There isn't a huge difference with 40mm wheels to 35mm wheels.. You might want to measure that one out...

Nooooo, say it isn't so? I was hoping to see this bad boy finished. If you sell it I hope it goes to a forum member.

One thing for sure, with the wing out of the way----we can see out of the back, hehe.

I'm surprised that many who have raised wings don't add wing tips?

I'm surprised too, without the wingtips the raised spoiler looks too detached, like a surfboard.

I thought that would get your attention...don't feel bad, I bumped my head first chop top I ever sat in. The chop t-top is much easier to slide into. That's something to look forward to.

seems its a wing molded into the decklid! i love the creativity of using old fiero pieces to create something new. not too many cars you can do that with. ive used quite a few door skins so far to build mine.
what else could i use hmmm.

In order to fit the morbidly Dubish rear rims you'll need to remodify the IRM rocker. Here's a pic of Archie and crew performing the task. I'm guessing, the distal end where flarred out by 3"

This bump is for Frank and the Floridian fender flare crew: Hey Frank, I'd recommend you guys working in "groups"?

1. first group.........cutting of the front fender flares for all (3) cars
2. Second group...riveting the fender flares onto the car.
3. Third group.......fiberglassing the fender glass
4. Fouth group.....smoothing out the fender flares (this may take awhile so, keep him busy bar-be-que n.'

Oh yeah, one other point: Get the wide rims first, then glass it around the rims.

Sir Wideness nearing it's completion: Oh yeah, BUMP.






Question: Too Wing or Not to Wing...that is the question.



Would a raised/moved back Fiero wing flow with this design?


Or a Camero bow-tie wing? While you're at it, could you use the Ferrari's 430 rear side window in the photoshop. Photoshoppers....you have a mission, hehe.

I think I'd say no wing, you've seen this from a different thread"



But I might change it up in photoshop and add what you want...

EDIT: by bowtie wing, do you mean the lip spoiler found on old camaros?

Nah, the raised wing is bit on the "over-kill" side of things ( can't belive I said that, hehe). I plan on using Sage's Camero bow-tie wing thingie. A picture is worth a thousand words...your photo shop proves it.

Archie and the Crew are currently working on Troyboy's chopper. They plan on getting re-starting on the hood scoop and front wheel arches next week. I called Doug today for the Camero bow-tie wing but, that''s about it.
