Most of the time i would say yes HE would most likely sell you just the pieces you want. but with post like this HE might not want your business. But than Archie is a bigger man than me.

Well, first off I am not going to jump on the "CLETUS BANDWAGON"... There are DOZENS of shops and MORE PROFESSIONAL MECHANICS working on Fiero doing the SAME things that he does... INCLUDING CHOPTOPS.... I am not bashing Archie, just stating facts. I understand that he has done alot for Fiero performance and styling (choptpps/bodykits) ... BUT, He wasnt even the first to do either... Now this is just one persons opinion, not everyones just to be clear.... YES, I will get some negatives for this from the "CLETUS CLAN" But, thats ok... someone had to say it. +'s are welcome too...

You know, kinda makes me wish that I had done the same thing everyone else was doing when they were puttin the hate on that bondo queen you had for so many years.

If you come off as this much of a jerk on the phone, it's no wonder people don't want to be nice to you on the phone.

So let me get this straight........In your little world it's alright to make derogatory comments about a mans work ,name and phone skills in one thread and than expect him to treat you unbiased in another?

I don't think I'm bashing you.........just trying to understand your logic........... I have never once said anything bad about you or your SmoothGT. I always have admiration for the guys who can make their own creations. I also believe in treating others like they treat me. I'm not the better man who can walk the other way.

Y'all wanna keep this crap to PM's? It's getting old and annoying.....

As for the original posters question, I think I remember Archie stating one way or the other (I forget which direction) in the thread where he developed these pieces.

smthgt...why does some one need to call you? if you posted those comments then explain yourself in a post. who is bashing you if the are simply repostng your post. i am fairly new here but i have been here long enough to know that when certain people call archie "cletus" (which is a cool name btw) they are trying to bash him (i do know about the anti archie group). i looked into this post because it asked about the mad arch. i have done business with ARCHIE, i read about the mad arch kit and did some research. i asked questions via pm, email and in posts and was answered promptly. when i called his shop he spoke to me in a professional manner and was very helpful. i ordered the kit via telephone and he shipped it quickly and very well packed. the price was reasonable so i don't know what more you could ask for...i wish everyone i did business with was as helpful and upstanding. . . not to mention, how many people that were involved in the fiero aftermarket are still here.
so if you don't mind, why don't you explain what you meant here, as you posted those comments here.
this way we all will know what you meant and be able to understand what is being misunderstood.

please don't take this as an attack, i am just asking a question.

You know I really think people should look at the thread that my original comments were posted. Someone else callec him Cletus and I just thought it was funny and followed suit. I also said Archie has done alot for Fiero performance and styling. I never said one bad thing about his business. Others come on here and talk extremely bad about him. I NEVER said anything bad EXCEPT that I talked to him and he was smug... I only said he wasnt professional to me. I also just said he wasnt the first to do it all (choptop/bodykits). That pissed people off. If I thought sooo badly about Archie, then why would I even start this thread to put his parts on a Fiero that I am doing work too..?? I was just pointing out that others do what Archie does. Thats all.

I believe that Cletus is his first name, Archie is his last name, or that's the impression I've gotten. Archie may be short for something?? Not really any of my business though.

And he has put out very neat parts for our little cars.

SMTHGT, I'm not here to bash you, but I am curious. Whatever became of the SmoothGT that you were doing all of those body mods on? Did it ever reach finalization? You don't have to answer me in here, you can send a PM if you want. I didn't want to hijack your thread, but I was just wondering because that car always peaked my interest.

If i was ordering from a fiber glasser with a mould which i have in past is asked for exacly what i want the parts non finished rough not sanded or bondoed and just the part of the rough cast so that you desired. You save money they save time and you get the part of the mould you want and not the rest. I am sure archie would like most be happy to cast only what you need for an agreed price.

If I needed this information, I would PM or E-mail Archie.

IMO, you do not need to start a post asking everyone else, ask the man who is selling the product.

His answer would be yes or no. If it's no, then live with it.

If you don't get along over the phone, so be it. I don't care/(need) to know.

Mr. Hulki... no problems w/ the questions... SmoothGT just needed paint and side windows. I finished the choptop on it and the V8 swap. More/less, yes it was finished. The molds I had made from the widebody and the rear bumperwere thrown out to. After my mom passed away and I was able to move w/ my daughter. Since the whole estate was being challenged by my little sister, I was legally unable to remove my Fiero (SmoothGT). A few months after that I went by the house w/ a legal document to get my car and was told it must have been stolen. I found out later from my sister that my brother sold it for $50.00 to a scrapper that ended up crushing it... I decided to finally move out of east texas and let them have the whole estate and just start over.. thanks for the interest....

Dude that is messed up. I would never forgive them for something like that. But I'm sure there are bigger and better things to come with your creativity. Good luck!

You know what is really messed up..?? I went by my moms house for the first time in 2 1/2 years and the front door was kicked in, ALL the windows broke out, wall had holes knocked in them, furniture was gone... was very sad. Actually brought me to my knees crying. Last I heard my brother moved to San Antonio, and my sister to Houston. So, as far as me forgiving them... I really dont care if I EVER see them again. Besides them two and my mom, all I had left of my family was my uncle and he passed 3 months ago... I went through a tailspin for a few years but pulled myself out of it thanks to my wife of 3+ years and my kids/grandkids..

Well, I'm glad you had a good support system (family) to bring you out of that tailspin. Seeing my childhood home vandalized like that would make me have the same reaction. Sorry to hear about your uncle though, and glad you came back to us here.
