Congratulations on a job well done!

Troy,

My interior is original in black. It is mostly like the production Enterra cars but since it was made under the radar for the invester I think there are some minor differences like the door panels. I am putting in the electric windoows and power mirrors but the panels were never changed other than color so they are just painted black fiero door panels not the leather pocketed panels.. They were crank windows in the original car. Far as I know this is the only difference in the interrior. It also is the better second generation body which were made better like Lisa's car. It has the grey sterling paint that was one of the four orginal paints for the Enterra. I will try to get the pictures I have and either figure out how to post a picture here or send them to you and let you post them for me.

And once again, Archie and team outdo themselves. Taking a basket case and creating a work of art. Outstanding work and this will be another project that others will try to aspire to.

You and your guys make it look easy.

Well done.

Cheers
Don

Great job guys !!!
That looks really good
I really like the mirrors and the fact that the light strips were painted but one can still see them when they light up.

If you don't mind me asking...
what car is the paint from ? is it a Lexus ?
I really like it

On the contrary Troy, i think someone did do some upgraded buttons a while back.

i think it was randye ??

Not sure they were billet, but they were metallic and would look better than stock IMO.

** EDIT - yes they were billet and he machined them himself **

What did you do? let a wild animal loose inside the car? How did you manage to get the interior looking like that?

Figured I'd post some pictures of the Vipre that i took wednesday when i was down at the shop.





This has to be my favorite "fiero" I've seen. Not because i got to be a small part of it or as it seems to be Archie's last big build, but because the lines and the craftsmanship and skill that the entire car encompasses.

that's just my 2 cents.

Update

The car is getting pretty close to being DONE.

While all of the body & interior panels have been fitted .... right now is the 1st time they've all been on the car at once. And the last time, in more ways than one.

The engine & transmission are done & the operation of them together has been optimized.

There are still have a few things to do. Including a wheel alignment, installation of the custom made A/C hoses & an AC recharge, A trip to the Dyno & the Exhaust tips. (We still haven't found the tips that trip our trigger).

I want to thank Rob & Kris for a great run. And Thanks to Troy, Lisa, Curley, Jim Buell & several others for giving us projects that showcase what Rob & Kris can do.

Enjoy....

LOL, actually, I wasn't on the clock. So watching you work for a few hours was my alternate reason for not getting the lawn mowed at home.

And it was your entertainment for the day.

I was actually quite tired when we left the shop.
