    G28L an ExotiCarParts BUILD

    Hello all we are a shop in Denton, Texas. I had made an intro but it was deleted by the moderators.
    We are building a LP640 an 88' Fiero Formula auto with bad drive train

    Stripped rear of car and started Labeling harness

    Pulled motor and Replaced Cradle floating nuts in frame with Rodney Dickman repair kit

    Next I will be removing the fuel tank, Cleaning it, sealing it. and I will be installing an AC DELCO Corvette Fuel Pump Part# EP376

    The cradle is being powder coated as we speak and should be done tuesday.

    I am making my own custom Tubular wide-track suspension which will be powder coated as well

    New drivetrain on its way is a crate motor Series II SUPERCHARGED 3800

    More Pics coming soon!

    Anyone willing to donate parts or info would be great!

    Well I have dropped the Fuel tank today and it looks brand new inside! So I will be installing the new Corvette fuel pump as soon as it shows up in the mail.

    Also sold some of the body panels today for $160 and saying I only paid $450 for the car I only have $290 in it so far. ;D

    Im now making som custom stainless braided fuel lines.

    More to come!

    Nope! I want to focus on the swap first, then suspension, then stretch and kit. Seems simple that way.
    I will be getting alot done as fast as usps can ship.

    Ok got the corvette fuel Pump installed. Putting the tank back was NOT fun. I reloomed the harness to the pump, Installed a WIX fuel filter and I am now making custom stainless steel braided fuel lines and have orderd everything for my custom suspension. To bad I cant do much until I gt my cradel back from powder coat Hopefully It will be here tomorrow

    Well today I knocked out 5 birds with one stone. I converted my trailing links to tubular. by doing so I gained wide track +3" in the rear.
    Better launch control with no wheel hop.
    Better adjust ability in camber.
    Correct holes
    Grade 8 Bolts instead of metric 10.9
    I had to convert to standard from metric to do so, which was great because fiero knuckles are known for oblong bolt holes causing slop in suspension. So boring out the holes corrected that.
    Going to send the knuckles off to powder coat.
    Pics later!
