For the ventilation when the new dash is in place. Made of some ventilation parts and polyester clothing...

Then I made a carbon fiberplate. No clearcote needed.

After some work with the carbonfiber plate.

Left som space over the stereo. For a choptop dekal or something fun?

Yearly inspection done. Only thing I need to fix is the fact that I have to open the door when using the E-brake.
Only need to get rid of some material in the door skin to get the car to pass. But I have 4 week to do this.
It´s OK to drive until then.

Got them from a guy here in sweden for about $300. But the struts need to be replaced.

Drove my car 300 km with a V5 engine in the back yesterday. I lost one cylinder and the engine sounded like a 4 stroke...

Found the fault today after removing the decklid.
Cylinder #4 (middle back) had lost the spark wire and it was laying on the exhaust. When the decklid was of I replaced the sparkplugs and checked the PVC grommit as well. Also changed the distrubitor and rotor + adjusted the timing a bit.

Thats it!

I am sick of this car...
Will turn my back until the car stops ****ing with me.
Ever since I started to change to poly bushings the car have given me a pain in the ass.
I have driven the car 3 days in rain this year and that might be it?

I might get back to this thread in 30 days or let it go to the arcives...

I am still alive... And nobody missed me?
Thinking of starting a new thread.

I got some things since the last post.
-87 GT without engine and gearbox, might be a choptop projekt. Talked to the man that made the one I have today and he said OK.
A F40 6speed gearbox Not sure if I will keep it. I might sell and get me a Volvo S60 2,5T engine and a gearbox from the same car.
Some TransAm brakes from -03. Calipers and rotors. Front and rear.
A new daily driver... Volvo S60 2,4T with 250Hp and 400Nm
+ some more parts.

Hi

Got some brakes for upgrade and another car to start working on. Cant do everything on one car...
Brakes from a TransAm -03

And a GT -87 without engine.

Some LED lights

And the Chrismas order from Fierostore

In the meantime I will keep the Camaro V6 in the choptop and I might sell the choptop so I have the money for the next projekt.

I am working on the door skins. Tryed Bonocell and its so easy to work with. I can use knife, dremel and sandpaper and get the exakt lines I want. Will post some pics when I get home from work.

Also started to take away some parts from my next projekt car so my friends car can be ready to drive soon. There will be a big fiero meet 31 may with over 200 cars invited. Hope that about 100 of the 300 in Sweden will show up.

I have finally started for real and have a goal. A car show in April 2009.
I will do updates here http://www.fieroforum.se/fo...opic.php?f=10&t=1342
Swedish fiero forum but there are lots of pics and if you want to know something just ask.
So far I have tested my hood with Stage II scoops and filled gap up by the wipers.
I am working on the F355 front and trying to make everything fit OK, but there are a lot of work for that. Will update with pics daily I hope.
