Just a few pics of some of the surfaces & edges on the front clip that Kris is trying to get all fitting perfect with each other. In additon he filled in the molding areas on the front fenders, reshaped the wheel well opening lip & is finishing off the flush mounting of the front emblem.















Anyone who says that getting all these surfaces to come out just right & fit perfectly is easy, needs to be shot.

those side markers appear to be reflective tape. I'm guessing they are a mark up of what is to come.

Once it gets back to Orlando, I will remove the original turn signals and relocate them to the headlight compartment. Thats what the opening is for in the HL... and in the old compartment I'll add some Hella driving lights.

Your photoshop of the IRM widebody rocker line is too high. It should match the line behind the front tire and not the line of the rear bumper.

Here is another one with out the GTO vents.

OPTION B v1

Either one of those photoshop vents will work and will separate #025 from #015. I think that particular style would be the first on a Fiero or at least on a choptop. For option B, try reducing the center trail ends to match the outers. Remember, your front scoops trailing ends aren't elongated beyond a certain point. There isn't a "general" rule written in stones so you do have options. So far, you're on track.

Yeah, that's IMO better and now closely matches your front vents:



The same holds true for #013. If it works for Leroy's, it should work for #025.

How about extending the elevated part of the scoop all the way back to the spoiler and actually have it exit on the back side of the spoiler. Then you could vent the decklid further back (over the rear manifold) and possibly improve rear engine compartment cooling. You could even float a thin line third brake light in the opening on the back side of the spoiler for a dual function mod. I would love to see a photoshop of this!

I know what you are talking about. I saw a picture somewhere, where the vent exit was thru the wing tail on the end... It would require modifying the wing, which I want to avoid and it would not match the hood scoop.
