      These are HIGH PRIORITY ITEMS! (Updated 11/13)
Both of the vertical support pieces that go behind the aero nose and bolt to the front impact beam.
The impact absorber is good, but the plastic braces are bad. Need both, ASAP...

The lower metal shields should be in good shape, but if anyone has them in GREAT shape, please ship them up as well... Never hurts to have spares on hand.

Other items needed are: Prayers and well wishes.


I have an idea to help out member 2.5fierose a.k.a Tyler Shipman. Please reference the thread below for the story. Please P.M. me for the idea that I have and how you can help, as I would like Tyler to not know what I am doing. Thank you.

Some music to set the mood...

      Hi everyone,

I'm putting an official list together here of parts needed for Tylers car to get it restored to as nice as possible in the soonest time posssible. Any people from Minnesota that would be able to help Tyler out mechanically would be a GREAT help! If anyone has a nice clean part that is in good condition on this list, please let me know. Right now I have a P.M. to Tyler to get his address, and I will not post it in here, but once I get it you can P.M. me and I will give it to you so you know where to send your parts. I want this done at no expense to Tyler, so please help if you have something you can donate towards this effort.

Thank you all in advance for your help. Let's help Tyler out!!!!!

      I wish I had some GT parts, but I might be able to lend a hand repair it. It will be about a 3 to 4 hour drive. I'll talk to my twin (1984redsc) and see if he would be willing as well.
I might have a set of barely used injectors from a Buick Century 3300 V6. I wonder if they will work.

      Any help you can give is excellent! I spoke to my wife today and we would like to fly out for a long weekend and help him once I get home, just have to see what our schedules are like. Also today, I am acquiring a parts car at my house, so I'll see what I can come up with once I get home and rip the car apart. Thank you to all that have responded to this thread and for the PM's. Let's show Tyler that we won't leave PFF family members behind!

      I have a set of dark gray/ light gray velour seats. They are in really good condition but they have some stains on the light gray seat part. If someone wants to send the tail light lenses, I think I can do a decent job of polishing them. I practiced on a really scratched up lens tonight and it came out pretty well.

An opportunity has presented itself to me in the form of round trip airfare for one member who would like to help Tyler but cannot afford the airfare to do it. This is on a first come first serve basis. Please PM me if you fit this category.


lynxer (nick@campuscoffee.net) MSG #22, 11-01-2009 10:08 AM
      Hey guys!!!!! wow I just read this topic you guys are really stepping up!

I will talk to Tyler today and see where he thinks we should send the parts. We will have to work on the car either in Detroit Lakes (my friend's body shop) or at my house just a little out of town. I will definitly try to get some pictures of the car up by tomorrow and make a close list. As far as a build day or work day I saw the day of the 21st thrown out there. That would be absolutly awesome if we could get that going that soon, but we will need to make sure to have everything in line that day so we can really tear into it. Lets see what we get pulled together this week and decide. By the looks of it you guys are ready to make it happen.

Someone asked about setting up a paypal donation system. I don't really know how to do that? I will look into it more today. I do have a paypal account, but I think I will probably make a new one just for Tyler.


One thing that I see we overlooked is the Headliner in the car. I have recovered them in the past, but can't say I am a pro! Any tips tricks or ideas? I am going to see if the auto parts store in Detroit Lakes will donate a little.

Once again thanks guys! Lets keep this ball rolling!


Hulki U. My-BFF (adweigle@hughes.net) MSG #23, 11-01-2009 10:25 AM
      Parts list updated.

Thanks for the response, Nick. I sent you a PM back regarding this. As for the headliner, it could be as simple as new foam and material, but we really need to find out what the headliner board condition is. I know Pep Boys sells a headliner refinishing kit if the board is okay.

lynxer (nick@campuscoffee.net) MSG #26, 11-01-2009 11:19 AM
      I talked to Tyler this morning and we are going to have the parts sent to my house. Someone will always be around (Tyler's family is really busy as you can imagine) and the car will most likely be at my house soon.

The shipping address for any parts is:

Nick Butze
21686 Black Beauty Ln.
Detroit Lakes, MN 56501

Lets keep this going guys!

Thank you so much Tyler is really excited to get that fiero in shape


Hulki U. My-BFF (adweigle@hughes.net) MSG #27, 11-01-2009 11:22 AM
      I already had the turn signals shipped directly to his house. So please inform his family to be on the lookout for them. They went out Priority mail.

lynxer (nick@campuscoffee.net) MSG #28, 11-01-2009 11:40 AM
      Yeah that's no problem I will run over and pick them up when they come in Thank you for the turn signals!!! When bigger pieces come in they will most likely need to be signed for and the hospital Tyler is at is about 50 miles away from home. He might get to come home on Tuesday!

Thanks guys!

Where would they be landing? If it is in minneapolis, maybe 1984whitesc could pick them up and give them a ride if needed. If it were closer to me, I could give them a ride as well. Just trying to help :P

I'm pretty sure Minneapolis is where they would be landing. They can only fly United with this deal, so it's anywhere that United has inbound and outbound flights to. Thanks, Dave! That helps immensely!!!!

      o.k. I have a set of GT Rockers that I took off my car. They are in great shape except my car is a choptop. I think the inside of the door area part have been cut for the chop. I can send them if you think it will help or if it would be better than what he already has. They would need paint. If you want to see pics of them first just let me know.

JohnWPB MSG #34, 11-01-2009 08:54 PM
      Here are a couple of posts from the original thread, I have copied into here for those just monitoring this thread:

- I just fired off an email to Mr. Mike asking if he can help with a pair of seat covers for the car.

- I was wondering how to set up a PayPal account, or some other way for donations to be made, as a way for forum members to make donations to help cover parts and supplies that no one has on hand. (Could be used to cover the cost of the paint mentioned in a previous post). I am ready to make a donation as soon as something is in place.

- I have contacted the FieroStore to see if there is any assistance that they can provide.

- I would like to contact some of the local news stations to see if the are interested in doing a Human Interest story on this.

If anyone else coordinating something, please email me at JohnWPB -AT- Gmail dot com. This way we can tackle it together, and keep everyone updated.

      I have a good headliner, its gray and has been recovered. The back of it isn't perfect. It doesn't sag at all, looks smooth and new, but has a small spray of glue on it, not noticeable in the car. I would gladly give it to him, but cannot afford to ship it, please PM me if this is needed, and maybe we can figure out a way to get it to him.

87antuzzi (krisantuzzi@vzw.blackberry.net) MSG #38, 11-02-2009 01:17 AM

pontiackid86 (phllyracer@aol.com) MSG #39, 11-02-2009 01:35 AM
      Well I want to see about what I can do about flying out there or greyhound to help out with this. $ is going to be the deciding factor in the end, time I have (unemployed) I also want to see about what I can do as far as getting all the parts he needs that iIcan get from a junk yard. I might be able to manage a rear window and a bunch of other things. My local yard has about 6 fieors in it right now that I can get parts for cheap out of. I think it would be a good learning experiance for me (not that I dont know what im doing) and would also be able to help another fiero enthusiest with his dream of getting his fiero back on the road. I Think thats the least he could ask in this situation. Again ill make the trip Ill stay a few days get a bunch of stuff done. Plus in the cold I go into my insomneac stage where I can stay up long hours. Well see what happens i have to see what kinda funds I can scrape together.

It looks like a build day/weekend is shaping up for the weekend of the 21st. Right now I have an email to Tyler's family, and a PM to Tyler to make sure that weekend will be okay for them. I am waiting for a response back. I also have sent my second email to the Fiero Store now, and am still waiting for a response to see if they will help us out with the fascia. We'll see if they step up or not.

A question has been raised about where members flying in would stay. If there is anyone who would be willing to put up a few members, please let me know, and I will put you in contact with them. Or if someone could do a little research for me on what lodging is available nearby for the members to stay at a decent rate, that would be really helpful.

I also want to publicly thank all of you for stepping up to help Tyler. I know him as little as all of you do, but I want to see this young man sit in a nice running, nice looking Fiero. And I am not going to stop on this until that goal is achieved. Thank you all!

Andy

Will they be landing in Minneapolis? Are we talking for this Nov 21st weekend or later?
I live too far south of Minneapolis for it to be effective, but in Minneapolis there are many hotels. Along interstate 94 there are hotels as well.
To stay up by Frazzee , in Detroit Lakes not far from Frazee, are many hotels, here is a link:

      What does Tyler have for Tuneage in his Fiero?
I have a nice Alpine CDA-9851 unit (MP3, Motorized Tilt Face and whatnot) to put in..
If someone wants to donate funds for speakers, and maybe a four channel amp, I could do a nice install for him. I would need the appropriate power and audio cabling.

I could even build a quick sub box for under the dash. Give him a rocking system with a 4 channel and dual or single channel sub amp, or a 5 channel amp.

Anyone want to donate to the cause for that? Not as nice as making it 100% functional, but would be a nice upgrade.

Sweet. Being a GT, it has the 4x10s in the dash, and the 4x6s in the B-Pillars. If at all possible, I'd love to set him up with some good quality tunes. The Alpine I have wasn't cheap when it came out, and other than a minor scratch on the faceplate, is in great condition and was only installed for a few months.

Not trying to be picky, but if I can amp this for him with a good 8 inch sub, we could really rock it out.

      UPDATE:

Ok, I was just contacted Barbie Porter, from local News Paper, Frazee-Vergas Forum. They had done a story about his situation a couple of weeks back, but knew nothing at all of the "Fiero Project". She was very excited to do a story on how everyone is coming together to help. I gathered all the known info from both threads, as well as info from the email I received from Andy. I also gave her Andy's (Forum Coordinator) email address, as well as Nick's (Local coordinator).

Hopefully this will draw more attention to the cause, and bolster some more people to help.


Ok, the seats are covered! (Sorry... baaaddd. punn) I just got off the phone a few minutes ago with Mr. Mike. He said he would gladly help for such a worthy cause!
I realize these are covers, but they are MR. MIKE'S COVERS For anyone new here, not familiar with Mr. Mike's seat covers, here is just one of the many style's and color combination's available:




When they are installed, the seats look like the were upholstered in a factory. I personally feel this is a better option that seats from another donor car, as no matter how good of shape they may be in, the material is still 23 years old. That and just the fact of trying to get 2 seats shipped in is a shipping nightmare. Lastly, there are so many styles and color combination to choose from for a real customized look.

I guess what is needed now, is what color and style seat covers to use.

      We could add a bit to the seats..

How about we "upgrade" his seats to Speaker seats, and eliminate the 4x6s in the B-Pillars. Then, while the seats are apart for upholstery, we can swap in some good quality 4" speakers... Something that will last a while yet.

Good.

Get photos under the front hood for me (Headlight motors and whatnot), interior radio/HVAC area, seats, center console, headliner...
Does it have power locks? Power trunk release? I would assume yes, as it is a GT.

Get a photo of the rear glass as well. I need to know if it is a rear defrost or not.

Frazee Auto Body and Glass has agreed to install the rear window and urethane it into place for us.

EDIT: Karen from Frazee Glass called me back. She spoke with the owner of the shop, Dave, and he has agreed to donate all labor and materials in order to install a new rear window in Tyler's car. We need to provide the rear glass, and he will put it in. We just have to let them know in advance as the install will take approximately three hours.

Not trying to be picky, but if I can amp this for him with a good 8 inch sub, we could really rock it out.



You speek my language when it comes to car audio dude. I have alpine in all my cars except for the speekers in my fiero.

I always found that the speekers in the b pillers made it sound better with the seat speekers. I have this setup in my GT.

In my case, the B-Pillar speakers fire directly into my ears. Especially the left side. Sounds horribly unbalanced, and very harsh on the ears.

I have the seat speakers now, and absolutely LOVE them...

In addition, the Come-on-In hotel a few miles outside of Frazee has agreed to a "Group buy" on double bed rooms for people wanting to help out with this.

I spoke with Jackie there, and she agreed to knock the price from 109 a night to 77 a night for anyone looking to participate in the Fiero event.

I specifically asked about the November 20/21/22 weekend (as I saw it mentioned earlier in the thread). She says they are normally not busy then.

What do you guys/gals say?
I need a list of people willing to head up there for that weekend to see what kind of damage we can do. Once I know how many people will be going up, we can call Jackie and get some reservations set.

I am willing to share a room.

      If I had a headliner, seat skins, and the necessary car audio supplies, I could do the interior updates/repairs in a day, or less. Anyone want to step up on these?
In addition, I am really amped (pun intended) to be able to toss a decent sound system in this car for Tyler..

While not required, my goal is a set of front components (5 1/4), rear 4" speakers for the seats, or 4" speaker plates for the B-Pillars (again, I personally prefer the speaker seats, but the B-Pillars will work), and an 8 or 10" subwoofer in the passenger side under the dash. I can build the sub box, just like mine. It will fit in the stock opening, and be carpeted, hanging down in the front of the dash a small amount.

I'd also need a 4 channel amp for the main speakers, and a single or bridgeable amp for the subs. Wiring, blocks and all. I can provide the Alpine head unit, but can't provide much more than that due to my own finances.

Rattle can. primer Black. But only the front half!

