Something you will have to be careful of is the angle of approach.  If its too low you will have problems with driveways.  I already have problems with some driveways with my stock GT (body only) lowered 1.

I'd wager that front lip will be gone the first time driving over a speed bump or sidewalk to enter a parking lot. 

Will you be putting on really fat tires or wheel extenders?

Cheers, Derek

im not too worried about the front its higher then it looks in pictures and I am also very careful when it comes to speed bumps since m ysaturn is lowered too. im going to go with 8 inch wide rims (225-235 wide tires)  in the front and 10 inch wide in the rear(between 275 and 295) most likely these ones http://www.aewheel.com/eagle_alloy_wheels.cfm?id=19 with adapters i have they should fit the fenders just right

Okay, I'm speechless!!!!!!!!!!!  :o

Well, not really.  The nose doesn't fit my tastes.  That's a shitload of 'glasswork!  Keep  it up.

YESSS  Someone not sticking 24" rims on.  Stay with 15's and deep, deep dish.  Nice!

Too late, but  http://www.rqriley.com/frp-foam.htm (http://www.rqriley.com/frp-foam.htm)
I also have a Kit Car issue with an article for using signboard for a one-off design.

Nice to see it coming along...

Actually i tired that method with foam in the front since it was too flat when i originally did it. but  ididnt really like that method. etiehr way there going to be alot of sanding needed i know it looks like all body filler but once in done sanding it should show mostly fiberglass.

As for the dust it is a big problem I try to mop the garage everytime i sand.  The interior is going to be redone nothing fancy i was thing of mostly pained metal panels some autometer guages and 2 nice seats and some parts of the dash covered to prevent injuries.

They are american eagle 028 i got them at FCP in montreal (www.magsandtires.com) but teh rims arent a standard fiero pattern u will have to get adapters or change the hubs and they have a huge offset i dont think they would fit a normal fiero.

Hey It's  been a long time since I posted because life has been so busy.  From graduating from university to buying a house, finishing the garage, and building a deck, it has not left me much time to work on the fiero. But now that most of my other projects are done im going to be working more in hte garage.  

I recently purchased an alero which I will be swapping the ecotec engine into the fiero this winter.  Any tips on the swap or help with be greatly apreciated, anwyays here are some new pictures.
