WOW! That's fantastic seeing both cars side by side. Congrats to Troy and Lisa and team Archie on two of the most beautiful fieros on the planet! Like Tony said,I would love to see the reaction when you two hit the streets
The comment was made that the previous owner is probably sorry for having sold this to Lady Lisa. Not true at all, there is absolutely no way that I could have rebuilt that Enterra to be even 1/2 as good as Archie and company did. I am very happy that it got done and that it has a wonderful owner and place to reside. I just wish that New York were not so far from Kent, Washington - so my only regret is that I likely will never get to see it in person. A beautiful car - one we can all be envious of and I wish Lady Lisa and Troyboy all the best and wonderful drives - in either of their cars. Archie & crew - great job!!!

Good, it only took the USPS 3 freakin weeks to deliver the Express mail package. Glad it is all sorted

I'll bet the previous owner will be caught saying "I never should've sold that car" for the rest of his life.

Bill, I had to chuckle when I read Bloozberry's comment. You should've given me a chance to make that "bet" with Blooze before you chimed in.
That's one fine lookin' Enterra Vipre. Hats off to Archie and his fine crew for a beautiful job. Lisa is one lucky lady!
We finished the brake upgrade.. Note do not do a brake upgrade that only has remanufactured parts available . Had to swap the rear calipers 2 times until we found a good set . Will never do another Lebaron brake swap! We still have a few tweaks to do on the LS4 swap before we consider the car done . We have to have it Dyno tuned and quiet it down a bit, it sounds great to me and Archie, but Lisa wants it quieter.
No shows this year, you only get to debut a car once so she wants it complete before the first show. We still have to reupholster the seats, do the headliner, wait for Amida to finish his G1 door panels, alarm system, parking asst. system, .........
Just came upon this thread and I was wondering what happened to Lisa's Enterra project. Must say that you two like them fancy; one full custom and the other so rare it could be considered custom. Drive them, and enjoy them, you only live once!

Due to complications with the production of the G1 door panels , We have decided to use our Firebird door panels so we can complete the enterra interior. We just have to have them upholstered to match the dash .
Troy & Lisa...Love them & thank you for sharing, but could please hurry up and install them And then take lots of great pictures...for us slackers that have to help out the kids 1st b4 some of us get their G1 door panels Got 2 sets to knock out.
Really would like to see a shot of it installed and your arm resting...trying to gauge how far the vette handle's protrude. I am considering utilizing 4 of these door pull tabs (2 per door) and nylon pull strap looped...Leaving the entire arm rest without a handle blocking the comfort.

We have received a lot of emails and PM's in regards to Lisa's firebird door panels. For now she is going to hold on to them. Archie modified the door panels for us and may be able to make another set.
For those of you wondering, I really loved the side mirrors that were used, and had PM'd Troy asking if he would share the details on them. I had found a pic of them in another thread where he referenced them, so didn't have the details contained here-in.