That's a good question, though. I guess if time is a big factor, it might have to be something a bit less than perfect. Maybe somebody has all the tools to do a good paintjob and can bring them with? With all of us there, we could tape off the car and a garage in minutes!

I will call him when I get off work tonight.

      I just got back from Tyler's place and I am uploading pictures now. The car is actually in better shape than what we have anticipated. It still needs work, but Tyler has done work to it since the last time I saw it.

He does have the side skirts on the Passenger side (need to be painted)

The back windo is NOT broken (but the windsheild is cracked)

The drivers side "fastback" window is cracked (that is what tyler was talking about) It is absolutly great Frazee glass is stepping up to help!!!! We will need them for the windsheild

The interior is dirty, but ok

The headliner looks/feels worthy to be re wrapped

The dash has a little chunk eaten out of it. Not sure what to do there (see pics)

The motor did fire up, but does have a miss as we have talked about

Needs windsheild wiper

Front bumper (a little beyond fixing as it isn't just cracked, because it is sagging from being left broken and really just needs to be replaced)

Rear spoiler needs to be re painted

rear tail light lens needs to be replaced

carpet is in rough shape, but with some good shampooing and a set of floor mats it should be fine

More will come to me as I look at the pictures again, but that is what I have for now boyz!











more pics coming.......

      Dosent look as bad as i had pictured. I think this is somthin we could tackel pretty easley. Ill see what i can possabley do about 1/4 windows. I can also install the windshield.
And i cal also pull that whole interior out in about an hour and clean everything up. I need to see what is going to happen with this dashboard i have as i have already promised it to a friend of mine but if he does not need it i will gladley bring it with me and install it.

I might also be able to supply the taillight not to sure which side is good havent seen them since my last inspection.

All,

Pre-booked family plans prevent me from particapating on the re-build, but I would be willing to donate a dash and trunk carpet. The carpet has a paint spot along the bottom but is a lot cleaner and better condition then the oil stained one in the picture.

I would need someone to pickup. Anybody flying in would be 3 to 4 freeway miles out of the way on the way up to Frazee.

We are looking for speakers, maybe an amplifier to round out the sound system. I don't know what Tyler listens to, but I want to install a good quality system that has the ability to rock him out of the car...

In my car, I have 6 1/2" in the doors, with tweeters in the dash. And a 10" sub mounted in the stock sub location. I am powering everything with a dedicated amplifier...
I'd love to set Tyler up with some 5 1/4" in the dash, or possible some quality Kenwood 4x10s that I can amp. Upgrade the rear 4x6" speakers with some 4" plates, and amp those as well, or install speaker seats and upgrade those speakers to 4" matched sets on an amp.

I can build a sub box in a short period of time, and carpet it to mount in the stock location, just like my setup. It would be perfect for an 8" with a dedicated amp.

I can find Amps on Craigslist all day long for good prices, I just don't have the funds to jump on some of them.

I feel so helpless over here and that I can't even get the Fiero Store to respond back to my emails. I'm getting kind of dissapointed. I am also sending the Fiero Warehouse an email to see if maybe they would be willing to donate a set of GT Fastback quarter windows for Tyler. I will let you know their response. Synthesis, thank you also for getting that body shop to chip in, and the work on the hotel! Excellent news! If I could ask, someone please take plenty of pictures so I can see how this goes. As it looks right now, my wife and I, as well as katatak will be flying out there shortly after I get home in January, and we can perform some work there as well. This is going way better and faster than I expected. I can't wait to see the look on Tyler's face when he drives this awesome car around after the work is complete. Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to this.

I would say since a mild restoration is being done, keep them red. But that's just my opinion. Any other opinions, or Tyler's friends have any suggestions?

      Hey guys!

This morning I stopped by the parts store in Detroit Lakes (Riverside Auto Value) and got a set of front brake pads, plugs, wires, cap/rotor, oil and oil filter all donated! They also had a bunch of stuff lined up for Tyler's benefit auction on the 15th! So I have that stuff kind of covered! I am pretty sure we have a nice garage to work in. It is a little out of town, but a very nice shop and the owner knows Tyler and his family well (not completly 100% yet, but 97%) Also have a couple of lines out there for body work. It is coming together! Tyler is going home today, but with the care of Hospice...

Time is of the essence and this car needs to get done soon. Everyone is really coming together and right now it looks like we will get it taken care of.

One thing I haven't seen talked about a whole lot is the Headliner. Does anyone know what to do there?

I am planning on going to get the car this weekend and giving it a good clean up and more inspection.

I will also try to see what the deal is with the power window on the Passenger's side.

Thanks you everyone!!!!! Lets keep this ball rolling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Andrew:

Sorry that it took me a couple of days to get back to you. I was on vacation last week and I'm trying my best to get caught up. I didn't see your email until late yesterday afternoon.

Thank you for bringing Tyler's story to our attention. I spent some time researching Tyler's situation and presenting it to my associates. Tomorrow we will be mailing a gift certificate for the discounted value of a front bumper (including shipping) to the bank that is accepting donations on Tyler's behalf. This way, Tyler can use the gift certificate for a bumper or whatever else he might need.

Please extend our thanks to the restoration team and everyone else who sent gifts. I'm sure that the finished product will give Tyler a much needed smile.

Please let us know if there is anything else that we can do to help.

Regards,
Matt
The Fiero Store - The World's Largest Source of Fiero Parts


The Fiero Store has really stepped up to the plate, as did Mr. Mike and all other vendors out there who are donating. Thank you to all of you, only the Fiero community could come together like this.

Nick, please let Tyler's family know that this gift certificate is coming, it is for the full discounted price of the front bumper from them, or as they said, can be used for whatever Tyler might want to get from there.

      It sounds like the weekend of the 20/21st is on.

Now...

If I have everything needed for the following, I can do all of it myself, or with a little assistance.

I can handle the headliner. Supplies needed: 3M Spray Glue and Headliner Material. I can get the material here, but do not have the funds to do so.
Since the B-Pillar trim has to come out for the headliner, that is the time to replace the rear speakers.

Stereo system. Speaker replacements. Front 4x10" and rear 4x6". I do not have speakers, but it is probably a safe bet they will all need to be replaced.
If anyone wants to donate speakers or the funds for speakers, I would take them. If you donate speakers, please donate new. Kenwood and/or Pioneer are preferred. I want the system to last him for some time.

I will be installing an Alpine CDA-9851 CD Player with a motorized flip face. This unit support front, rear and sub pre-amp outs, so I would love to amp the system and add a sub. That will depend on financial or equipment input from people as well. I have in mind to install an 8" sub under the dash. I can handle building the box.
I need a sub (speaker only) and 2 channel bridgeable amp rated for the sub.
I am in touch with a local vendor in Detroit Lakes to see if they would be willing to provide equipment/supplies to assist with the sound system and/or alarm system.

I can handle the seats and reupholstering them. I have the pliers and hog rings needed to do both seats. If I have the seat skins on hand, I can handle the seats the same day as the headliner and speakers.

I have also contacted a local detail shop to Frazee MN to see if they would be willing to donate labor towards cleaning the vehicle and engine for Tyler.

Hulki, please send me their phone numbers.

TY for the offer. I figure I can just recover it when I am up there. It will save shipping costs, and be done in less than a day.

I may have room in my Fiero for one more. I also need to split a room with someone, as I won't have the funds to cover the entire room myself.

ALSO! I need a list of people who will be there for the weekend. I need to call the hotel and make reservations for how many people and rooms. If you want to share a room, then let that be known...

PM sent. Also, since the price of the bumper and shipping is now covered by the Fiero Store, anyone who wanted to donate money, please PM those on here that have parts to send, but needed money to ship the parts. Here is the list of people I know of that need help with shipping:

87antuzzi - upper intake and valve covers

I would need someone to pickup. Anybody flying in would be 3 to 4 freeway miles out of the way on the way up to Frazee.


Jeff


Can someone pick up the dash and carpet from Jeff? The carpet will probably not be needed since White Spyder is supplying one, but it never hurts to have the extra one there just in case.

Also, those who need a ride from the airport should post in here so 1984whitesc can gauge how many there will be. I think I have covered all questions for now. Please let me know if I missed something.

      I don't know if I can fit the dash in the passenger seat of my car... If I can, I can bring it. Otherwise, I will have room for one passenger in my Fiero.
The carpet I can bring as well. I PMed GTGeff about it already, and I am waiting for a message back.

I did not see anything about a Paypal to donate for those who can't help in any other way...

I am willing to put my Paypal up here for everyone to send to if they would like. I have a Paypal card, and can use it on-site as a credit card for purchases and supplies.
I can provide a running balance as we go.

synssins@yahoo.com

If you donate, send it as a gift. All donations will be applied towards Tyler's Fiero to restore and improve upon it.

Make it engraved if you would. They look better.

Standard red should be suitable for now I would think.

I saw on Tyler's care page that Tyler is a Packers fan. Just a thought, it wouldn't match the rest of the car, but maybe paint the parts Packer colors? The lower surface green and the raised surface gold. Does anyone else like that idea?

      I think that would be a great idea. I am sure he would love it.

I am coming from WI, so the air port really isn't to far out of the way for me. I know so far I have one other passenger, so that leaves three other places. You will have plenty of room in my impala. Let me know the time when you guys arrive.

Yes. Powdercoat the valve covers and the upper...

If you have a middle, powder coat that as well if you could...

If you intend to do Packers colors, make the middle intake yellow, and the upper green with yellow... Will offset it nicely.
Otherwise, silver powder coat for the middle, and stock red for the top.

Also:

I spoke with Dennis at Norseman Auto Detailing in Detroit Lakes.. Dennis will take the car and have a full interior/exterior detail done on it, this includes carpeting and the dash and whatnot, as well as an engine cleaning for us. Dennis has agreed to do it for free, but needs the car at the shop for a while.

I'd like to get the car over there for a day in the middle of a week, possibly next week. This will clean the interior for us, clean the engine a bit for us to work on.

I just got off the phone with Wold's RV Sales just South of Detroit Lakes.

He needs to have a pow wow with a few people before he can make a decision.

I asked him if it would be possible to rent or borrow an RV or two to park nearby for the purposes of a place to crash.

Hey.. questions!

If we are having powder coating and paint done, are there folks available to reinstall things when they come back from coating/painting?

I may be able to head back up to Frazee either Dec 12th or 19th weekend.
There are many hands in this and I am not sure what will be needed when, but if anyone else can get up there again, and we are needed, I'm in.

You could maybe borrow a larger vehicle?
Could it fit from your dash to backseat between the seats longways front to back in the car?

Will you be up on the weekend of the 20th of November?
I'd like to be able to do the seats, the headliner, and the audio system in one shot, since all of that has to come out in one shot anyway.
So.. We need to get Mr Mike's seat skins up there ASAP.
We need to get headliner material and spray glue. (Can you provide those 2.5?)
We need audio... I am waiting to hear back from a local audio company to see if they are able to help us.

If we can get the intake and valve covers before that weekend, we can get those in as well.

I can put the dash in at the same time as we do the interior stuff, as I want to be able to pull the existing dash to install security/remote start if at all possible.
I asked mmeyer if he had any spare Auto shift knobs in grained grey leather..

I still suggest just keeping it stock colors for now and sanding the surface areas that are normally bare.
It will be good for the time being in my opinion.

Yeah, that would work, My twin and are small people, so it might fit. Duh why didn't I think of that lol.
and if not, I am sure I can work something out. If I can fit an entire decklid in my trunk I am sure I could fit a dash in my trunk I not really familiar with how big a dash is.

No. I think we should just go in with seat covers that look similar to what is in there, but add the Fiero logo to them for good measure.

I can't make that decision, but I am sure he would already have a set of those laying around.

      Guys,

A new windshield with warranty is only 100 bucks...
Is the windshield actually cracked/broken?

Frazee Auto Glass can order the windshield, have it in next day or so, and slap it in for us. No charge for the labor, just cover the cost of the glass...
I know this, because I just spoke with Karen again.

The speakers will definitely do. Let's see what we have for a dash from Geff, as his may be the correct color. Bring the material up with you, and let's knock this car out in a day... There will be plenty left to do, but we will have made a huge improvement.

Let me know if you got it. Use it for the windshield and anything else. I'd like to thank everyone for all they are doing for Tyler. I tried everything I could to be free to come help on the 21st but I just can't swing it. I will go with Hulki in January if we can work it all out. Can't find the words to describe it - Fiero folks are the greatest.

Find out what the shipping will cost and I'll see what I can do to help cover the shipping costs. My 2 cents on the paint. Clean them up real good and give them a nice coat of factory red paint. Thanks for all your efforts.

Chris,

The dash will not fit in the passenger side of your Fiero. I had to take out the sunroof to get it home. You would be better off strapping it down on the rear deck lid.

The dash is in very good shape & clean inside and out. I think out of an 86/87 GT. Two-tone black over dark gray. Passenger side vent corner slight damage with repair attempt. I could get a photo if necessary.

The trunk carpet very clean except for lower bottom corner has latex paint spill about the size of a 1 gallon paint can.

I am looking a my schedule fpr that weekend. I might be willing to do one-way parts & passenger haul in my covered F150 extended cab.

