Well...after owning the car for over 2 years, collecting a bunch of parts for it (which is in a constant state of flux)
I finally started work on my project. Starting with a pretty thrashed '88 Formula, I plan on making it look as close
to the picture at the top of the page.... http://www.fierocountry.us/myproject1.html
I just started, it will probably take a couple of years to get it into a reasonable facsimile of the artists concept
rendering (thanks to Peter Archer at Stingraysstudios.com for that).

Cool! I'm curious to see how you turn a Fiero into a retro second gen Firebird (j/k)
I'll be watching, too.

What are you using to "bond" the scoop to the hood? is that Kitty Hair? if it is, it might work, though strength is a concern with it :P. if it were me, I would have gotten a bit of fiberglass resin, and some Matte and Cloth and glassed it on, and finish it with either Kitty Hair or Bondo for a final flowing finish. Anyway, it looks real neat!

How about Lazer? Or, has that already been used? Your thought?

Cordially,

I thought of a few names, Lazer was one, but then I didn't want someone to think it was an old Chrysler.....
I think Vizion fits....

Your hood scoop shape reminds me of the "air grabber" hoods on 71-72 Plymouth Road Runners.



I restored a 1972 Road Runner and boy do I miss it.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to work on it for a few weeks. We've had some family losses last month, so I wasn't able to work on it.
The scoop is a low-rise L88 Corvette piece that I got from a fiberglasser in Alliance, OH.

Ok...I finally got back to work on my hood.
Had a rough last quarter last year, losing my mother and 2 uncles, then my accident in Virginia which totaled my 03 Mustang...
but here are a few pics of it after sanding the skim coat...



and I finally have a running Fiero...so I hope to have this installed on it for Daytona....
