I hope that means you're updating your build threads..
Where did you get this engine in Europe? I figured they'd be hard to find.
Centimeter by centimeter...and month by month Actually I did start 2 topics earlier about the engineswap but I was soo slow they went to the archives I found the engine more than 2 years ago at a dutch "american cars" junkyard (tip by ducattiman). Donor was a german 1998 grandprix GTP. A lot of time went into gathering parts, rebuilding and modding...hope to get the Fiero back on the road in the spring..
I bought Mr. Mikes set covers and seat heaters so the seat should be nice. Can't wait til the engine swap is completed. Been a long time coming hope all goes well. A new motor and updated seats should make for a good start to this driving season. The sunroof leak video i saw on youtube will be the best of all. Had a person tell me that there wasn't much that could be done. Man that made my day.
Yesterday actually, but I finished up installing most of the performance sound components into my 86GT. got the wiring all routed as well as the overhead console with slider. Just waiting on my new sub from Rodney to arrive to finish up the install. Pretty funny, I was testing everything out with the original factory sub speaker still in the enclosure. Well things were functioning more or less, but sounded like crap (to be expected with a 20+ year old speaker. Well when I took the enclosure apart and took the sub out, I had to laugh.... the cone of the sub is seperated from the outer ring around the entire periphery, and there was about a 2" x 1/2" chunk of the cone missing out at the edge in 1 area.
stared at the 87 coupe, about all i can do right now. since i widened the wing on it, i keep wishing i could widen the rear some too, like a back half imsa or something. have to eyeball it till i get an idea.
cleaned out the passenger compartment, front compartment, and trunk on my 84. Removed: 1 axe 2 bushog blades 2 bushog blade bolts & nuts 1 chainsaw 1/2 roll of barbedwire towchain 5 gal diesel can about 25 lbs of nuts bolts, nails, and fence staples. 4 old pairs of gloves 1 'comealong' a whole crapload of reciepts for the tax guy-most not readable 2 funnels most of my tools repair manual for my Leyland spare fuel filters for the backhoe about 20 lbs of dried mud from floorboard 1/2 doz pine cones TSC catalog a bunch of other farm related stuff......
Been a tuff year for Fieros round my place.

Took stock of parts for my next project. If anyone knows where I can find an 85-86 SE stick shift (prefer a V6 but I'll take a 4) for under 1,000 let me know!
1 set of HPP performance sway bars 1 7730 ECM 1 Suzuki ITB- modified to fit a LLO.....if I get a L4 1 Wilwood brake master cylinder- will replace the clutch master cylinder, still need to find a decent slave cylinder 1 GT rack and pinion- modified for 2 turns lock to lock- don't ask, it was VERY expensive.