Later,
Jeff

Jeff, that dash will be perfect. It will be much better than his existing dash. The carpet will be fine as well, and latex paint will come out with goo-gone and some elbow grease. (At least, it does on clothing.)...

I have a new in box amp that would work for the 8" Sub, it is an Ultra Linear and is two channel that can be bridged. I have one just like it currently running a 10" sub which is rated 200 w rms, 600 w max. If this will work I will bring it with. It is approx 10" long don't know if that is too big for you to fit?

That is PERFECT! You ROCK!

I am currently sourcing a 4 channel for the four speakers, and the supplies to put them in, as well as a sub. The system should rock when we finish it.

I will get started on a sub box this weekend, and try to get my hands on an 8", or possibly a 10" depending on if I can find a shallow mount.

As for the windshield:

Thanks to several donations, we now have the funds to cover the costs of a brand new warrantied windshield for Tyler! Frazee Auto Body and Glass has agreed to donate their time, labor and installation supplies to remove the existing windshield and install the new one for us.
The windshield is covered.

The headliner is covered. Kev will be bringing materials and spray glue for the headliner. We can do the headliner on-site the same day as we do the rest of the interior.

JohnWPB and I had a good conversation last night, and in an effort to make sure we have the supplies on hand for the event, we went ahead and chose the seats covers that we agreed looked best for the interior of a GT with gray interior. We chose dark gray outer panels and light gray inner panels. We also chose to add the GT logo to the seats. I claim full responsibility for this decision, as I want those seat skins on hand when we get up there.
Tyler should be quite pleased with the results, because even stock good condition skins are 10 times better than what he currently has in there.

Note: These are all the same seat style and color. Different lighting is what makes the difference.

      I called Frazee Auto Body and Glass and spoke with Karen again.

They discounted the price of the windshield to a flat $100.00. I ordered it today, which leaves $21.96 in the coffers for donations.

When the glass comes in, Karen will call me back, and we will schedule a time to get the car into the shop. This will allow the urethane to set up before we start doing hardcore work on the car.

Nick picked the car up this morning and took it over to Norseman's.
Nick! Do me a favor and get photos of Dennis and his crew posing with the Fiero... I want photos showing them standing with the car for this thread!

Thank you.

      I just spent the better portion of 30 minutes or so on the phone with Bobby aka Fieroguy123.

KEV contacted the Fiero Warehouse, so right now, it is a race to see who responds first. Bobby's friend (we left a voice mail for), or Fiero Warehouse.

The sail panels that Bobby showed me are spectacular... Looking at getting something similar, but with GT on them. Tinted would look amazing on the white Fiero.


I am trying to contact a friend who lived in Detroit Lakes the last time I spoke with her. She tints windows professionally. Would love to have the windows done on the car.

*Itemized costs:
100.00 Windshield

Total balance in Paypal, 121.96.

Keep up the good work! We'll have this car rocking before too much longer.
I will stop and pick up a Distributor O-Ring, as I am not sure when it was replaced last. Since we will most likely be playing with the intake/valve covers, that would be the time to put the O-Ring in and retime the car.

      Hey guys! I just got back to school. I hung out with Tyler this morning for a while. He is at home and in pretty good spirits. He is talking and seems to be pretty comfortable (minace the "I swear this rental hospital bed is from the 40's") haha but otherwise he is pretty happy and amazed with what is going on! I told him about all you guys flying and driving up he thought that was pretty amazing! He has been watching the thread here and is very very happy.

I brought the car over to Noresman's and talked to Dennis. Turns out when my dad worked there (20 years ago) he hired Dennis! haha that was pretty funny and cool. Dad must have made a good hire The car is over at Noresman's now and I told them they can have it over the weekend and as long as they need it really. We really appreciate them helping out. So that is taken care of.

Can't thank you guys more!


One thing I did notice is tha plate that goes around the radio and heat controls is cracked. It is silver and probably 14"x10" ish idk something like that you guys probably know what I mean.

I also had some fun driving the car! haha wow that is a sweet ride! Now I see why you guys love them so much! I had that se (I think 85) with a 4 cyl. and it wasn't anything to special, but wow this GT is cool!

Jay Tyler's dad said something like "wow all of these guys are comin' up to help and donating all these parts? That is wild" Tyler responds "That's what happens when you have a sweet car"

Sweet on the tint. I spoke with the shop up here as well.. At this stage, we have a bunch of people able to provide similar or identical things, so if one falls through, we have a backup. I love the way this works.
Indianapolis to MN is easy.

The most direct route is up through Chicago. Directions to Frazee are here.

If you want to paint them up, by all means. Were you able to find the door piece or no? Infinite Will has a door piece if you do not.
Also, did you speak with the audio guy? Even used but working would be great.

I'll also bring the ground fx with me. I have a spray booth in my garage so i can paint the ground fx before hand if need be, or should I just prep them and leave the paint to the body shop?


That is Awesome!!!!!! On thing if you are going to paint the ground fx make sure to get extra paint then we can use that to do the rest of the gray that needs to be done so it all matches. We are kind of waiting on what we will do for a body man so lets hold off a bit before you do that...

I just got back from Indy 2 weeks ago!!!!! National FFA Convention! Yeah I was one of those b**t**dS that made you late for work and made extra lines everywhere in the 50 mile radius! haha it is easy, but I will advise you to stay out of Chicago. It is easy to bypass and well worth it. Go up to Pioria, IL to Rockford and then there is a major freeway cut accross over to WI Then just stay on the Interstate and hit Minneapolis. its a solid 16hrs, but not to bad!

      Sweet!!! chris cook just called me back and he's happy to donate the sail panels!! Would we like anything printed in them? GT? SE? He's going to custom make them just for tyler. Let me kow asap because he's cuttin the lexan as we speak!

Synthesis (synssins@gmail.com) MSG #203, 11-04-2009 01:07 PM
      I believe GT will be fine in white, with the red line in the middle of the lettering.. Like the G is two lines, one inside the other with a gap between, if you put red in there, that would look great.

I leave it up to Tyler and Nick, and AWESOME that Chris is willing to help.


Synthesis (synssins@gmail.com) MSG #204, 11-04-2009 01:10 PM
      Oh! And if they can be tinted, that would be great. It would go along with the windows.

Minnesota tint laws do not allow anything darker than 50% plus or minus 3%..
The Quarter windows do not count.. But the normal windows do.

He could probably safely get away with 30 or 35% up there.. He will be a local celebrity.

In more ways than one. I have been spreading this thread around, because I am trying to get coverage for Tyler's story. There are doctors out there who have undoubtedly dealt with people who are or have gone through the same thing. My goal is to get this to someone who can step up to the plate and say "I have worked with this before, let's see what we can do."

lynxer (nick@campuscoffee.net) MSG #208, 11-04-2009 01:48 PM
      One thing I left out in my previous post is this morning I asked Tyler about the intake and valve covers. He said the stock colors would be nice and what would be Really cool is white/black or white/silver to match the car. I like that idea. That was one of his ideas he had this morning.

As fast as the tint. I have 15% on my car and I only got one ticket. haha Tyler was with on that one. We were cruisin to much..... I think we can push the envelope a little and maybe like 30%.

We talked about the passenger side window and he seems to think it could be a loose wire or bad switch. It works intermittedly.


Synthesis (synssins@gmail.com) MSG #209, 11-04-2009 02:02 PM
      Broken wire in the rubber conduit between the door and the chassis. I had that happen on my car as well. Can be fixed, but not easy.

fieroguy123 is on the ball. We now have sail panels being made as we speak by the guy who made the ones listed above.
He will also be coming up to Frazee for the weekend, along with his wife and friend by the sounds of it. We have an event!

Infinite Will, please send the door molding piece to the address that Nick listed above. We'll get that up there and get it ready to roll when we get up there.


fieroguy123 (fieroguy1@yahoo.com) MSG #210, 11-04-2009 02:18 PM
      My local audio shop is reviewing this thread with intent to donate the required stereo equipment we need to finish his audio system. I'll keep you all posted on that one. And as far as the tint goes, rod carries 50, 35, 20, and 5. I think 35% is going to be the safe bet. He uses the best film on the market, there will be nothing to worry about when he's finished. He is the only guy in the U.S. who has tinted a bughatti Veyron. He's very good.

Also I just wanted to say this... All of you out there who have stepped up and reached out to tyler and contributed to his dream will be rewarded in the end. The Fiero community has the biggest heart of any car organization I have ever seen and it is nothing short of amazing. We are the true definition of a family and it will be recognized by others as a good deed and an excellent example of what every organization should be. Thanks to you all.

I have a good door trim (silver) off an 86 GT with the metal mount bracket if needed. Just say the word and I'll ship it before Friday.


Hulki/Andy, I am completely amazed by your compasion and commitment. Thousands of miles away, already sacrificing more than anyone could ask for your country and you take the time to get this thing rolling. Please stay safe and come home soon.

Synthesis, It takes a special person to step up and take the reigns as you have. Big props to you for all your hard work and organization.

To everyone involved. You are all an awesome group of people and I am proud to be associated with folks like you that have the heart and will to drop whatever is in your personal lives to help make a complete strangers life a little better. My faith and hope in people has been raised to a new level. Thanks to all of you. I can't wait to see Tyler sitting in that "custom" GT with a grin from ear to ear.

JohnWPB MSG #214, 11-04-2009 03:08 PM
      This probably goes without saying, but anyone going that is a photographer ( No camera phone's please! ) , please get LOTS of photo's of the car before, during and after. This way the ones of us that can't make it can follow the progress.

EDIT:

Posted at the same time.... Sorry Antuzzi, hahah, but the above photo is a good example of the quality of pics we do not want of the before, during and afters LOL

Personally, I think the intake should be done in white, with black accents. All black with just the white letters & lines will not let it stand out enough......

You my friend are not a photographer then hehehe There is no such thing as "too many pics". A true photographers motto, "take as many pictures as you can, and weed them out later".

When I photographed fireworks over Niagara Falls, I took over 100 photo's in that 20 minutes of fireworks. When I got home, 5 were really good, and only one of them was good enough to blow up, have matted, framed, and is now hanging in my living room.

I did secure a shop!

They are very busy and a little crampt for space, but we are going to make it work. The good thing is it is right in town and parts store's and the fleet store is very accessable. Also I am going to bring my tools in to the shop and then we don't mess them up to bad He has alot of specialty tools and we are welcome to use them if we need to, but I just think we will be better guests by using mine. One thing is we will need to all sign a waiver when we come into the shop just in case of someone getting hurt which is the owner just being safe and smart. Here is a shot of the work area we will have for the weekend. It is Warm, Dry and more than suitable.


Ohh he also said we had to finish this honda for him in trade haha J/K

The letter I sent.

Hello, My names is Rick Manning. First off let me say I am a huge fan of this show you guys seem like a great groupe of people with a real passion for cars. I'll cut to the chase. I am a huge fiero fan along with a bunch of my buddys. This month we are going to be doing a massive project on a fellow fiero owners vehical who will not be with us to much longer. The kids name is Tyler, he is 18 years old and He owns a 1986 auto Fiero GT. He has been dignosed with an untreatable cancer and has been givin a very short amount of time left on this earth.

The letter I sent.

Hello, My names is Rick Manning. First off let me say I am a huge fan of this show you guys seem like a great groupe of people with a real passion for cars. I'll cut to the chase. I am a huge fiero fan along with a bunch of my buddys. This month we are going to be doing a massive project on a fellow fiero owners vehical who will not be with us to much longer. The kids name is Tyler, he is 18 years old and He owns a 1986 auto Fiero GT. He has been dignosed with an untreatable cancer and has been givin a very short amount of time left on this earth. A bunch of us fiero owners are banning together to help him make his last wish of having his fiero on the road before he passes.

Great idea! I'd love if Chip and the A-team would come out here and give us a hand on this. I think that would make Tyler and everyone's day if this would happen. But if i remember correctly they stopped doing Overhauling it only ran for 5 seasons.

You should also email Chip Foose from his website www.chipfoose.com

I am also going to put up a list of who all is coming the weekend of the 21st. Thank you to all who have donated for this cause. To those that donated, could you please PM me your name and address? My wife really really really wants to make thank you cards for you guys and send them out. Her hobby is making cards, and they are awesome.

My wife also told me that even though I put Tyler's ship to address on the order for the turn signal lenses from the Fiero Store, they still got sent to my house, so she is forwarding them to Tyler's house.

      Hi, my name is Julie Wake. I am a teacher at Frazee and also the senior class sponsor. We are a small school with about 70 kids in each class and Tyler is a much loved senior of all of ours. To say what you guys are doing blows our minds is an understatement and the teachers of Frazee would like to do something for you. We would like to supply a meal for you while you are here working. If maybe as the day gets closer you could give me an estimate of how many of you are coming and where you would be working we would take care of the rest.

Thank you so much for your kind hearts. There is surely a place for all of you in heaven.

Synthesis (synssins@gmail.com) MSG #286, 11-05-2009 08:47 AM
      Ok everyone...

Hulki started this, he is the mastermind, I am just the evil henchman on the scene...

