yeahh today I received my ICs so that I can complete my rear LED tail lights control units ... these are Maxim IC circuits ... they will control the 2 modes (parking and brake) for LED intensity ... here are the ICs



Perty huh ............. but now I gotta find a way to solder them onto the IC board ....



I guess I got to start by finding a socket for them !! They are pretty small !!!!

Started also on the facia modifications... more to come...... the tail light panel will soon be istalled for all to see .... I'm makin it purty right now .... stay tuned .. here are the pics.

Facia add on mods...........[/QUOTE]

This is still something I want to do. I haven't been able to find a nose piece that is damaged so I am not messing up a good one and the cost to ship these things is aweful. Wish I had bone yards closer to me that had a couple of Fieros in them. I think they crush them right away. Looking good by the way. Can't wait to see the LED tail lights in action.

------------------

Getting closer every day!

Could it be just because you did not filled the hole left when you remove the center pole?

I filled it on mine

Ruffy --- I have a OEM fiero 4 speed in it with a Centerforce clutch .. I still have not had any issues tranny wise ... must be I do not over do my 0 - 50 accelarations .. I do have a couple of drag strip runs but usually I drive like an oldie I'm never in a rush and love to hear the Widow's V8 growl at low speeds ....

Ive decided to not put in a OEM Impact bar instead I will weld on a square tube so it will support the hitch reciever. I took measurements cut out the hole and will bring my old hidden hitch to my welder so he can weld it in properly. I got time to also patch up my front fascia and get it ready for sanding and paint. My tail lights also are fiberglassed together ready to receive JHP87 one piece tail light panel .... here are todays pics


Rear impact bar removed !! Ouff rust beach !!


All tidied up


Cut out hole...


Hidden hitch will be cut and welded to the Widow

About your front Fascia. I have an idea. I'm not sure if it will work but here goes. You could take that one that you have there and take the whole center out so you just have those 2 side pieces left right? Then take your fascia from the widow and cut along that line on either side, drop it the 3 or so inches, put in those pieces of the other fascia and glass over it. Should come out looking something like this...

That C-clamp in the top photo is one of the reasons you have the "perma-droops"

Flip the nose upside down and hit the center section with a heat gun and try reshaping the center back to normal.
If that doesn't work you will likely have to glass in some aluminum reinforcement on the inside of the droopy section...a couple of sharp "V" shaped strips approx. 1-2 inches wide with the small end of the "V" pointing forward, (one on each side), should do it.

I also don't think you used enough bolts to hold the chin spoiler on!!

It's been a very short weekend.. had to work Friday night and Saturday but I got to put some time in today. There were a couple of odds and ends I wanted to complete because they were really bugging me so I did those. I installed my air horns between the impact bar and the honeycomb. Painted the shift console cover black to see what it would look like... but I find it is TOO black will have to do some kind of color scheme and put one of my metal spiders in between the power window buttons. I also started to redo the wiring in the engine compartement.. the LT1 is getting re-inserted 24th of May. The PO did a crappy job on the wiring so I started separating these so I can look in the service manual what their uses are .... I still have alot of work in the engine bay to do like clean up and put in a heat shield..... huuum long way to go still but we will be ready for Frazee ... we are heading out there 18th of Jjuly .... more on road trip soon .... here are todays pics.



Close up of the air horns


They are located between the impact bar and the honeycomb


Center console test painted ... looks way to much black gotta figure out a paint scheme



Engine bay wiring LOT AND LOTS to do ...


PO wiring wow !!!! got to sort it out !!!


Now I'm looking to buy one of these...

Close up of the carpet

Then I took apart my front fascia radiator left and right shrouds apart


trace the pattern onto the rubber carpet and cut them out

and VOILA !!! New shrouds cost me $4.75

I also did more sanding on the front fascia and heated up the chin spoiler to try to remove the droop ... nnahh didn't work gonna build an aluminium support for it..


Now I have a problem !!!! one of the wires from the gas tank is cut .. any of you guys know where these plug into ?? Cant seem to find the schematic for that plug !!!

I prepped the front facia and glassed the chin spoiler to the fascia ... thats why there are tons of nuts & bolts to hold them together. started sanding the spider cracks would of kept them to go with the theme ... but really doesnt look good... I sanded to the previous color ... GOLD hummm yep color code says it was originally GOLD..




Sanded and pâinted the console faceplate ... gonna look perty


The front end is almost complete its ready to start the battery relocation mod ... lots of sanding this weeked also gotta start tie-rap my battery relocation cables .. wanted to pass them through the cabin but not easy ... went the lazy way underside it is


She will be going to my friends garage Tuesday to get the new 5.7L SBC installed Love the GROWL of a V8.... I wonder is a Fiero with a V8 falls in the category of ''Heavy Chevy'' ?? ... oooh boy Shauna's gonna rip me apart on this too ahh oh well cant win them all ... Does anyone know which wire I must GROUND for the radiator fan to turn on ??? PIC is worth a thousand words ... I have a GEN II wiring set-up now .. Thanks for any help

My front splitter drooped worse than yours. I just took a chunk of stock metal that was 2 inches wide and put a slight bow in it. Drilled it then slapped a couple rivets. Rivets can look good if done uniformly. Example.

Can't answer any of your questions right now, but man, your car is coming along nicely. I bet the weather has been at least a little better recently. It makes it much nicer to get things done.
