Madcurl, you going to smooth the quarter pannel so there isn't the line in front of the rear wheel? Or are you going to leave it?

Ok getting down to the time to make a decision.

Which way to go ?? ARRRRRGH !

Two cars would be nice, but i have to go on the assumption that i will have just one car.

The reason why I did not smooth-out the line was because of the VDC kit in FL. I could smooth-out the visual line after the VDC is install but I need to remove it later for coping.

The area around the nose each has a nose piece. Matched with the Fiero Store deck vents molded and shaped might look good. Using a 95 Firebird vents is better and less complicated IMO.

As the pic shows, by allowing the line to continue in front the rear wheel instead of smoothing over it....will allow for "on & off" applications such a VDC kits.

Well I have always loved Madcurls new ride. He is doing an amazing job, minus the headlights.. Sorry, its a nice mod, I am just not a fan of celica's. Too bad my car isn't that close to completion, as it might have been brought up in this post . Ohh well, have a good one.

Custom2m4, i think you are getting madcurl's numerous choptops mixed up. The chop top in the picture above is chop top #15, it does not have celica lamps, but may soon have the new corvette ones.

Madcurl's Fiero redux is the one with the celica lamps.

This is the only pic I found of it, and this sorta goes along with this thread. That looks like a Camaro Rear end, its got the Camaro Fin. Anyone know whats involved with stickin these on? I really like that look. Does it fit on or did he have to mod the hell outta it to do it?

I saw a build up of a dash on one and assumed it was for #15.. Damn it Madcurl you need to show more pictures of your cars.. aka this Redux. lol I've only seen headlight pictures...

I have a 2nd gen camaro spoiler :P Ohh I showed you.. Mines bigger. You win with the rims... But not with the spoilers Mr. Curl!

Okay here is madcurl's official line up to keep things straight,.

#11 aka the Silver Chop Top


The Fiero Redux (Celica lamps) Still under construction-soon to be chopped

Chop top #15 - Still under construction.

Under construction - The Stealth (to include choptop, Norm's flip front end, 2005 Vette headlamps,
and a secret rear mod)

Soon to come - A 5th yet un-named project

After that - Welllllllll stay tuned hehehehe,....

Not much in time for Daytona,... i will be happy if i can just get the GT clip modified and on, and the car down here to florida.

If Archie is kind to this poor guy (me) on the price, i might be ok hehehe.

Maybe some rims. Overall still debating the other body mods, big brakes etc.

Yeah tell me about it !

Gotta find some volunteers up near Lansing, Michigan first who can rehang the panels back on the body for transport.

Dan took the panels off for paint and has since injured himself so he can't do it for me.

Anybody ?????
