Ok....spring is here and here is my labor of love. 3.8 crate engine. ZZP stage 3 turbo cam, ZZP aluminum heads, Stattama intake, Billet throttle body, ZZP long tube SS headers..sent out and jethot coated.....etc.......Tranny is a G6 6speed, Quaife differential thats been cyro'd. Archied 6sp install kit, aluminum flywheel and stage 3 clutch. Turbo is a Garret Gt35r liquid cooled BB.......Getting this to fit and work is another story. Harness Made by TImm and computer programed by Ryan at Sinister............

holy badass fiero! I love that you have common things in both body (firrari) and power (3.8 Turbo) but they are both done in rather unique ways. going to be amazing when it's done.

I laid the glass in after i protected it with masking tape on the edges. Its a good fit. I spaced it out to acount for the spacing on the glass, glue and mounting tab. Hear it is ready to glass in the mounting flange.

After the glass is removed this is the opening for it with the new mounting flange. A ruff opening.




Then i trimmed it to 1/2 " all the way around.

I then placed the glass in with a 1/16 tape wrapped around it to provide a nice fit without being to tight.



A layer of filler is applied.....sanded and reapplied and sanded
