Argenta UPDATE: Decided to Paint her the same color scheme as the 2014 Stingray Corvettes...kinda of following this them through the flow of this car:



GM (2014) FLASH Red & (2014) Jet BLACK...matching the same paint lines as on it now.

Since the Fiero Argenta utilizes the same front stock hood...I am going to do another hood just like this one for the Argetna:

and add a pair of ProjectRetrofit's "SuperLow quad 60mm Full Time Low" head light replacesments:

These buckets will be hydro-dipped carbon fiber like my 1st set. (will also be putting a set of these in the ReMera)

Playing with the Idea of picking up one of the Pimpest Fiero re-bodies: A Zimmer Quicksilver


It is built on a 1986 with only 6749 documented MILES!

OK out of pure curiosity here, you can tell me to pound sand if you want since it's really none of my business, are you simply insanely wealthy and want to buy up a bunch of different style Fieros? Or are planning to sell them after restoring/fixing them up?

I clicked to read your thread expecting a build for a Fiero GTX and you've purchased so many different cars and have so many projects I just had to ask!

I enjoyed the read though and there's a lot of cool cars/pics.. would love to have a Zimmer too I think they're a cool part of Fiero history to own.

HMMM...."insanely wealthy"...not yet!....well off?...most definitely.

Personal collection (toys) for the most part, but I also work with quite a few members to develop new pieces...usually something I want and I think everyone else will as well!
I also own "Fiero Fantasy Concepts" and a few molds to some of the best Fiero Kit cars. I am the silent partner...never customer facing...if I can help it.
My day job is an Enterprise network & security design engineer for one of the largest providers in the US.

Argenta UPDATE:

It started out last night as simply swap out the 80 mph speedometer to the 120 mph...so I utilized some spare parts I had around and ended up replacing all the gauges & pods:

Argenta UPDATE: Starting cleaning the front up the front under the hood. Amazed to see how clean this car is once I get the grim off of everything. This car has been babied its in entire life



Still have hours of detailing, but looking like not a lot of restoration is going to be needed!

Need to still wire in the pig-tail for the AUX gauges:

and figure out a short in my trunk popper switch.

ReMera UPDATES: My fiberglass guy is a perfectionist...which is a good thing in my opinion:

Fiber-glassed over the key hole on the passenger side...really no need for it.







The headlight covers need a little more work in the morning:


Looks like we will be doing the primer seal tomorrow and begin painting on Monday.


The color I picked was GM's 2013 Crystal Red (GM# WA505Q):


With the black trim pieces being done in GM's 2014 Black (GM# WA8555)...the same that is utilized on the 2014 Corvettes.

Argenta UPDATES: Working on the one piece that isn't quite correct. The rear center grill piece is suppose to line up with 8 raised lines and 7 valleys to match the 79 Mercury Capri tail lights utilized in this build.
The issue being that Row 1,2 & valley 1 line up perfectly with the tail lights, but all remaining rows drift and don't line up correctly...so:

Again this highlights that I need to swap those tips for a set of C6 Corvette tips.

And then once we get the rows and valleys lined up correctly then its on to a little customization:

ReMera UPDATE: Order a front license plate holder....easy on and off as well!

Model V2s - Ferrari 328


This double clip version is both side and center mountable on the Ferrari and it fits to and projects out about 1.5” from the grill face. It was designed for cars with little or no front spoiler.

Argenta UPDATES: Order some replacement speakers.

Rodney's "OEM better quality speakers" front speakers.

And since this Argenta was built on a 1985 GT...there are no rear side speakers, only head-rest speakers...so this is the perfect time to try out The Fiero Store's "84-88 Rear Wall Speaker Panel with Speakers".


Also picked up a Shift Console Reproduction Sticker "5 Speed" from Rodney...since this 85 had a 4 Speed and we are about to swap it to a DOHC / 5 Speed:


Also grabbed another 1984 "all black" HVAC controls...looks so much cleaner in the G1 dashes

and give me 24 hours with the right products and I will have that looking brand new.

Waiting for my short shifter boot to return in the next few days with my next G1 dasht...I sent it to Rob Amida as a template for the ones he was making for my G1 dashes.

starting to mock it up for real using Rodney's Euro 308 I had laying around to get a true perspective of actual badge size to grill size...the spacing is about the same on the grill as the 328...just not as wide:

ReMera UPDATE: Been continuing to work on the ReMera's new front grills.

It has the traditional thin very cheap looking aluminum grills. I am going to borrow the very detailed photos provided by 2 different sellers on e-bay of a F328 front upper & lower grills.
This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.
Just order my (4) .125"Tx2"Wx60"L needed stripes of aluminum plate to make the upper grill from www.onlinemetals.com.
I have to take a few more measurements and then I will order the metal for the lower grill as well.
Once both are cut and assembled, I will powder coat them for longevity and easy cleaning

Then there is the rear one to recreate as well to replace the fiberglass version that is currently on it.
