Really would like a build thread of this Fierro. It has a lot of the options on it I would like to do to mine.

I bought a Fiero because my friends said I shouldn't.

I thought that was the car the infamous Whodeanie built in his original home shop and sold to a guy in Alabama... Was Clay's old car not matt black with a wide body? Pretty sure they are not the same car.

Looks like celica mirrors, Amida's 355 front bumper, Fiero Fiberglass 1/4 scoops and tapered aero trim. Think the rockers are Dietmars maybe? Hood scoop looks custom, but Tha Driver sells a similar one.

Check out Vendetta's build thread as well. Similar look.

I don't remember there being a comprehensive "build-thread" on this car. I just remember stuff happening to it and there the car was.

This was it's public debut at the Atlanta St. Patrick's Day Parade. That's TopNotch's 88 coupe behind it and Raydar's mug walking up the street.

Guess it was a good thing I skimmed over to the forum today. I bought it from Dean before he started up his shop.

I've actually been working on one - pulling photos from Dean's threads, documenting what he did - Plus the ton's of photo's I've taken to overhaul the interior. Plans in place for an engine upgrade, rehash the paint, and find somebody to build a tail light panel.

What lip was used for that rear wing? I love the way those tails were painted Im going to attempt to do that and get rid of the line in the center somehow. What tails are you switching to?

This is the car that used to belong to Claytonto... that is not Clay in the seat, it is Jesse (88lamb?)


Dean never said what the wheels are... and it is one of Tha Driver's hood scoops...
//www.fiero.nl/forum/F...L/075728-4.html#p156

They are most definitely Celica mirrors...
//www.fiero.nl/forum/F...L/075728-6.html#p204

The rear lip is a rod that he bent in the shape he wanted and glassed over it.
//www.fiero.nl/forum/F...L/075728-7.html#p253

The rockers are modified from a 355 kit, and it's Amida's 355 front fascia.
//www.fiero.nl/forum/F...L/075728-5.html#p162
//www.fiero.nl/forum/F...L/075728-5.html#p176

The whole build is in the thread I linked too... it's in the trash can.

His DD (Daily Driver) build is the reason people put their trust in the guy in the first place and you can see why. He has major skills when working on his own, but had no clue about running a business or any morals at all apparently. Pure narcissism.

When I saw the car in person, the interior was stock issue gray.

Here are some other details on the car... I was... enamored with it at the time.

I believe the interior is stock. I met Chris Dobbins back in July while over in Huntsville and I asked if it didn't have one of the custom dashes and interiors and I believe that his response was no. We met at a restaurant and I didn't go over close to the car to take a good look. Somewhere I have pictures of the car before and during the St. Pats parade, but they're not just of that car.

Wow, lot of interest. Renamed the car from Deans DD (Daily Driver) to SR88 Pegasus. Revamped the interior and carried the black and gray them inside - Mr. Mikes seats with custom logo (Thanks Will!), lower door covers, new headliner, new carpet, Grant steering wheel, shift and brake boots, trunk cover. Even has the lumbar - replaced the bags and it works. Lot's of other little things.

The wheels 18" Tecnomagnesio-Sao-Paulo and have 'Made in Italy' stamped on the back.

Here are few pictures that I have easy access to. Every time I do something to the car, I take a ton of photos, just need to run a batch job to reduce the size for easy posting.




Just got this last week and haven't installed them yet - along with a glove box.

I was also enamored with it just by the photos. Bought it sight unseen and Dean delivered it to my house (3+ hours away). Traded my first Fiero (88GT) and some cash of course. Sad to see everything turn out so bad once he started up a business.

Well I scored a rear lip today, although not as cool as that one it will do. I. Going to try to grab some Mustang louvers for the trunk instead of the scoop. I also ordered a F355 front and rear and will be adding Fiero Fiberglass GT1 Scoops and ground FX but different side skirts. I may do Celica side mirrors but not the same ones, M3 style aftermarket. My car color will be gray but much different and I'm using different wheels. This car is my obvious inspiration but I do not want to copy it completly. Some touches of carbon fiber should set it apart.

I bought a Fiero because my friends said I shouldn't.

I didn't, I super cheaped out I admit. I went with the VFiber. I'm a very cheap. In the end it may cost me more trying to fit it. Its a gamble.

The Fiero Fiberglass nose fits the car well enough, and its good and sturdy, but it has issues of its own. The shape of the mouth is asymmetrical, the slope of the top is too long and angled wrong, and overall, I think its too long. Amida's is by far the best. I've got a lot of work to do on my Fiero Fiberglass one to make it look good.

I think its a good looking car too. Everything done very tasteful and clean...all goes together well, and sits great. Only thing Id change are the wheels...im just not fond of black or dark gray wheels...just my taste.

They were custom made from a set originally for a 355 kit car. He only made three sets, but it could be redone.
