Car-Lo knows the drill. He tweaks his chop.

Edit: I own pg. 9, hehe. I'd better start if off with a pic.

Nice work Carlos. Drop the rear a tad, and I know it's too late for this, but I'd like to see the tires tucked within the bodywork. But this is the closest to the C6 fascia look I've seen to date. BTW, is a diffuser type panel going to be incorporated into the bottom middle to hide the exhaust hardware?
Depending on how life pans out, I'm leaning toward 5th Gen Camaro, but this modification really gives me pause to selling our 85GT cause no one choppes a t-top Fiero, dammit.

Hmm. IMO I think the wind should extend towards the end corners of the car (they seem to be a bit too short). I think the Camero bow-tie wing would be better suited for the car.

exoticse,

IMO I would follow JScott's thoughts. Pontiac really in the begining went "all-out" in creating a really non-after market looking wing for the Fiero. making it wider or longer from end-to-end would be a little over kill. Why? If you add material to one part, you may have to or will need to add material at the end tips to balance the look of the wing. That's extra weight which in turn may lead to breakage or saging in the middle?

The Silver choptop isn't truly balanced in the rear IMO. The rear end needs a minor rear front fender flaring. Maybe not as extreme as #15 but just a little less like the Redux. One of the truely "good" ideas about adding the front fender to the back is that you can limit the flaring as little as 1" to 6" if needed. I'm starting to think GM had this in mind when creating the front fender. It is just to easy for "this" to be added by accident? For those with extra fenders laying around.....go to your fiero and see for yourself. I'm truly shocked!




Do u have any pics of this adding of the front fender to the back??? id like to see this it sounds like a intresting thing to do after i start my choptop

This one had it all (at one time)...

Choptop, Widebody, ( scoops) and Wing (with 6" flared wing stands, also extended wing tips)!
Is this style still okay, it has been around for a long time now or is it out of date, I still love it ?
lots have changed to lip spoilers. What do you think ?

Seeing out the back window is overrated! I can't see out the back window in my chop top trainer (Solstice Coupe) either. I just drive it like a fine Italian sports car and not worry about what’s behind me

Could someone photochop a stock GT, keeping the stock angles between the windshield and roof, basically just cutting a few inches off the rear end above the quarter panel and lowering? Blending to look asthetically pleasing of course...