BUT, Bobby (fieroguy123) came up with the title "The Tyler Project", and I have dubbed the car "Tyler's Toy"...

I refuse to be gainsaid on this. These are the names we are sticking with for both the event and the vehicle...

Since Tyler and his family are following this thread, and I am pretty sure they are still in disbelief over what is happening, I have decided to put a list down of what we plan to do with the vehicle, and what our final goals are...

Many of us will arrive on Friday evening, with the goal of starting the car on Saturday.
The vehicle will need to be in the workshop on Friday night so that on Saturday it is all warmed up and ready to go. It should have the new windshield by this time, and all parts should be in.

Saturday morning, the dash, seats and headliner will be coming out. While the dash is out, the alarm system/remote start will be installed. This will have to
be a rush job, so while the electrical connections will be solid, wrapped and ready to go, the wiring may not be the cleanest. But it will work.

I am still waiting to find out if we have a four channel amp coming for this. If so, then I will be running new speaker wiring for the front speakers while the dash is out.

We will install the replacement dash, and install the new front speakers. Then, the cabling for the rear speakers will be run down the B-Pillars to the amp location, and all necessary cables for the amps will be run. The rear speakers will be mounted.

The rest of the dash and cluster will be replaced at this time. The headliner should be freshly recovered by this point in the game, so we will then reinstall that, and the rest of the interior trim. The sub box will be mounted under the dash, with the wiring for it in place.

While this is going on, one of our more experienced members will be rebuilding the headlight motors. (They work, but in order to prevent a failure as soon as the car is done, we will be installing new gears and bumpers from Rodney Dickman.)

Assuming all of the engine parts are on hand at the time, someone will be in back tearing into the motor to replace the injectors, and the intake plenum and manifolds.

This will include a new O-Ring for the distributor.

The seats will be reupholstered around this time, and will be set aside for reinstallation at the last possible moment.

The stereo will be mounted in the dash and connected to the amps. If the main battery is connected, the sound system test will be performed, with some fine tuning.

The ground effects for the driver's side will be put in place when all of this is done.

There is so much more we will be doing to the car, but this is a teaser for the planned event.

Thank you all so much for your participation. I am excited about this!

      Just a thought here...........

I live in Moorhead, MN here..............

Fargo/Moorhead is 50 miles from where the build will take place.

Moorhead, MN is a sister city to Fargo, ND meaning we are border towns, seperated only by the Red River of the North.

If someone is flying into Fargo and needs to be picked up at the airport and such I can help.

Just need to know time and where to destination.

Agreed. Excellent choice of names!

Thank you, Synthesis and others, for taking this project to the height that it has achieved. When I first posted this, I was honestly just expecting to be able to get a new front bumper and maybe a few other little parts. I had no idea it would turn out like this! My heart is all warm and gooey 7000 miles away from home! I can't wait to come home, and fly with Pat (katatak) to MN, meet Tyler and his family, and see this car. I am sure pictures will not do the car justice. Thank you to all for all of your hard work and effort that you have put into this. You have all gone way above and beyond the call of duty here, and I salute you all.

Concerning the flying into Fargo issue: It IS much closer, and there are a couple members up here that can give rides. RedBaron has offered to give a ride to member(s), I don't know how many he can transport. I can also give a ride for 1-2 people, My truck CAN seat 3.

      Just talked to the fiero store. I'm paying to have hats made for all of the parties that will be attending the build weekend. They are the white winter stocking hats with the black fiero emblem embroidered on the front and I'll have "The Tyler Project 2009" emboidered on it as well. Just a thank you to all of you who are taking time away from your busy lives to help another fiero guy.

We have access to unlimited space for transporting people here, as Nick and I know someone with a Limo service.........

With a little prodding I`m sure he would donate his services if needed.

I also know someone with Dodge Caravans that seat 7.

I own a Dodge Grand Caravan, and if a group is comming to Fargo and needing transportation for the weekend
I will let them use it for the weekend.

Let us know if this is needed.

A BIG Thank You to all who have stepped up for this cause.

I know Tyler appreciates it.

I used to fly a lot. I suggest packing it in the check on luggage. They most likely will not have a problem with it being there. They are really starting to limit carry on items by size and content. They may even charge a fee if it is carry on.

      Just had 20 hats made. Black over white and white over black. I spent every dollar I had in my pocket and 20 was all I could get. Hopefully there will be enough to give the family some and 1 for everyone helping. http://carphotos.cardomain....3641660018_large.jpg to view the hat.

Big thanks to Bob the manager at "Lids" in the castleton mall, Indianapolis. He charged me nothing for the embroidery (saved $180) so all I had to buy was the hats themselves. Very good people and I will be shopping there in the future.

      Okay, I have recieved SEVERAL pm's about the hats and it's led me to an idea. Tyler has asked me for 10 of them. So those are spoken for. Hulki is getting one of them mailed to his house tomorrow as he is the one who started this whole thing. that leaves 9. Maybe I should have about 30 or so more of them made and sell them for $20 a piece with procedes going to tylers family. I want to make sure that all guys going up to help with the car get one for free with the option of donating the $20 but won't have to. Any thoughts? I know there will be alot of his friends and family there that weekend including the teachers who will be making a meal for us. I have a feeling they would all want one too.

      The most recent post on Tyler's Caring Bridge journal...

Wednesday, November 4, 2009 8:29 PM, CST
I am sure everyone has been anxiously awaiting an update. Our first day home went really well. First the ride home was good. We had a few bumps to start out, but the ride was pain free and smooth sailing. The welcome in Frazee was amazing to say the least and made me cry. Tyler is so fortunate to have such amazing support from our whole town.

Once we got him in the house, his hospital bed was already set up. The hospice nurse met us at the door and the intake for that was quick and slick. I already know that this is an amazing program and am very glad they are going to be part of the next step in this journey.

Carter and Cassie didn't make it home until today. We thought maybe Cassie was a little under the weather, so we held off until today. To say this was hard on them and me is an understatement. I have been really missing my litte kiddos and so were Jay and Tyler. Today they came home and we let them miss school. It was just nice to have everyone at home under the same roof. We only had a few visitors today, but Tyler had a really good feeling day today. We got him up in the recliner and he was there for about 3 hours or so and no problems or pain. Tomorrow Jay is maybe going to be working on a wheelchair ramp with a friend of his and maybe we can kick Tyler out of the house for a little bit every now and then.

Tyler has been eating all day, a little here and there. Ice cream, sherbet, a little hot dish, coco wheats. It is kind of like this guessing game of let's try this and see how it goes. Sometimes he likes it, sometimes he doesn't, but he has been eating with no nausea and drinking a little all the time all day long.

On a more serious note, now that we are home I am kind of at a loss of what to do with myself. It seems like we have been waiting for this coming home moment for so long that now that we are here I am a little lost. I am just not sure what to do... does that make sense? Today we kind of sat around and looked at each other. How does a person know what is the right thing to do? Do I work? Do I get out of the house and see friends? Do I get back to what used to be our normal routine? I am just feeling very uncertain. I like a plan... a goal... a direction. I guess now that we are home I need to find that again. It was actually hard to leave all of the wonderful staff at Meritcare. We will miss them very much as they became very special and dear to us. A part of me didn't want to leave. It was almost like leaving the hospital made all of this real, like if we stayed in the hospital we would just continue "waiting" and nothing would ever change. Leaving the hospital for me was sort of like a line we crossed into the next stage of cancer. This probably makes absolutely no sense to anyone but me... by now everyone knows I have these moments. I know God is with us every step of the way, but sometimes I feel like I need to reach so far to find Him.

Tyler is very excited about his car being fixed up too. I can't tell you how many times he mentioned it today. That people he has never even met face to face are coming here to do such an amazing thing for him is beyond amazing. You have given him something to look forward to, a goal, a direction. He is GLOWING folks when he talks about this!

Hey man, it is great to hear from you. I am glad you could join us.
Now, we fully expect you to get off your backside and put some work into this with us..
I KID I KID! You just lay there, get your strength back, hire a hot hospice nurse, and take it easy...

      Parts list updated in first post...

Marker lamps for all four corners. I see that the rear passenger does not fit right in one of the high res photos I was sent... They may not be used at all, and you would get them back, but for now, I want to make sure we can cover them.

I will be posting photos here shortly...

Cold. Bring long pants and long sleeves...

Anderson Bus Service in Frazee is willing to run shuttle service for the Fiero people on the event weekend.

If you are flying into Fargo, please let us know your schedule, and we can notify Ted at Anderson Bus Service so that a vehicle can be there to pick you up. If we can consolidate people coming into Fargo into a single trip, it would work better.
Most of their heavy stuff is out at those times, but they have vans and mini-vans.

      Hi FRAZEE!!! Welcome to the world's greatest car forum!

We are so excited to be able to do this for one of our own! I know that I myself have a lot tied up in this from both a "Ass-on-the-line" perspective and an emotional perspective, so I am going to make sure this is a huge success...

I have never met Tyler, but I feel that I know him based on everything I have read, the people I have talked to, and the response I see.

I have no doubt in my mind that what we have planned is a worthy cause, and I know that it has helped pull a random group of anonymous strangers both on and off the internet into a great big family with a beacon at it's center.

Thank you all for the kind words and the support as we prepare to do this, and to Hulki for getting this started.

      The order for hats has climbed to 15 more. Ten of which are a request from Tylers family.. As it stands, I have spent more than I could afford on the first 20 hats, and I cannot afford to pay for the rest. A teacher from Tylers school contacted me and offered up some money for more hats, but still about $50 short. Can anybody help? I would buy hats for EVERYONE if I could afford it but it's just not possible.
Again, here's the link to the picture of the hats. http://carphotos.cardomain....3641660018_large.jpg

The money that is in that account was donated with the intetion of it being put towards Tylers car. Thank you very much for the offer though. Thank you.

      In contact with numerous news stations around the region...

I have sent the following email out to them...

The goal is to get Tyler's story out as far and wide as I can. You never know when someone out there can step up to the plate and say "We can help."

Begin email:

An Online Community comes together to help a small town Minnesota man fulfill a dream..

An 18 year old Frazee high school senior was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer. His dreams of fixing his 1986 Pontiac Fiero sports car up come to a screeching halt... Until the Fiero community hears..

Enter, "Tyler's Dream Team"
Members of the 17,000+ strong online Fiero community known as Pennock's Fiero Forum have raised over $1,600 in merchandise donations, gift certificates and parts, along with $700+ in cash donations, and untold numbers of labor hours to make Tyler's dream come true.
Members from around the world have donated time, effort, parts and money to the cause. Many local businesses have donated their time and labor to help the Fiero Forum members.

Many people will be flying in from all over the US for the sole purpose of getting their hands dirty while working on "Tyler's Toy", the 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT.

The webpage, www.tylerstoy.com is incomplete, but will feature his story when we have progressed further.

The actual forum thread is below showing the plans, the amount of participation, and the sheer amount of love people can show for their own.
http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/078180.html

The event dates are November 20th-22nd. The majority of the work will be performed on the 21st.

The entire town of Frazee is now monitoring our one simple thread, and it warms the heart to see how complete strangers can unite into a family.

Hulki is getting one of them mailed to his house tomorrow as he is the one who started this whole thing. that leaves 9. Maybe I should have about 30 or so more of them made and sell them for $20 a piece with procedes going to tylers family. I want to make sure that all guys going up to help with the car get one for free with the option of donating the $20 but won't have to. Any thoughts? I know there will be alot of his friends and family there that weekend including the teachers who will be making a meal for us. I have a feeling they would all want one too.



O.k. First all I am sorry that I did not see anything about somebody wanting to do hats a couple of days ago. And I am sorry that you spent over $200.00 on 20 beanie caps!!! My name is Chris and I own Arrow Silk Screening and Embroidery here in Algonquin, IL. I will donate 25 White and 25 Black Beanies embroidered for this event. PM me with a couple of better pics of the embroidery and I will try and match it or make it better. Also provide me a with shipping information. Thanks, Chris

      Here is an idea for those that can't make it.
On the weekend of the 20th, go out and work on your own cars. Keep Tyler in your thoughts while you work and then post what you did (with a picture) in a "What I did to my Fiero on Tyler's day" thread. Help by keeping the Karma high. It would be nice to see just how many members around the world get involved.

We have had 820 cash donated. After the windshield expense, that leaves us with 721.37 sitting in paypal..

We still need GT Tail Light assemblies. Driver's side is damaged. Passenger side is in good shape. I can order replacements from the Fiero Store and have them shipped out if needed. I will give it a few more days to see if someone can find something. If not, then I will order the new tail light lenses from TFS.

Yup. I was thinking about asking about a Friday night as well..
You know, if we were to end up hanging out outside of Frazee Auto Body and Glass, we wouldn't get any sleep... Many of us wish we could come up there right now and get started... So, being near the Fiero would just be irresistible to us.

I was thinking the same thing. good idea! I'm going to be staying at the Budget Host Inn, Detroit lakes,MN Friday and Sat nights.


Synthesis (synssins@gmail.com) MSG #439, 11-05-2009 09:00 PM
      Yep. Budget Host Inn here as well. Budget Host Inn is 7 miles west of Frazee on Hwy 10. A single bed room with a queen is 52 and change. A double bed room with two queen beds is 56 and change. Plus tax on both.

