Back to the rear. I cut the taillight section out from the bumper. This will be fixed as the bumper will be removable for access to the lower rear engine compartment. Now im back to some trial and error as I try to shape this in a way that my mind is set.
Open book again here.

BUT....all is not lost as I brought this CJB 88' 5sp supercharged baby home. She's a burn victim in the battery area. Not to bad of a repair. I'll so a Restoration build on this in the general area soon
Here she is Flying onto the trailer ! Who says Fieros don't fly ?!!
Almost time to drop the cradle and replace the clutch and all the brake / clutch lines / water lines.....from the stretch. I figure ill do that after mothers day.....for now i'll start building the interior back up again.
Starting the interior here. I cut pieces from flat sheets to fit into the quarter window opening. Then I just glued them together before I put a final glass layer on it. Picked up from the Fiero Store the firewall abs panels with speaker opening. I was going to mount speakers into the upper rear area but it is just to small to do so.
Feels good to see the interior come back together.
Now that the interior pieces and body panels are coming together its time to drop the cradle. A few past problems need to be fixed. 1 st off is the Clutch slipping under boost. Another is the cleaning up and simplifying the wiring harness's. Finish up some welds and primer and repaint the engine bay.....among a few other things. So...... out she comes !
Multi tasking is the best when things are apart and all over the shop ! While things are drying on the frame , started taking the engine off the cradle to find out whats up with the clutch. Headers off, separating.....
With the engine split from the tranny I could see a few issues. The Pressure plate was rubbing into the tranny housing. A couple of grooves here. The F40 Spacer seams to be alittle to thick. Ive read a few issues on the forum about this. 1800 miles on a Spec 3+ and this is what I get.
The spacer..... theres some hot spots and uneven wear, probably because of all the extra pieces to make this clutch work it wasn't perfectly symmetrical. A custom Spec Flywheel is now on the way.....no more spacers !!
