Agreed. Very disappointing the way it has been ruined by spam.

well i messed with the rear body and hung the doors and put the front end i am going to use and i think it is going to look good and it gives me a wide body for just $300 . i have 245 on the rear but i need to go allot wider it is looking like about 13 inch wide tier and the right wheels and i am playing with the idea of a rear wing but if i use a fiero wing i will need to widen it out so i will need another wing to cut a section out and grafted into the other wing

I have come to the conclusion that i need to pay someone to do the paint and finish body work i can get the rear section bonded on and i can even get the body work close or maybe even right but i don't have the talent or facility's to paint the car so i am saving up to have this painted and i will try to get the body work as best as i can

today i work on the fiero and looks and i am done blending on the rear roof pillars out sides as i used black paint to show any high or low spots and it looks good now to make it be the best it can be when i get the rest of the body work done i will use high build primer surfacer then block sand it all depending on how perfect you want it is how many times you you prime it and sand it some do it once and some do multiple prime and block sanding

I love reading this thread. Thank you so much for the updates. How has the Wrap been coming? I know that the chrome style wraps are some of the hardest too do. You have to have things really perfect and clear of all dust. How is it fairing?

i have not wrapped it yet as i am finishing body work and am not sure about wrapping it i have the chrome wrap but i also have bright red paint so i keep going back and forth in my head on it . today i received my blower pulley back from carbinite carbon metal coating they put a textured carbon coating on it so the belt gets a great grip now i think i need to send the crank pulley to them to stop all belt slip . I know today i started the engine up and ran it with the new pulley and hit the throttle and the rpms just jump to 7000 RPM's

well i have found that the crank pulley is where the belt is slipping so now i must send that in to have it treated so it gets a better grip i will tell them to treat for maximum grip . it is kinda funny when you see a higher boost from the larger pulley due to it is not slipping as bad