Splitting a double would result in 30 bucks a pop for the room. Free breakfast in the morning...

I am still waiting to hear back on getting a lower price, but that is pretty reasonable as it is.

Can't make a trip to lake country without going there...Lynxer do you think they would be willing to do anything for the cause? Even if not it is a great place to hang out and I sure some of the teachers would be willing to give up a Friday night to meet and greet Of course Lynxer if you have a different place in mind....

As for the hats glad it is covered....the class of 2009 will have to put their heads back together and come up with something else

Actually, an idea has popped into my little mind... A fund raiser for the family on top of what is already being done.

I am working with Cornersonrails on T-Shirts.. He will print them at cost. About 5 bucks for a Small/Medium/Large/XL, 7 for a 2X or 3X....

The senior class can sell the shirts for 12 for the smaller sizes, 15 for the larger ones. All profits on top of cost would go to the family.

The shirt simply shows a line drawing of Tyler's car. Centered below that is "The Tyler Project 2009"
Below that, centered is "www.tylerstoy.com"

On the back is simply a "Thank you to:" with a list below it of everyone who has donated time, parts, labor, new product, money...

In my head, I envision white lettering/line drawing on a solid black T-Shirt.

Does this sound good to anyone?

The shift surround is in good shape on your parts car by the looks of it. Bring that, the radio bezel if it is in good shape (Yes, I did just go there). Pack the surround solid so it does not break.

The AC controls (they look cleaner than what is in there), and if the sunvisors are solid, with minimal to no sag to the cloth and no staining... Those too.

The shifter shroud i can deffenetley do. the radio bezzel ill see if i can find one in the yard. Lol cant give the one in there up because this cars going back on the road but I think I might have a radio bezzel in close to good shape around here. And that hvac unit was having problems when i gave the car up so i dought anything has changed now. Im making a yard run so synthsis get me a list of what we need and ill grab it.

Maybe we should have Pete do an MFF e-mail broadcast to give the club an opportunity to donate items or labor to the project. Waiting for the monthly meeting on the 16th might be too late for people to change plans.

Just a thought.

That is a great idea Jeff.

I spoke with Tyler and his family tonight. With everything going on up there and around here on the forums, I am going to reduce my contact with the media. I think they need a little bit of time to settle back into the daily routine.


Also, please check the first post. I have added business names and numbers up there for the local businesses helping out. Transportation, Lodging and the like are in there, so if you need a pickup from Fargo, and a place to stay, the info is up there.

TONS of sponsors, just browse through here and see who has donated what. Everything I was able to get a company involved with is posted in here.

      You guys are all saints. This forum gives me hope for humanity.

We should all pay attention to the companies that are donating and if we need their services in future we should go to them. I think it show a lot about who someone is if they are willing to help a total stranger.

I am working with Cornersonrails on T-Shirts.. He will print them at cost. About 5 bucks for a Small/Medium/Large/XL, 7 for a 2X or 3X....

The senior class can sell the shirts for 12 for the smaller sizes, 15 for the larger ones. All profits on top of cost would go to the family.

The shirt simply shows a line drawing of Tyler's car. Centered below that is "The Tyler Project 2009"
Below that, centered is "www.tylerstoy.com"

On the back is simply a "Thank you to:" with a list below it of everyone who has donated time, parts, labor, new product, money...

In my head, I envision white lettering/line drawing on a solid black T-Shirt.

Does this sound good to anyone?


W00T! Page 12!



I will need 4 of those shirts - 3 - XL's and 1 - 4XL if possible. If not a 3XL will do. Let me know what the full cost will be and shiping to 79938. I will send the money ASAP to whoever is gong to be handling that end of it. Thanks

Send some emails to some of the auto specialty places like Jegs, Summit, etc. I have sent several to Foose, Summit, Jegs, Edlebrock and Holley. I have not received any response but I keep sending them. I feel kinda like you - I want to be there for the 21st so bad I can't stand it. Just got off AA.com and was looking at airfare. I can afford it but I have pressing issues here in El Paso that I would have to neglect. My wife is having surgery on Wednesday - off her feet for 6 weeks and we found out tonight that my youngest son's High School football team is seeded 1st in thier division for the Texas State playoffs. Thier first playoff game is Saturday 11/14. If they win this one (I hope I hope I hope) they will be going to Houston on the 20th. I don't think it would be a good idea to miss that one! I have resolved myself to do what I can from here. We will be there in Frazee in spirt though.

      I don't think bringing the headliner is such a great idea... If I do get a ride from Chris, it will be in his Fiero. I do not know who would be picking you up, but that headliner would be a pain even in a regular car, as well as trying to get it on the plane.

Just let me know what the shipping for it is when you get a chance.... Also, ALL parts going to MN should stay in MN.

I am getting ready to send out more emails to any vendors I can think of. I am also going to send one off to Crutchfield, maybe they will donate that amp.

The Mafia T-Shirts are an "In-joke" for Minnesota Fieros. It simply means that in the Fiero community, there really isn't much more to life than the Fiero, and that is all you need.
I won't comment on the shirt otherwise, as I have always wanted one, and not had the funds... :P

JohnWPB, I have asked for a half day from work. I can hold off to pick you up. If you can get an earlier flight to Mpls/St Paul, that would be even better, as I will be getting off of work at Noon to take care of some things before heading up.

Let me know. As for the early Sunday flight, I may not be able to get you back in time for that.

If you flew into Fargo, how much more would that add to your ticket? Some of the donation funds have been sent with the express goal of helping people with travel.

I agree with Cliff as well. This is about Tyler and fulfilling his dream to have a nice car. In the efforts to find someone who might be able to help with media coverage, I may have lost sight of that. After a brief conversation with the family last night, it dawned on me that they are still at a loss as to everything going on.

Another part of my Asperger's Syndrome. It did not occur to me how overwhelmed they would be with us doing this, with the entire community chipping in, on top of everything that they are going through.
As such, I have told the existing media contacts that if they do decide to run a story on Tyler, that they would need to do so without his direct input, unless he chose to join in on his own accord. This will allow us to get his story out, the benefit account info out, and coverage of how the town has pulled together without disturbing the family.

Then you will really love this.. My idea for the front of the T-Shirts... I will post the back in a little bit.
White on a black T-Shirt, or any color T-Shirt with a contrasting color would do. Just the white really shows better.

I am 100% with that. I would suggest that all of the businesses that participate get T-Shirts for the staff at no charge, and the remainder of the shirts go up for sale.
I would gladly buy one myself.

Don, you are awesome! I was wondering if he would need dew wipes, especially with the window tint. If you want to donate those to the cause, you are more than welcome to.
You are going on the "Thank you" list. Do you want a name on there, or your forum name?

      The most recent journal post on Tyler's Caring Bridge site. AWESOME!

Good morning,

Things continue to be going good here at home. Tyler has been doing really well with no pain and eating a little all the time. He did get sick twice, but that was more related to coughing and hiccuping than nausea. He didn't get out of bed yesterday but that was more due to a steady stream of activities versus just not wanting to. His cousin Kari came over for movies and he also had Nate and Joe over last night for movies... they watched Saw. I went to bed We also had friends of ours stop over, many phone calls, and a hospice nurse. I fell asleep on the couch... you would think I actually DID something yesterday. Friends of ours, Barry and Tracy, brough Tyler a case for his Greenbay football. How cool is that!?! That and his jersey are the first things he wakes up to in the morning and last thing he sees when he snoozes off to sleep.

The Fiero project continues to get bigger and bigger. http://www.tylerstoy.com/menupage.html

The amount of support for this is more than I can wrap my mind around. He talks about this constantly, is checking the internet all day long, and is so excited. What a fabulous bunch of guys to make Tyler's dream come true. I can't put a price on what you have done for him or what it means to us as parents to see him sparkle. He thinks about this all day long in anticipation of the next news, the next post, the next text message.


I guess I am speaking to the senior class today. I really don't know what I am going to say. I have been trying to think of the right words all night and I got nada. I am a better writer than a speaker, so let's just hope I don't fall down... I would consider this a success if that didn't happen

Edit: I own page 15. That makes three this thread.

FLY AGAIN

So many miles have come and gone
Through rainy days and sunny skies
Motor singing like a song

The engine roars and music plays
To feel like this just can't be wrong

Dust has fallen, beat has slowed
The body's worn, buttons stick
Through all the years still I know,
Together we will fly again

      How good is the RIGHT side taillight ? Is it really nice and shiny? Reason I ask is, I have a left side but it is haze and has the internal peeling.

Here is a pic. I dont want to provide a bad part compared to a part it is sitting next to on the car.Its the only left side taillight I have however.

      I haven't seen this thread for a couple of days, and now I am in tears. I wish I was there to help you all to help this young man. However, that isn't possible. Ellie just came to me and asked why I had tears running down my cheeks, so I showed her this thread.
We don't have much, especially now Ellie's work has finished, but she just turned to me and said ' we have 50 euros in the Bank account, so we must send it to help'.
Where do we send it to? By Paypal, I guess. I just hope it is enough to make a little difference amongst all the incredible generosity and downright humanity and kindness which has been aroused once again in PFF.
God Bless you , and Tyler and his Family and friends too.

I guess I will just check back in the thread and find the Paypal address somewhere

God Bless you Tyler. Prayers and good wishes are coming to you from Spain.

      OK I just touched base with some of the alumni and the senior class. Tyler's mom came and talked to them and was amazing...don't worry Tyler, there was no tripping or stories about you The alumni and class of 2010 are going to work together for the shirts. Any way we could change the one line on the shirts from the Frazee senior class to maybe Frazee Class of 2010 and add Frazee Alumni? If not don't worry about it, no biggie, they aren't doing it for the recognition The class of 2010 would also like to be your official "greeters" if anything gets planned for Friday and maybe share some stories about Tyler and make you feel welcomed. They just want to say thank you for taking such good care of one of theirs.

      Andy,
Thanks for getting this all started. I sent money via Paypal. I have a question on the parts needed. When you say surround for HVAC and AC, do you mean the front bezel plate, or do you mean the structural surround that the radio mounts into. I have a full set of bezels from an 86 SE (speedo, aux guages, radio). Let me know if you need them.

The trim bezel surround. If you have a full set, that would allow us to match everything. Awesome!

Yes, I will update the text for the shirts, I have to correct things on it anyway.
I emailed Cole at Zorbaz in Detroit Lakes, and I am hoping to hear back from him. He was supposed to have been in today.
If anyone would like to follow up with him, that would be great.

Budget Host Inn just outside of town. 52 a night for a single bed, 55 a night for a double. Add tax to those.
The double bed room, if split, would give you 30 a night.

Snap pics of the car please. Inside/Outside/Engine/Front bay. We can't wait to see how it turned out.
And don't be afraid to overload us with photos. Let's see what she looks like. And again, please get Dennis and Crew to pose with the car for us. I know they did this of their own free will and goodness of their hearts, but I really hope they got all of those areas.

Also, I think we should have our meet and greet at Zorbaz on Friday no matter what.
Please invite them out so we can thank them.

I believe both are going to be about the same. The one you show can be polished and then clear coated. The delamination can be taken care of with paint if needed. It is a step in the right direction, and if it does not work, we can always order the Fiero Store lenses down the road.

      Cole at Zorbaz is willing to help us out with space and "pizzaz" for a meet and greet on Friday, but they are already booked for a corporate holiday party on the 20th. So Zorbaz is out for that regard. They did offer to donate an appropriate amount of large pizzaz for pickup on the 21st.

Options for a "fallback" location in Frazee/DL for a meet and greet? I would assume that we would want a family style location with room, and even alcohol for those who like some liquid grain with their food. Just keep it family friendly for the under 21 people who would want to come by.

Its CRAZY how much more it is!!! It's $197 from here to St. Paul, and $486 to Fargo! I was gonna use my Skymiles to cover the ticket to St. Paul, its 32,000 miles, to Fargo it would be 48,900 Skymiles! So it looks like I would have to go into St. Paul, as it is far less than half the price of flying into Fargo.

      Love this project!!! We can pick the car up from Norsemans on Monday, November 9th and bring it back here to the shop if thet is okay with everyone. That way we can start on the pre paint prep work! You guys are an awesome bunch of guys, and we look foreword to meeting all of you. All in All is a great idea for a Tshirt sale location, we could also put some up here at Frazee Auto Body if you would like. Let me know if you think of anything else we can do!

Space is limited!!!

Dear Christopher,

Thank you for inquiring about our motel, I would be happy to assist in your project for Tyler. I wish I could give you the rooms at no charge, but I will be able to do $20 per night for one person & $25 for two, that is just to cover the costs involved (cleaning, laundry etc.). What we will do is make sure your have clean towels & empty the garbage every day you are here, we will not make up the beds, etc., to save you on the cost of having the rooms cleaned every day. I have a total of 10 rooms, 5 of which are doubles (2 full size beds), 3 are singles (1 full size bed) & 2 are kitchenettes (1 full size bed)-I am assuming that no one will be cooking so I will still charge the lowered rate for those as well. All rooms are equipped with a micro, refrigerator, TV/DVD, high speed Internet (DSL)(need cord), and all are non-smoking. We are located on apx. 11 acres with a 1500 foot or 5 minute walk to the lake we are on...Acorn Lake. I do not have credit card capability, cash or check, personal checks are welcome. At this time I have already filled a couple of rooms with the Fiero Club members that are flying in, I am expecting some more calls. I am assuming (I hope) this is the same group you were checking rooms for.

