Hey!

I am getting my fiero back on the road (slowly) and got the engine purring like brand new, with 150psi compression each cylinder, new camshaft, distributor, cap, rotor, wires, pushrods, everything... she is running like a champ!

now I need to fix:
Transmission (going for a TH440 swap)
Body Paint
Brakes
Wing Risers
Tail Light
Interior
Seats
Sunroof
Power Windows (they go slow)
Lock Actuators (ugh they dont work right!)
Tires
Brake Lines
Spot Rust Repair
Frame Dings
Coolant Tube Brackets
a lot....

Now this is a lot to do on my own... Is there ANYONE out there who wants to help a fellow Fiero owner in doing this? Anywhere in the Maine, NH, Vermont, Massachusetts area? I have only seen a VERY select few fieros around here, its rare for me to spot one (my ugly junkyardlooking fiero catches lots of eyes, probably people going UGH ITS SO BROKEN!)

Uggg... Would normaly love to help another Fiero owner in my area. But new baby is taking up most of my free time. Not to mention I am right in the middle of my busy season at work...

About the lock actuators; Just clean the tracks and re-lube w/ fresh grease. Also, while you have the door panel off, douche the hell out of the lock mechinism <sp? from the inside; lock and unlock as you do... when I replaced my dew-wipes, I did this and now they work like new. Before, I would have to hit the button 5 times to get them to lock/unlock...

its all right man, family first! and thanks for the info about the lock actuators! I will be sure to do that! For now I need to get the thing drivable, which means, find and repair the transmission leak (Governor housing cap I think) and find out why its overheating the trannie fluid.
