    Extraordinary.
    Great creativity.
    I sent you PM, for anchoring the safety belt on the B pillar
    because I have to create the window on the B pillar, and therefore moved this inking.
    Can you take some pictures.
    Thank you very much.
    Fantastic job in your car.
    Christophe.

    I made the two plastic covers, I buy 4 foot by 8 foot abs black plastic sheet. It has a smooth surface on one side and a nice textured surface on the other. I do the same as I do with sheet metal, I make a cardboard template then transfer the pattern to the plastic and cut it out. I then use a either a oven, heat gun, or small blow torch to heat the plastic and shape it into a form. I made them for my engine bay, the right covers the motor mount, and the left covers the cruise control unit. Are you going to do anything with your engine compartment Christophe? I will get you the seat belt pictures tonight.

    a couple more pics the sheet metal is cut, Bent and roughed in, Now on to drilling and tapping the mounting holes. I will use machine allen head screws to mount them. I still have to build the sheet metal piece for the rear of the compartment, It will cover the rear section out to the tail lights.

    Thank you for the explanation of black plastic, it's very clever of you.


    For my engine compartment, I will draw inspiration from your. it's very clean and very well done and well explained.


    But before we got there, I still work on the outside.
    My engine compartment opens with just the centrale grid, I'll try to do as you open the rear hood for in full, with hinges BMW E38 like you, I saw the pieces in Germany.
    I'll ask your advice.
    Thank you for the images for high mounting safety belt.


    Thank you for all Mickael .

    Best regards


    Christophe

    I love how clean this is looking but I have a question if I may.

    It looks as though you are using PVC piping, is that just for mock up reasons or are you planning on painting the pipes to make them look metal?

    Sounds like a plan to me.

    Keep up with the pics, watching the progress of this build with great interest.

    Good luck.

    Here is a pic of my car when I first got it, and how its looking now. It is really taking shape, As you can see I have installed a 1998 sebring windshield, Modified the hood where it meets the windshield and installed rocker panels, Re shaped front fender openings and so on. I have very detailed pics for the sebring windshield install. I will post a seperate thread for the Fiero to sebring windshield conversion. I am working on the engine bay and bodywork now.