Any questions please feel free to call or have any that are interested in rooms give me a call at 218-334-5021.

Thank You,
Robin
Morningside Motel

Sun, Nov 22, 2009
Departs 4:10pm, Arrives 10:35pm
AirTran Airways 889 / 766
Minneapolis, MN to West Palm Beach, FL

I have a ride with Synthesis from St. Paul to Frazee on Friday, and a room on Fri & Sat nights.

What I do not have as of yet, is a place to crash on Thursday night, and not too sure about getting back to the airport on Sunday. Anyone recommend a cheap hotel/motel around the St. Paul airport?

I am beginning to think we need to start getting everyone's flight information, arrival times and airport they are flying into. Also where they are planning to stay, and if they have another bed avail in their room to share ect. This will help everyone, in getting better organized. This also will help the bus service that has offered to shuttle people to the Fargo airport.

If everyone wants to start emailing me their flight info, room needed, or have one to share, rides needed and so forth, I can start compiling an organized list. I can then give it to the OP to post in the first thread, or can stick it on a page on my site. I am also setting up a Google Calendar and will post the link shortly.

Flight info, rooms avail, rooms needed ect, please email me at johnwpb <at> gmail dot com

I have JUST enough Delta Skymiles to cover the flight, and then pay $10 in taxes and... get this... a $75 "Redemption fee" !!! LOL, you have to pay to use the miles it seems like....


Regarding flying, my wife recently flew Delta and they charged $20 each to check any size bag. Something to plan for , for anyone flying if money is tight and they didn't include that in your ticket cost...

      Wow Danyel, that was fast! Thanks for adding the calendar to Tyler's site. The calendar will be updated by myself or Synthesis as we get more information.


IMPORTANT!

Please email me at JohnWPB <at> gmail dot com if you are planning on being there in person on the weekend of the 20th. I am trying to get a rough headcount of how many are actually going to be there.

If you need someone to share a room with, or have an extra bed to share, let me know that as well. For those low on funds, Tracy and Barry have offered to sleep 4 people in a trailer that they own, It was in winter storage, but they were nice enough to set it all up for anyone that needs it. It has a shower, plenty of room for 4 people, TV ect.

If you would like, Send me a lit of the parts and supplys. Im getting there a day earley and possabley renting a car so ill stop by there earley so i can itemize and cout for all the parts.



Synthesis (synssins@gmail.com) MSG #645, 11-06-2009 06:52 PM
      Ok guys/gals...

The calendar features our itinerary, but no final details.

I am making my contact information public for everyone..

My name is Chris Kliewer
My phone number is 612-605-8993
This number will prompt you for your name BEFORE it dials my phones.. Don't hang up. I will pick up if I hear it ring.

I will be leaving work at Noon on Friday, November 20th. I may run home if I have to pick anything up. I will pick JohnWPB up wherever he is staying (in the Southern Metro/Suburbs hopefully) and then attempt to beat the rush hour out of the Twin Cities.

If I make it, that will put me out by Maple Grove (NW Cities) around 1, and then from there it is a 3.5 hour drive according to Google Maps.. So that means that I should make it in 2 with the Fiero.

Safe assumption that we will be in between 4-6, if all goes smoothly. I should probably scrounge up some funds for an ignition module for my car just in case.. Knock on wood.

Friday Night... A meet and greet so we can meet Tyler (if he is feeling up to it), his friends, family, and the townsfolk. It will finally give people a chance to see who the heck has been bugging them endlessly on the phone.

Saturday Morning.. Bright and early, 8 AM. Continue where everything has currently left off.
On Saturday, we will be recovering the headliner, replacing the dash with a better condition dash, new speakers, new stereo, alarm system/remote start, new seat upholstery, replacing any trim pieces and switches that look like they need it, as long as we have parts.

In the engine bay, replacing the upper plenum, middle intake, and the injectors with nice new spiffy ones.
I do not believe a throttle body gasket has been figured into this, but since the new plenum has just been powder coated, I will arrange to bring a gasket up.
New stainless steel vacuum lines for the engine from Rodney Dickman. MAP sensor cover from Loyde at Fast Fieros
New O-Ring for the distributor. Need to find a timing light.

In the front end, new Sylvania Silverstar H6054 headlamps. Unsure on the condition of the existing, so replacing with new. New gears and bumpers from Rodney Dickman to be installed in the motors. This will hopefully keep the motors from not making us look like fools on the day of the great reveal. lol

Top off all fluids, do a wipe down of the interior, engine, and front bays. Check for anything missing..

Remember that the seats are sitting in the corner still waiting for Leather... Smack self on forehead, then redo the seat upholstery. Reinstall seats. Sit in seats and say "Ooooh! Leather!" Crank sound system. Enjoy the mellow sounds of anything with lots of drums and guitars.

Finish vehicle, do wipe down, find local hole in the wall, and enjoy the company of good friends and good people.

Sunday morning, 7AM. Final inspection of vehicle. Clean finger prints, drool, and any lingering specs of dust from the car. Perform quick detail wipe on tires/wheels, interior.

9AM.. The great reveal...

Put me down for helping you with the interior. Not to blow my own horn but i dont know many people who can strip out and replace an interior as fast as me so i will assist you with that.
I will be bringing my tool box along with some vital tools for this project. Synthesis down worry about an ignition modual i have a bunch of them and will bring one with me for you if you need one.
Wehn we get done on the interior im pretty handy all the way around with these little buggers so put me where ever you need me.

Exactly! I swapped my module out in 2006 when I bought my car back... It broke down on me the day after I got it as I was driving up to a friend's house to show him I had my old car back.
I have not swapped it since. lol You KNOW it will break down on me. Knock on wood.


JohnWPB MSG #652, 11-06-2009 07:06 PM
      I just thought of this! I have a complete, brand new upper gasket set I can donate and bring. So, no worries on gaskets!

This is the gasket set I have:

Fel-Pro MS 93020 Intake Manifold Set


I will bring an ignition module and a coil with me (Not joking.... I have an extra of both... just in case)

      oh I can't wait to get up there. I might be able to bring my fiero, that is if the weather permits.

Whats the status on the dash? Is someone going to pick it up from GTJeff? My brother (1984redsc) is going to take my impala so there will be room for it. AND if anyone needs a ride from the air port just let me know. I should have a spare seat.

P.S will there be hats up there for us when we are there, or do we have to order them?

I have a few little mtachbox/hotwheels toy fieros. I can send one of them as well.

I would like to come up, but I have something on Saturday night that I can't get out, so if I were to come up I would need to leave by 1:30 - 2:00 PM on Saturday. Secondly, I don't know how much help I would be other then get in the way. I can offer to do detailing & assembly work. What I previously noted I was debating taking parts / people up on Friday. I get off at 11 AM if I don't take the morning off. Is there things that can be done on Friday?

There are people that can pick you up from either:

There are several cars leaving from the twin cities, and vikingredbaron (and possibly me) have room for a passenger or a handful from the Fargo area. I'm guessing you are landing in Minneapolis? Try contacting synthesis or 1984fierosc

Oh, my apologies. I thought you had confirmed. My mistake Jeff. sorry. I thought I had seen you confirm. LOL
If you do go up on Friday, the seats will need to come out if they are not already out. You can pull the front headlight assemblies as well if you would like.
Set those to the side, and just reinstall the nuts up on the studs.

      What a fantastic effort and yes, I know that's is a gross understatement. If someone in the Detroit Lakes area has a moment, the local news media should be notified to what's happening in their own back yard. This is a great, positive human interest story and beats the hell out of Extreme Home Makeover. The Fiero community is simply doing the right thing for simply the right reasons. You have people and parts coming from all over, people donating time, money and plane tickets. It's a story that should be documented and shared. I would think a quick phone call and/or sending this thread's link would do the trick.

I am work on it in the background. Please let me coordinate the effort. Media outlets like to have a scoop on a story. The more it is spread around the less likely they are in covering it. Thanks.

      I just want to say how dog gone impressed I am with all of you. The coordination, and the extra effort is fantastic. As pointed out before, Tyler is the main focus of this project. You guys are going a great job! I REALLY wish I could be there. It sounds like more fun than almost show or event I can think of.

I have always known that Fiero owners are a special breed. I knew that by meeting people even before PFF was born, but this forum has brought everyone together more than ever.

Keep up the good work! Again.... VERY impressed.

That looks good.. Also waiting on EPS files and whatnot for the images. Cornersonrails needs EPS or drawing files in order to be able to scale and print.

For what it is worth.... It might be a good idea to remove the license plate number. Maybe "Tyler's Toy" and the Fiero logo or something.

I have the Photoshop file here, they can be easily converted I believe... The image is transparent, (Only the white is the drawing) and can also be easily reversed to black for printing on a white shirt.

If you do go up on Friday, the seats will need to come out if they are not already out. You can pull the front headlight assemblies as well if you would like.
Set those to the side, and just reinstall the nuts up on the studs.



Not a problem. I could probably handle those two jobs. Too bad the lights are not 87/88s, as I can remove, install a Rodney kit, and replace in under 25 minutes.

I know.

And Rodney already agreed to 84-86 gears/bumpers.. No biggie.
I could find 87-88 motors and a front harness, but it would be a PITA to swap.

Times are tough for a lot of people--and we're lucky to have a few that can do this, but understandably, not all are able to. If I had 4 kids at home like 25 yrs ago, I would be in a big bind myself. There is however, a little something everyone can do for Tyler. see sig.

      I received the invoice/receipt for the windshield today from Frazee Auto Body and Glass. Karen and Dave left a nice note on it for us.

I quote:
"Thank you very much for allowing us the opportunity to help out Tyler and his family. They are in our thoughts and prayers. Thanks to you and your organization for doing such a wonderful thing! Signed: Karen & Dave Gray - Frazee Auto Body & Glass"

Karen, thank YOU and Dave for the willingness to invest your time and effort and funds to help us with this. What started as a small plan to just get a few people to send some parts to Tyler, sort of snow balled into a cause. I think that we (meaning the Fiero community) were in need of a cause to rally around. This is a very slow time for the community, as we deal with cars and shows, and the snow is fast approaching.
With Tyler's simple note asking for some help, the torch was lit and like moths, we gathered around the flame. One of our own was in trouble. We had to help.

This isn't about Tyler's car, or this forum, or the people on the forum. This is about Tyler, a fact that you and Dave understand 100%. You both know, along with everyone else who has seen this thread exactly why we are doing what we are doing. Tyler shares a passion for a very unique piece of automotive history. A passion that many would say is odd at best, and downright obscene at the worst. lol

But there is no denying the passion for these cars. Once you start, you can't stop. Tyler has proven himself throughout his life as an honest, kind and caring young man full of integrity and spirit.
I don't need to meet him to know this is true. I know this because of all of the people I have spoken with ever since this snowball started rolling. We, as a community do this for someone who is just like us in many ways, yet unique enough in his own individuality as to stand apart from the every day crowd.

I guess what I am saying is, we couldn't do this without you and Dave, and Robin at the Morningside Motel, Dennis at Norseman's, and all of the people in "small town" Frazee.
I grew up in a town with a population of 470 people, less than 20 miles from a city with over 2 million. Even now, knowing what it is like when everyone knows who you are just because you live in town, it still amazes me how a small community can show love, compassion, dedication, and determination for a member of their ranks.

Thank YOU, and everyone else who has donated, given good wishes, or even just stepped in and said "We are thinking of you."

Frankly, I am surprised you think of us as an organization... We are more like a group of lost, bewildered strangers dumped in a strange land and heading for that thing in the distance that is shining brightly.

Synthesis (synssins@gmail.com) MSG #710, 11-06-2009 10:31 PM
      Mmeyer has agreed to ship a leather auto shift knob at no charge as soon as he has moved. The only thing he asks is that two auto shift knobs be sent in, as he needs cores.
The replacements can not be the vinyl with fake stitching.

If you are looking for a way to help out, and you have a spare handle, please ship it in to him.

I believe brakes, oil, filter, plugs, wires and other stuff have been donated. If not, we can purchase while we are there. Brakes "shouldn't" be difficult. He has an Auto trans, so doing the "Grand Am" upgrade would be quite simple, and with donations, easy to do. Checking into the feasibility of this. We already have a lot on our plates.

I've been reading the Journal and guestbook over at CaringBridge--dang if I'm not about ready to sell the farm here in Texas, buy some warm clothes, and move up there---that's one heck of a town!!!
I definitely have a new found respect for you Minnesotans, and am jealous as heck I can't go with you guys--not that I'd be much help, having never driven anything but 84s.
BTW, at least one of you guys going to Frazee better have at least 1 Fiero tattoo.
(ya have to read the guestbook entries to get it.)
Tyler, his family and everyone up there are among the most courageous folks I've ever read about---God Bless them all.

