ReMera UPDATES: Received digital AUX gauges from Tom Sweet:


Also preparing the interior that I pulled from the ReMera to go into its new Fiero:

This car was picked up for the DOHC ...being swapped into the Argenta and the current 2.8 will be swapped into this one while keeping the 4 speed.
This will be repainted with a daily driver paint job....may have found a cheaper way to get this done...removed the black plasti-dip from the 88 panels that were on the Testarossa originally:



I need to stick a few pieces into some clamps and glue them back to OEM form...then

Going to order a wood grain dash kit from BD Trim:

Medium Burl Wood

Already have a short shifter and boot for it.

Need to clean and pressure wash the OEM carpet that I pulled from the ReMera...then will install in this car as well.

ReMera UPDATES: PM from Amida last night...all the smaller interior pieces have been completed...only the rear side speaker panels still have to be completed.


I think they turned out really nice and will raise the bar just a little more on the interior

Lovin this build and the coverage provided.

I really like even the "concept" of the Remera, great idea, and the execution has far surpassed the projection, IMHO.

BIG

Pinned as a favorite long ago!

HAGO!

Sage...thanks and glad you enjoy it...it is here to entertain and inspire

ReMera UPDATES: Cut the tinted plexi-glass down to size for Tom's digital gauges:


Used stock to test..since the G1 is based off of stock...just mimic'd the clear stock one.
  • Measure
  • Mark
  • score a few times
  • snap a few times
  • file it to exact curves with hand file


SpeedHut gauge over-lays are due in tomorrow.

Amida is shipping the smaller pieces...which will me allow me to permanently install the G1 dash and get everything bolted down and wires tied into place.
Which in turn will let me finish up all the wiring work for power mirror, power window & other switches, heated seats, USB ports, infotainment center , sub woofer, headrest speakers, etc.

Dipping the ends of the billet lever set in black plasti-dip to match the two-tone feel:



Also cleaned up the AMP...by shifting the sub woofer volume knob over ...looks balanced now:






Still need to deal with some gap around the top of the cigarette lighter panel.

Argetna UPDATES: Pulled the DOHC from the donor car last night...need to clean her up and get her ready to install in the Argenta.



Also..the donor car frame is shot (serious cancer)...saved this engine just in the nick of time...so everything that is salvageable and worth a damn...will be yanked...then the frame will go off to the recycling yard.

This is where the cradle was attached...sorta (Driver's side rear):

Indiana Car...snow, salt & sand from the winters.

This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.
knocking out a few other sets while doing it.

Backside of the needles get white:


...to reflect the translucent blue that will be painted on the front:


Giving a similar effect as John's:

but they will be a little bit brighter because of the white on the back...learning from John and trying to improve them a tad.

Be careful of where you get your suspension components from.

I got one of those packages from ebay and the ball joints were garbage. I had one of the threads on the ball joint fail. Then when I went to replace the ball joint, the press fit was oversized and the quality ball joints that I tried to put in after were sloppy and had to be welded in.

doublec4,

Appreciate the heads up...was suspect at the price and will do a very careful inspection of the parts...if looks like inferior...I will hunt down the TRW parts.
