so im getting ready to do the stretch and to cut the top of the fiero. before i cut the top tho i heard that u need to do the reinforcements firts.
but i cant find any links or pics that show where to do it from.
does any one know of any good links?


Look at these two links:

Half way down the thread they are doing a VW sedan, they did a lot more cutting than you are doing but you will get the idea.  Main thing for yours will be to brace the doors.

Here is another example so you can see the bracing.  Do a google search on "Chop Top how to or bracing"

I wasnt sure to start a build diary here since i have one in madmechanics.. Since i am, i am just going to do copy and past so dont be mad.. lol..
This is when i picked up my kit..




The engine im going to be using.


The body at the body shop getting straighten up since it got bumped up pretty good all the way down from mexico. I got the kit from a guy by el DF. mexico city.
Lamborghini Aventador Steering wheel. OEM.


and now this is me experimenting with carbon fiber.



Now i am just waiting for my custom engine harness to be done by fiero king and waiting on some parts for my custom Reventon Instrument Cluser.
I got a pc and lcd for the cluster. It will look like the original reventon cluster
