Lol no scam running, eBay has that promotional thing going on where you can list a vehicle for free. Out of curiosity, I listed mine. If I get what I want I'll let it go, if I don't I'll keep it.

Jay, what was the trick with getting the Watson body to fit onto the Fiero chassis?  I noticed that the inner doors might have been shortened but the outter skins are not unless you trimmed on the ends of the panel.  I'm assuming that you needed to tear out the Fiero front firewall and your master cylinder is tucked up under the front fender?  However you did it, it's turning out pretty nice and everything is coming together well.  I'm curious to see what you do with your batwings since a roadster has a different version that actually lay's a little differently and is a little longer diagonally.  Are you going with a roadster windshield or a coupe?

Thanks,

Chris

Well what's your WB? 104" or 105"?

The inner doors weren't shortened. If you remember, I did cut them vertically to fit it where I needed it. All while not cutting the pillars.

No and the master cylinder is pretty close to the fender but it's not tucked.

Well I have a coupe quarter panel with coupe batwings. They fit just fine, I may have to modify them to fit perfectly though.

I'm going with a coupe windshield. Thx for the compliments.

I’m so glad you are posting again Jay, I really love the way your car is coming out.

Thx, I know you received your body a while ago, making any headway? Post some pics, anything is better than nothing.

Awesome build Jayso. I noticed some hang in the windows when the glass is all the way down, trying to roll it up. I can bet money that if you widen the mounting clamps on the track(where the window clamps to), it won't bind up so bad. Doing so would support the window from wobbling in the tracks. Keep up the great work.

Thx for the input, I'll have that little kink sorted out before I permanently bond on the skins.

Just got the passenger door glass fitted. Besides that, not much going on here.

Great work Jay as always.  Love the pics and videos but I really don't think that fingernail polish is your color,

I would go with dark blue or maybe ....

kidding

You're prob right, my fingers are normally dark blue from all the bruises I receive from building anyhow.

No.. I sure havent painted yet.  Now that I have the car based in the black filler primer, I will take some time to fit the interior and get it all done.   I want to make sure that everything fits and not modifications are needed that will interfere with any exterior work.   When I am satisfied with that interior fit.....I will block down the filler and put her in paint.  Shouldn't be too long.   I'm really pumped up.   Finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. 

I just saw a tiny crack of daylight at the end of that tunnel for my build.

Is that real Roadster glass? Sure looks like it.
Nice 80lb. poppers there!!

You bet it is a real Murcie glass. I want to give a big thanks to you for providing technical assistance on wiring the doors!
