Looks stunning Lisa and Troy! I'll bet the previous owner will be caught saying "I never should've sold that car" for the rest of his life. Happy motoring!

The man cave is now Lisa's Lounge !

What an awesome pair of rides, you are both very lucky.

Great job Archie and crew,..still very, very sad to see you guys go, but i guess all good things come to an end and you went out with one hell of a bang !

Troy and Lisa can't wait to see and hear about these cars tearing up the streets and shows.

Congratulations.

P..S. would be cool if you guys get 2 go pro cameras and mount them so you can shoot each other driving side by side, and also get people's reactions.

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!!!

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, .........

Is there any information available about the dash used in this build? Was this a one-off or are they available for purchase somewhere?

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 .

This is a very unusual situation. I hope nobody minds this being posted here.

Are an original set of molds for the Enterra Vipre worth saving?

As we are at this, we are trying to get the various body panels close enough to paint that we can paint it with high build primer.

With just regular primer for now, this panel is looking good.





We are also working on mounting the lights in the front bumper.....

Working on figuring out exactly where to place them.....





Also modifying the lower front valance to mirror the lower edge of the front bumper....





Then we determine how much of a pocket we want for the lights. Flush mount or set back into a pocket.....









Then building the pocket using 2 pcs. of wooden block shaped like the lights.





Make the pockets & mounting tabs.













............


Were did you get those front lights?

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.

Thanks

Thanks Troy!

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.

Winter blahs had me go back through this thread. Archie, you and your crew did an amazing job. Thanx to you and Troy for the documentation.

Great read.

Now, i can't wait for the new build season to begin.
