    512TR BUILD Project

    Hey guys, wanted to post pics of my new project.

    I have been looking for a Good Replica project for some time, I was amazed when I found this car..
    I literally pulled it out of the weeds and the trees in the middle of nowhere...
    Specs.

    Fiero with a professional stretch,
    complete V6 drivetrain (That will change)
    complete factory interior,
    complete 512TR body kit with mirrors
    Body is just rough mounted..
    details..

    The car is very good quality, But things that need addressed are :
    Front Fender wheel wells need corrected ( they are not quite right and the wheel opening seems to be a little distorted.
    Rockers will need to be split and separated
    rear window opening needs to be corrected a little.
    Quarter windows will need work.
    and of course I will have to get involved in the windshield extension.. thats a Must.

    I will have to build all the grilles and side fins.

    I will be posting a build diary.. Im going to take my time and just enjoy the project.

    I dont know who the manufacturer of this is, any ideas?

    I would like to talk to someone about making some Moulds off this car just for replacement purposes that way if anything happens I can produce the replacement parts

    Pics when it first came out of hiding...



    Pics after getting power washed ..





    there will be many more pictures to come..

    Welcome to the party Michael;

    I am not sure the manufacturer but you can call Thomas Squires up in Calgary Alberta, for any parts you may need as he has the old CK3 moulds and can produce parts for you if you need anything. This is definitely not a CK3 car as the rockers are not separated.

    Thomas' number is 1 403 615-2476.

    As for the screen, I will have the first run in a couple weeks to show everyone and Mario (Moran4x4) also has an excellent option.

    Cheers and good luck with the build and we are all looking forward to seeing pics.
