Sail windows from WCF to be produced.







Not your ordinary run-of-the-mill sail windows here. Notice the curve.

These look like the molds that were made by someone on the forum. I can't find the thread atm, but I remember he was a machinist, and it looked like he lost interest after getting the molds made, iirc. Any idea if these are those? It'd be nice to know they aren't just collecting dust on a shelf somewhere after all his work.

They are from pokey... Last I heard was that pokey was thinking tO give chris the vacuum machine to actually produce the molds but then the last post by pokey was to wire the machine up at his shop. He needed to bring in some heavy duty electrical work and that's the last I heard from pokey. Ill find the link for the original postings.

i don't know if Chris (WCF) reads this thread, but if he does Chris it might be a good idea to pick Curly's brain while you got #20 in your shop !

The guy has a warehouse full of design ideas floating around in his head, and WCF has the skills to make them happen.

WCF Hella DOT Fiero bucket lamp modification (continued)

Out with stock


In for the new: tweaking part to perfection.


Apparently, some of the newer style dual lamps that a few people have aren't working as was intended. The bucket doesn't open. WCF is perfecting their own. Hopefully, I'll be buying WCF set.

What's Up at WCF? Bay Area weather!



Yeah, they answer the phones.



It must be tax return time. WCF is cranking out the 3800SC headers and down pipes.




The mock-up 3800 makes the process of making headers easy.







Two down and one more to go.

Blue hose: high pressure
Copper line: return line.

Starting from the engine to the front of the car the lines snake their way underneath the car along side the gas tank (similar to D1S).




















WCF P/S unit continued.





Might have to cut out a portion of the cover plate.





D1S supplied the need spool and parts for the N* p/s unit. Thanks Kevin.

Is this for the NSX transmission or the F40? If it's for the F40 do the guys at WCF know about Performance Autowerks? They're contact info and details are in my thread.

//www.fiero.nl/forum/F...ML/085180-2.html#p62

I want to make sure anyone that's involved with the 6 speed swaps knows about them.

It's the F40 6-speed. What performance upgrades does AutoWerks perform on the F40?

The process takes about 2 weeks, and the cost varies depending on whether or not you want a LSD installed.

Complete tear down and rebuild

Cryo treat all steel internals

WPC process all steel internals

Install Quaife LSD (LSD price not included)

$1500.00

The LSD runs $1,200 and includes pressing in the new bearings.

This is supposed to increase the metal's strength by at least 15%. Archie has been using them for a couple of years now. I know they send the internals off to CA somewhere to have them treated, but they do all the labor in house. It's something to consider for people using the transmission with higher powered engines.

Due to the rack and connecting ends-the spare tire tub needed some modifications-mainly, cutting and removing part of the tube. No doubt I'll need to fiberglass are covering over the exposed area.

I'm not sure. I arrived at the shop once the hoses where installed, but I'll ask Tuesday regarding your question.

Tanknology.

The cut out:


The test fit:






Some minor adjustments and design cutting should do the trick.



The bracket is stainless steal so I'll have it polished




Overall nice design, but I will have to tweak it a bit more. The goal is to look like it belongs there instead of looking like a cheap coat hanger.

Hey curly,
That is pretty cool that they are making a power steering unit for the fiero, looking at the pics it appears that all that holds the actual rack to the adapter plate is those clamp hold downs..? Please tell me that is not all that is holding the steering of the car from moving right? The mount looks okay altho I would probably have preferred it be thicker material and tie into more of the car but if the only thing that holds that rack in position is those clamps then I just think that is unsafe.... Perhaps there is some bolts on the back side that holds things together? The pics look pretty complete and the post down the page also looks pretty good as well but I do not see any other fastening points.

Also that license plate looks cool and is well made obviously but does it not totally block the intake of the car and maybe make it run hotter. I would think somehting that came up from underneath the front fascia and was to one side a bit might look and work better no? Just some thoughts.... The rest of the work going on there seems to be really good and those 3800 installs also look very nice. I especially like the exhaust work pics. Someone there knows how to weld... thanks for posting these.. peace

Actually, WCF reuses the stock brackets. The original mounting point is removed and replaced at the different location. The clamps are bolted onto the bracket and it to the Pontiac Fiero subframe (drivers side only). My pictures aren't detailed as the ones listed here: http://www.westcoastfiero.c..._pinion_convert.html

As for the front license plate-that's Troy's choptop #022. Mine here (the one with the rust, hehe) is #020 and doesn't have a front plate.

#022


#020 (under construction)

Okay, how many cars are like this so far? Do you think that the stock mounts are strong enough for this new rack setup? Honestly that is a part of the car I have not been into yet so I have no idea what it looks like but if those are the factory clamps that is already on there then I take it back... Honestly surprised that the rack and pinion in the fiero is only held on that way but what the hell do I know right haha... I am used to seeing most racks that have some holes for hardened thru bolts that mount the rack like my old mustangs and other cars I have owned. The rack is only held on by two straps surprises the hell out of me. Is there some kinda positive stop built into the casting to keep it from sliding back and forth under the clamps should they loosen up somehow? I suppose I put my foot in my mouth here but that just does not look right to me.

I see on troyboys car the openings for the radiator are not impeded at all by the license plate bracket but it looks like it might cover a lot of the factory cars opening. I suppose those are for a specific application and not a production item... peace
