With GREAT Wonderment and Pride , Alchemy feels the Sun in her glass for the 1st time in almost 2yrs. !! With all fluids checked , she fired right up and gave me the shivers as I let the clutch out and rolled her out.










Now to get busy with the body exhaust, interior and misc

Masking the area off and cut a few strips of mold fabric. I'll poke them in with a little flathead.



After soaking them in resin I poked a few in and then laid one on the top to dry

Boz


Bozzie...your build continues to look fantastic! Closer and closer every day!

Glenn doesn't have a build on PFF, though he does read and post here. His build is on a tube frame chassis and documented on MadMechanics

Continuing on here. Now that I can bring her outside ive noticed that the vacuum doesn't build up fast enough for the brakes. So I got in a CVR vacuum pump. This should solve it.

Mounted this Puppy here. Somehow I have to put the MR2 pump in here as well later. Nother problem another day. Wired it up with ignition. It takes about 30sec. to get to 15hg of vacuum. Figured it will give me time to check over everything ever time I start her. Not a bad thing to do anyway. The more that goes into her the more patient you get and rushing is not a option ...even driving .....someday

Problems never end till ya fix em' ! Ive always had a issue with the drain back from the turbo to the oil pan. Under hard acceleration the oil sloshs to the rear and that's where the turbo drain goes. Its as high as I could get it. Well...... that's the end of that. Sick of having blow by and smoke coming out the exhaust ! Mounted a RB Racing scavenge pump just under and forward of the turbo. Its pricey but worth it. Helicut gears are QUIET.... not that it matters but it lasts longer to Plumed it the valve cover. Also wired it to a relay with a delayed OFF so it runs for a extra 25 seconds. This pretty much finishes off all the pressure in the line.

Its geat to make body parts removable. Something I didn't think of in my first build but now its gods rule Running some wires for the taillights and markers. These will have plugs on them to make it easy to remove anytime. All wires wrapped in Tessa Tape....great stuff !!

Multitasking a lot now. Makes things go faster as it comes together, feels like 2nd gear of the build now

Working on the side skirts here. Got some 1x8" boards to mock it up. Used a table saw to cut the angles and glue them together.


The main top area, cut on a angle to go with the door bottom. Clamped it in place and moving onto the next.

I cut the front area on a 30degree angle and glued it together. The bottom of the new sill is cut to match. All nailed and glued. I'll sand it down abit later. The rear part of the rocker will be built later when Alchemy goes for a alignment so I can put it where it needs to be, as for now I have no idea where that is ! For now time to build the exact opposite for the passenger side.

Fooling with the exhaust now. The downpipe is 4" so I need a few parts to convert this to a dual 3" tip.

Back to the Exhaust. I took the 180degree 4" pipe and trimmed it to angle toward the rear off the 4" downpipe. There is NO muffler. I had one on this before but with a turbo it already quiets it down abit.....and since this is definatly not a daily driver and everything else is already loud, I figured why bother Put the rear bumper back on to align the tip.

Tip is where I want it and now to weld that together. Later on i'll cut the tip shorter at 90 degrees to the ground and then flip the excess that I cut over and reweld it to it so it actually faces straight back

Coated them with masking tape , which also formed the "boxed" end of the front of the rocker. This is where the upright of the lower rear front fender will attach to. Its crude but simple:

The rockers will be in 2 parts finally joining as 1. Because the rear is not aligned yet / after the stretch , I cannot judge where the rear part of the rocker is supposed to be. It will also transition into a 90degree vertical rocker from the 30degree one shown here. Here it is with 3 layers of glass

The last layer of glass I added some black gelcoat to the mixture. When I sand this down it will be easier to see the high / low spots.

Here's the pair drying :

After it dried I took a DA with 36grit paper and knocked the high spots down. Its pretty smooth for now. Later i'll duraglass it and get it straight. For now I just want to make the pieces and do all the finish work later Here it is after I popped it out.

In addition to the obvious eye candy, this thread is a treasure trove of how to's in terms of fiberglassing and fabrication. Bozzie did you have much fiberglass experience prior to this build ?

Tony, thank you for your insight on the build. You've been great from day one when I was just a "newbie" Ive always been a "mcgyver" type. Before Fiero's I was mostly into fabrication with electronics, metals, plastics and some fiberglass, nothing like the extent this build is taking. BUT, with lots of trial and error, redo's and failure , this project is coming true. I must say, that there are many on here that have inspired me, and sometimes kept me going on. There is a lot behind the scenes here, happiness, frustration, anger and anticipation. Its just amazing what you can do to these little cars. How you can create with your mind, and apply. How a dream can be made real in a sense that otherwise would not be possible to buy. Like all the different ways people are changing or restoring these cars. Like how I fell in love with the Koenig 512evalution and never looked back. I keep a pic in my office that I look at involuntary all the time and when I look at my car I tweek it just a little bit more I hope that those who see the builds on here take it as I did, as nothing is impossible, and patience is defiantly a virtue
