Truly incredible build. I just spent many hours reading this from start to finish. I look forward to continued updates and seeing the final product.

Ran across Bozzie on fb and boy has he been busy ! Don’t want to steal his thunder but he has yet another project in the works (non-Fiero) that is going to be sick ! Can’t speak for him but I do believe this Fiero project is still progressing. * update Boz says the Fiero project continues, he just bounces between his various projects as parts become available and as his mood directs. 👍

Hello, as its definatly been awhile ! I have been keeping busy with other projects around the shop and sadly Alchemy has been just sitting on a rack . Probably the worst thing i couldve done to her. As before being on the lift i was always tripping over her and butting heads, and well, she was in my way so a incentive to work on her. But i'll be getting back to her soon. Ive picked up a few other projects. A factory five GTM car, and a 365gtb convertible as well. Both needing work in more ways than one. So for now, ive been dedicating myself to this TTOP car that i have with 39k miles. Plans in the works include a 3800SC swap. Cam , intercooler as well as ported intake and Northstar throttle body. Pics to come. Also full rebuild of front suspension, cut 88 front springs , rear coilovers and a 329 ratio auto tranny with a 500rpm higher stall converter. Battery relocation, leather seats, and sound system. Project currently moving fast so more to come ! Hope all are well and being safe in this crisis. More time for our cars thou !

Boz