Thoughts and prayers are gift enough! The fact that you are thinking of Tyler and his family is the main thing. It's what this is all about. We all give what we can and that is what makes this community so special. Look at the paralell lines between the Fiero community and the community of Frazee. Both communities pull together for one of thier own in time of need. It's a double dose of what's best in this country. Whether it's money, parts, time, or thoughts and prayers, it is all of the same value. Not one thing has anymore value than the next. It's the sum of everything that matters. I for one am completely overwhelmed by the magnitude at which this has grown. A simple compassionate wish to give a little joy to a young man has grown in leaps and bounds to include thousands of huge hearted people is amazing to witness and I am truly proud and humbled to be a part of this community. Again, to everyone involved - no matter what you have to give, Thanks for all you are doing for Tyler!

For Tyler:

Go Packers!
Fieros Rule!

Somebdoy needs to be logged in to PFF to give a play by play rundown of what's going on and how the project is progressing. In the sprit of the project, I will be elbows deep in a power window project on the XTC and it would be excellent if I could read about in real time, as it happens, about the progress on Tyler's car. Plus I might need some help..... Just a thought.

That's right, he only has one left, get it now!

      I sent this to Oprah, let's see what the big guns can do:

On Oct 29, 2009, it all started out in a post on a car enthusiast site “Got cancer and looking for help”.
http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/104362.html
This is the true story of an 18 year old who is dying of cancer and posted his last wish to see his beloved Pontiac Fiero completed before he passes away. His story was carried in the local paper:
http://www.frazeeforum.com/...&SubSectionID=61&S=1
In the past week, this has turned into a massive effort across the world of people who do not even know Tyler to come together quickly by travelling to Frazee, MN to grant him his last wish. This has all been orchestrated by a soldier in Iraq. Here is the first post from Andy:
“Dude, I am sorry to hear about your situation. And I would have the same feeling about my Fiero. I would want to take it for a drive....if. Do you have a pretty good selection of tools, ratchets/sockets both 3/8" and 1/2" drive, torx bits/drivers, wrenches metric and standard, etc.? I am going to have some time off when I get back home from this place in January. I MIGHT be able to convince the wife for a road trip to help you out for a weekend. I'd be coming from PA, so it will be somewhat of a haul, but I'll do what I can, even if it is to help you get parts. I'll see what I can do, and I am bookmarking this thread so it won't escape my memory.”
See the posts yourself, there now 14 pages of posts in less than a week. People have donated money, parts, travel, and personal time. The team is coming together and will be there the weekend of Nov 21. Follow the posts, it is impressive how something can come together from so many strangers, so far away:
http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/078180.html

Can you get Andy there?

      Rodney Dickman made me cry...

I checked the Paypal account. He discounted the stainless steel vacuum lines to a flat $60.00 for Tyler's car. That is over 50% off of his normal price.
I saw the bill waiting in Paypal, and teared up.

Rodney, it gets said a lot, but I can not stop myself. You are awesome as both a person and a vendor for the Fiero Community. The products you sell are better than OEM in many ways, and you are a great person in your own right.

Thank you from me, and from Pennocks.

On Oct 29, 2009, it all started out in a post on a car enthusiast site “Got cancer and looking for help”.
http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/104362.html
This is the true story of an 18 year old who was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer and posted his last wish to see his beloved Pontiac Fiero completed before he passes away. His story was carried in the local paper:
http://www.frazeeforum.com/...&SubSectionID=61&S=1
In the past week, this has turned into a massive effort across the world of people who do not even know Tyler to come together quickly by travelling to Frazee, MN to grant him his last wish. This has all been orchestrated by a soldier in Iraq. Here is the first post from Andy:
“Dude, I am sorry to hear about your situation. And I would have the same feeling about my Fiero. I would want to take it for a drive....if. Do you have a pretty good selection of tools, ratchets/sockets both 3/8" and 1/2" drive, torx bits/drivers, wrenches metric and standard, etc.? I am going to have some time off when I get back home from this place in January. I MIGHT be able to convince the wife for a road trip to help you out for a weekend. I'd be coming from PA, so it will be somewhat of a haul, but I'll do what I can, even if it is to help you get parts. I'll see what I can do, and I am bookmarking this thread so it won't escape my memory.”
See the posts yourself, there now 14 pages of posts in less than a week. People have donated money, parts, travel, and personal time. The team is coming together and will be there the weekend of Nov 21. Follow the posts, it is impressive how something can come together from so many strangers, so far away:
http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/078180.html

Can you get Andy there?



I fixed it... Please update your post to replace that. Tyler is doing well, and holding on. Regardless of what anyone says, there is ALWAYS hope.

Let me know what your still after, and I'm pretty sure I got time to come help on the 21st. The local members that know me, know i can build one hell of a nice fiero.

If you have a set of GT Tail lights, bring them. We already have the lights to put in, but will want to choose the best set we can. I have already talked with Karen at Frazee Auto Body and let her know that one of our solutions for Delam was to paint the outer part of the light over the black paint.

So this may be an option.

      Wayne Skarie from Hedahls Parts Plus in Detroit Lakes has donated all new Grand Am calipers, rotors and pads for the Grand Am brake upgrade.

Tires Plus in Detroit Lakes is going to inspect the car today to see if any suspension work needs to be done on it. No charge.
The owner of Tires Plus will be in on Monday. I will find out then if they will be able to offer labor assistance with any work that may need to be done. They are considering doing the brakes on the vehicle with the new calipers/rotors.



Synthesis (synssins@gmail.com) MSG #736, 11-07-2009 10:20 AM
      Just ordered from the Fiero Store: K&N Air Filter, Ocelot D.O.T. approved Stainless Braided Brake Lines. New PCV valve (since it was cheap), new PCV/Breather grommets for the valve cover to replace old and damaged, new Left and Right power door lock switches, as we are installing Power Door Locks.

New SPAL aftermarket door lock actuators and wiring will be ordered on Monday from Commando Car Alarms. The alarm will interface directly with this system, and the factory door lock switches will work with them as well. I will be installing all new wiring for these when the doors and dash are apart.

      Just sent this email to "PowerblockTV". If you have some time, write similar emails to every car nut show you can think of. The more the better. Maybe we can take this to a whole nother level!

"I am writing this email to bring awareness to a project that you may be interested in covering. A young man, Tyler Shipman, an 18 year old High School senior in Frazee, MN was diagnosed with an agressive form of Cancer. You can read about Tyler here:

www.caringbridge.org/visit/tylershipman

Tyler is a car enthusiast and owns / drives an 86 Pontiac Fiero. While in the hospital, Tyler logged into a Fiero enthusiast web site:

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/104362.html

He made a simple request for some help to get his Fiero running perfectly. A US soldier in Iraq started this project and you can read about it here:

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/078180.html

In just over a week's time, the Fiero community on Pennocks Fiero Forum has united. These are folks from all over the world, pulling together to give Tyler his wish to get his Fiero up and running in tip top condition. The response from the communuty of Frazee and surrounding areas has been just as impressive. There is a "Build" planned in Frazee set for the weekend of November 21st. Several PFF members from all over the US are traveling to Frazee to overhaul Tyler's Fiero. It is a story that runs true to the car enthusiast and needs some National attention. Complete strangers have donated time, parts, money, travel and thier hearts to make Tyler's dream come true. A website documenting all the efforts has been established and you can visit it here:

http://www.tylerstoy.com/

Please join the Members of PFF, The community of Frazee, MN, and all the suppliers and vendors that are working hard to see that this happens and help us bring some joy and happiness to remarkable young man".

My father's flag from his service was flown over the White House. It is an honor and a privilege that few get.

We do not have a four channel, but we have a 2 channel sub amp that will make it's way up here. I am on the phone with Pro Systems in Detroit Lakes. They have some items they are willing to help with, and I am just waiting to speak with the owner about what they are going to do. I should know soon.

The Kenwood amp would be great Tony. Let me find out what Pro is helping with, and then I can let you know.

Also, thank you for the donation. $30.00 from Amy and Tony towards Tyler's build.

This car is going to ROCK!

      Pro Systems is donating an 8" Kicker CVT Shallow mount sub and the volunteered the speakers all the way around. The speakers are already spoken for, so I asked if they would look into a multi-amp wiring kit.
I will be running by Best Buy today and using my Birthday gift cards to pick up some items.

I still need to find a 4 channel amplifier, and may pick one up on Craigslist, after testing.

The sub is rated at 200 watts RMS, 400 peak. 2.5, the amp you have, do you have a model/specs on it? Want to make sure it is within spec.

Tony, depending on 2.5's amp specs, we may need to hit you up for the Kenwood.

It will be monday night before i can confirm, I am out of state at the moment, the amp sits in it's box in my garage at home. But the Amp is rated at 200 RMS and 600 MAX, but that is to run 2 subs, if bridged it would be more I believe. It is Ultra Linear brand.

Synthesis, the dedication you have put into this project also makes you my brother, and you too will always be family to me.

I spoke to my command about Tyler and flying the flag. I have a pilot taking the flag up on Wednesday!!! Tyler will get the flag, and a certificate that goes along with it showing the details. Once I find something suitable to ship it in, it will be on it's way to Tyler, and he should receive it about two weeks from the day I ship it.

Synthesis, I forgot to mention that I have my wife shipping those front lenses to you now instead of directly to Tyler. Reason being, I don't know how inundated the family is right now with mail, and everything else going on, so I didn't want to burden them further with having to supply those to you. They are being shipped out Monday via Priority Mail, and I will send you the tracking number when my wife sends it to me.

He is on the road right now, trying to secure an amplifier. If I may interject:

Please send any and all parts directly to Nick. He is the designated contact to ship all parts to. He says someone will be at that address all the time, and is able to receive or sign for packages. Chris and I will be driving down from St. Paul in his Fiero, and it is going to be pretty loaded as it is with his bags, mine and all of the stuff he is bringing for the build.

This goes for ALL parts for use in the project. This will ensure all parts are on location locally if something comes up, and someone is not able to make it to the build for any reason.

Price has not been set, but guesstimates are between 12-14 for S/M/L/XL and 14-18 for 2X/3X..

I have procured two amplifiers. I chose to go with an amp here locally because I can test it and witness it works before installing it, plus it was too good a deal to pass up.

A Phoenix Gold Octane R 5.0:4 4 channel amp... Used, but works and looks decent. Will rock the mains...
MTX Thunder TC3001 300 Watt RMS bridged into 2 Ohm.
Both amps, along with a "support package" from the gentleman I bought it from. His name is Dan, I told him why I was looking for the amps, and he cut the price on both to a total of $100.00 including all the extra tools he tossed at me just in case. He also volunteered to come up and help us out with anything we needed.

I stopped at Best Buy with my $45.00 worth of birthday gift cards.. Tim, the manager gave me the employee pricing. 210 worth of merchandise for 57 bucks after tax.

New multi-amplifier installation kit, new mounting kit for the radio, new wiring harness adapter for the radio, new side post battery adapter for the amp kit.

Rockford Fosgate brand, so it is good quality stuff.

Nice!

All wires on the radio harness have been shortened, twisted for a mechanical lock, soldered for an electrical lock, and heat shrinked to look good and protect the circuits.

The main amp cabling is 4 gauge from the battery to the fuse holder, where the 100 amp MAXI fuse clips in. The cable runs to one of the distribution blocks on the right lower side. It splits it into multiple 8 gauge leads, one for each amp.
The ground acts the same way.

A brand new platinum plated battery post adapter is also included.

Holy crap! I just found this thread....

I have a DRIVERS SIDE tail-light lense for an 86+ Fiero GT. Is that the LEFT SIDE???


I just saw this thread... I actually threw it out on the trash bulk pickup pile that's getting picked up on Monday... I didn't even know!

If you guys still do need this, please let me know and I'll ship it first thing Monday!


It's in decent shape, but the black paint underneath the top is a little bit faded, otherwise it has no cracks, and is in good shape.


EDIT: please e-mail me : toddjasp@bellsouth.net

Send it! You will find Nick Butze's address in a couple of posts in here.

We have a tail light assembly on the way, but having options to choose from would be very good for us in case one is better than the other.

Synthesis, the dedication you have put into this project also makes you my brother, and you too will always be family to me.

I spoke to my command about Tyler and flying the flag. I have a pilot taking the flag up on Wednesday!!! Tyler will get the flag, and a certificate that goes along with it showing the details. Once I find something suitable to ship it in, it will be on it's way to Tyler, and he should receive it about two weeks from the day I ship it.

Synthesis, I forgot to mention that I have my wife shipping those front lenses to you now instead of directly to Tyler. Reason being, I don't know how inundated the family is right now with mail, and everything else going on, so I didn't want to burden them further with having to supply those to you. They are being shipped out Monday via Priority Mail, and I will send you the tracking number when my wife sends it to me.


Great job Andy! That is very cool.

Pat

P.S.

Sysnthesis, Andy.....I fixed the links - I could not get them to work either. My bad! I know that the emails I sent were correct. Something in the spacing when I cut & pasted. It's all good now.

Michelle,
Billy's is fine. I don't know the area, so I don't know anything about the restaurants/bars..
I know that several students had expressed an interest in coming out to the "Meet and Greet", so you may want to see if the owner can allow underage people in the bar by marking hands, or bracelets or some such..

Maybe a couple people that are going to be driving there will have vans or large capacity vehicles? Try talking to vikingredbaron. If he's going to be there for the meet and greet and whatbnot, it sounds like he has transportation of some sort? I'm sure all the hotels are around the area, so maybe somebody could be a sort of taxi driver? lol If all else fails, you can fit quite a few people in the bed of my truck

Nope. Not telling. And you don't want the wipers the same color... Trust me. Been there done that. The black is that way for a reason.
Cleaning them up and painting black or powder coating black is suitable... Flat black, as gloss can distract.

Bring em up, I have access to some nice industrial enamel from the machine shop.. Works great, semi-gloss.

      Wow I wish I had seen this sooner. This is a really long thread so I didn't read it all, but if there are any more parts needed let me know. I am located in central Minnesota and have a garage full of parts that I am willing to donate. I have GT body parts, taillights, seats, misc interior parts (tan and gray), poly dog bone, and loads of other parts (some performance parts too). Please let me know if I can help in any way, I'm willing to donate pretty much any of my parts. PM or email me if you think I can help.

I know. :P

Updated Caring Bridge post and photo of the Tyler-man!

Dude, you may not think so, but you look good with the smooth groove you got going on... Lady-killer...


Today was another good day. I survived talking to the school kids... I didn't even fall down or embarass myself, at least I don't think I embarassed myself. It was fun to see all the seniors. The student counsel gave me a gift certificate for a massage... WOW! I am super excited to do this. Jay was a little jealous, but he has a certificate from Scheels so he can go get some hunting "stuff."

Ta mentioned something along the lines of you don't have to know someone necessarily to connect with them. She was talking about all the wonderful people working on Tyler's car, but I think that applies to many other people as well. A lot of us didn't really "know" each other before this, but this situation has really pulled us together as a community. That says something about us as a town. We are good people. I think the biggest point I wanted to make with my discussion with the kids today was that even though we don't understand the big picture here, we don't know what God has planned for Tyler or for us, we have to trust that it is the right thing. God has a perfect route for us all to take. We may get sidetracked along the way, but He always brings us back... He is always waiting for us. As children we might get angry, but don't hold onto that anger too long. It's not productive at all. We may not see the big reason this is happening, but God does. Look already how many lives this has touched in the short time we have been going through this. It is amazing. I also said that I don't want people to think of us as the family with cancer. We are not the family with cancer. Tyler is not the kid with cancer. We are the family who is living, surviving, loving, moving forward. Cancer does not define Tyler. He is his own man, and I think an amazing man.

Tyler again is feeling good today. My shopping list this afternoon was chinese food, toaster strudels, and bean and ham soup from Four Corners. Now isn't that interesting! Rick actually hand delivered ribs, potatoes, salad, and soup.. a feast fit for a king. Needless to say we are all STUFFED tonight and of course the food was spectacular! Thanks Rick!!!

Carter and Cassie got to go on a little date tonight with some of the senior girls. They went bowling and for supper. They had so much fun! It really makes a difference to them that they can still do fun and normal things. Because they both grew up around older kids all the time due to the age difference between Ty and them, they love to hang out with the "big' kids.

Carter, Cassie, and Ty are watching a movie now and I am downstairs by myself. It's important for them to have time together too. I am so blessed to have such good kids. This situation really makes you think about stuff like that. We all have such busy lives and live in fast forward. I said today that right now our family is living in a quiet time and maybe this is helping us "hear" a little better. I would really encourage everyone to find some quiet time with your family, even if it is just an hour. Really appreciate each other. We are by no means some storybook picture. We get aggravated with each other, have disagreements, and sometimes just drive each other plain nuts, but when it comes down to it all the things that make us different also make us family. Cancer has taken a lot away from us, but it has also given us things like perspective.

________________

Daneele, I believe you hit the nail on the head. The bold area in the text above is what I am talking about. There is a reason, a purpose to everything that happens to us. We don't know what He has laid out for us in his planning, but know that it is always for the best. "Perspective" is one of the best things you can gain from any situation. I can't say that I know 100% what you are going through, but I can make an observation. Before this, you had friends and neighbors. You knew people in passing when going about your daily routine in town and the surround areas... But now, now you have family all around you. Some of them are related by blood, many are family now because adversity builds strength and bonds. I salute you and Jay, and especially Tyler for keeping your spirits up through this challenging time.
You are in my prayers.

Or maybe not. I spent a winter in Chicago many years ago--got there in Sept, and left in April--and yeah, it was a little nippy, but the lack of humidity made it seem a LOT warmer than most of the winters I spent in Texas. I remember layin in the snow out by Lake Michigan, changing an in tank fuel pump, and not even feeling cold, except for that howling wind.
but----
There's no such thing as bad weather--just bad clothing.

Western Oklahoma--different story--Worst place I ever worked. Wind like a banshee-humidity-ice--wet nasty snow, and low temps.

Tyler, I have to tell you, it has been our pleasure to bring this dream to you, and if you and your family ever need anything at all, all they have to do is ask. You and your family, is now our family too. Think of it as an adoption. We love you and your family, and will always be there for you guys, Tyler.

God bless you everyone who has contributed money, parts, prayers, and ideas to Tyler's Toy. The pride I have for you all cannot be expressed fully in words. I salute you all, you have my eternal gratitude, and I consider you all my friends.

      This might be a hard one to come by, but does anybody have any kind of wooden flag case out there, so we can put Tyler's flag and certificate in it? I got the new flag today, it takes it's voyage on Wednesday. The pilots have said they will try to get pictures of it flying, I really hope they can. If they do, I will post them up in here. The certificate will also be signed by both pilots as well.

If anyone has a case, please post in here that you do. I can't seem to locate one here, even at the Iraqi shops.

I honestly can't answer that Jeff. Without seeing the car first hand, I have no clue...
I did notice the door on the glove box has some warping... So maybe a new console/glove box in good shape?

Sun Visors if they are good, or at the least, a pair that can be redone in new headliner material beforehand, or if there is a seamstress in town with a serger machine capable of sewing through thick material, the could refinish locally with new material.

We do need two front hubs that have been turned down, but they need to be up there by Wednesday... In time for the new brakes this week...

Tyler, don't fall for that! LOL

I personally can not wait to see what you have picked out in person. The suspense of keeping it a surprise, gives people one more thing to look forward too.

That and all of the posts "Why that color... Why not this color?"...."I personally think it would look better painted blah blah blah.."

I think the color you have picked is going to be AWESOME! I have thought long and hard about doing my Fiero (Also a 1986 GT Fastback) that color as well, as a buddy of mine just had his Corvette painted that color and it looks amazing!

      Actually would be good to have a video stream or film crew around to film the chaos of all the work going on at once.

JohnWPB MSG #888, 11-08-2009 07:58 PM
      I am bringing a good quality webcam & a laptop with me, just depends on Internet availability at the build location. I am also bringing a video camera and Digital SLR so there should be plenty of coverage, as others are bring cameras and such as well.

      When all the filming is done can a copy be sent to me of maybe uploaded ftp ... will do some FLV conversion for the site and they will all be posted for further veiwing
A FLV stream link can be established we just need the right internet connection from the build location... I have the software available and I will find a RTMP server..
Thanks

      Since I am from the Twin Cities also, but unable to ake it upto the Tylers for the build day due to same day as my Nat'l Guard Drill Weekend. I talked my wife out of a little money that we could spare and made a donation instead. If there was a way for me to help get parts to MN for the Thursday the 19th from the east coast I would ofer up some of the space in the cab of my truck since I am a Trucker by trade. Curently heading upto CT for tuesday. But will be back in MN before the weekend of the build.

      Ok, in the anticipation that we hopefully will have Internet at the build location, I have started to work on a page for TylersToy.com.

It will be a live chat window on the right, and a live webcam view on the left of that. I have the page almost done, just need to do some more testing, and upload it to the site. The button for it will not become available till the build starts, as there is no webcam to broadcast as of yet

You realize that if there is a live video view, you WILL crash the network there...

Live video, without a web based multiplexer will kill the bandwidth. As people connect, the bandwidth is split between them. The more that connect, the slower the speed each connection gets.

I would suggest that rather than a true live video, if we are going to allow everyone to see the car prior to the "big reveal" that is planned, we just do a still shot webcam that snaps pictures every 60 seconds and uploads it. Saves bandwidth, and makes it easier to use.

I still think we should skip live video altogether right now.. I had plans to "edit" any photos that were uploaded to remove all signs of the paint color as we worked.. So people would be reaching into the engine bay of this "blotchy white" car...

The big reveal on Sunday will be the photo op, and we can load the photos up then. :P

Hahah I am not talking about a HD video feed! I am talking about a 320 x 240 10 FPS web cam feed (About 20k upload speed). I can EASILY make the feed transmit in Black and White

It doesn't HAVE to be done, but was a thought for those that could not be there.....

my 2 cents:
Yes--that has to take priority over all else--getting the car done.
It won't do much good to have the latest and greatest media if that goal isn't accomplished. Doing all this over a weekend or 2-or 3 is going to be tight.

I have no doubt that you are each very good at what you do, and your dedication is beyond reproach, but
You'll notice on the donation and dream team list--

Murphy has not signed on--his law still prevails.

Exactly. That is why I am calling shops up there to get the mechanicals, such as suspension, brakes and stuff looked at and taken care of before everything else.

I am hoping I can find an auto shop that will do the brake work we need done THIS week... So that we can get the car back to the body shop to be prepped/painted before we get there.

When we actually start on the projects for the car, we should be able to do our installs/upgrades/everything else without a hitch. Alarm/Remote Start is straight forward. The only way you can screw it up is if you are 100% inept.. We have plenty of people who know electrical. that is covered. The stereo system is covered. I am going to retest all of the audio equipment before I get up there. Those will install with no trouble.

The only things I am concerned about are the headlight motor switches on the 84-86 motors during the gear/bumper replacement, and the top end of the V6 when the intake is open to the world and little parts are hanging around..

Chris, both those items are cake. There will be several of us going to the build that have done both headlight motors and upper intakes a gazillion times. If you are concerned and want me to work on the headlight motors before the build, send them out and I will bring them back.

Sadly, the car is 4+ hours from me. I won't be able to get them to you. I know they are easy. The switches are my concern. Primarily, the brushes soldered to the contact arms. I have seen many of those come apart during a rebuild...

When you get up there with it, we won't have time to install it...

But thank you for the offer.
I can also use some of the donation funds to put into an exhaust system if it is needed. The V6 sounds pretty wicked as it is. At least, mine does on the stock muffler with no cat.

Very true. The stock 2.8 exaust sounds very mean.

      I just wanted to reiterate... Ted Anderson from Anderson's Bus Service has agreed to taxi us around town while we are there for any reason.
When things get closer, I will be posting a contact number in the first post. Call that number at any time for any reason, and they will come get you, and take you where you need to go.

They will also run to Fargo to pick you up or drop you off if needed, but there are MANY people in the area that have already volunteered to do that.

Please, do not hesitate to give Anderson's a call and say "THANK YOU" to Ted. Taxi service is very beneficial for those of us who won't have vehicles there.

I'll have my Fiero, assuming it survives the trip. I can fit one in the passenger seat, one on their lap (I know this from experience), and 2.3 children in the trunk. Please don't ask how I know that. lol

I see I`m not the only one who has had 2 in passenger seat !!!

Never had anything but snowmobile engines and spare tire in trunk tho.

That makes me feel a lot better !!!

Yeah, keep us posted on who will need rides.

I am in Fargo

Chris,
Is there anything else we could use from Jon's collection of parts?



I just checked and I have a V6 adjustable poly dog bone, aftermarket front sway bar (I believe it's an Addco) and an original HHP rear sway bar (red) with poly endlinks. The front sway bar is green but I can paint it black or paint it red to match the rear however you like. If you guys think you can use any of these, please take them I would love to donate them to the cause.

Jeff-
Call me this week when you get a chance. I am pretty free all week/weekend so we can definitely work something out.

If you got anything big that needs to get up here, let me know I'm making a quick run to the twin cities on Wednesday, and can haul stuff back if needed. If anyone else has stuff in the twin cities area and is concerned with shipping them up to Frazee, let me know asap. I can hold onto the stuff until the weekend of the 21st, and bring it to the party

Nereson Chevrolet Oldsmobile Cadillac: Jeep Inc in Detroit Lakes has agreed to do the brake work for us.
I called The Fiero Store and asked them to expedite shipping on the brake lines.

Nick, those should be in on Wednesday at the latest.

PLEASE unbox the brake lines, and take them in to the dealership ASAP. Give them to John, the Service Manager. Make sure you mention my name, and that it is for Tyler's Fiero. My name is pronounced "Cleaver", just spelled funny. Chris Kliewer

I have called Frazee Auto Body and Glass, Dave is out today, but will be in tomorrow. I gave them some quick instructions on the body panels, so that the car can go to service while the rest of the body panels that have been removed are being prepped.

Dave will call me back tomorrow. I have also asked them to do a quick once over on the Calipers, and paint them up to make them look good.
