I picked up my IMSA from the shop. I had the AC fixed...a wiring issue in the control panel.. I had the ignition column lock cylinder replaced (it was sticking and not rotating to start) Also the parking brake control assembly replaced, all new cables earlier than the handle would pull up but not engage the brakes. I had them replace the spark plugs as I had no idea of their age. Plugs were AC1, the first generation plugs by AC Delco..

Seldom does a day go by that I'm not doing something related to the Fiero.
(I'm slowly preping the body for home brew paint job.)(Also refurbishing brackets, etc as I remove them, as the license frame below.)

But recently I've been working on getting the belt molding refurbished, not a 100%, but at least it's a 100% better than it was...

Since I have antique tags, and limited driving that I can do.... I decided to replace the license plate with this one.



Please note the small change... it's says "We Built" not "We Build".
Think that just about says it all... at least to me...

finally fixed my loose steering column. it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be thanks to jazzman's thread in the tech section and because i fixed the same problem on a jeep not to long ago. I cant wait for the weekend so i can go for a cruise and not have to deal with a column that feels like its about to fall off.

Solved a hard to find oil leak.

It was the oil dipstick tube's little o-ring.

The coin is a Canadian dime, same size as the american's (but is worth more these days)

I love that cupholder center piece. Did you make or buy it?

Here's my contribution to my son's 88 Formula: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nortyd/6006953473/
A newly machined dogbone. I mistakenly ordered the wrong bushings on Ebay and rather than return them, I drew up a replacement and machined it

TXGOOD makes the cupholders. He is a member on here and you can find his for sale thread in the mall. That dogbone mount looks amazing. You could be selling those on here as well if the price were right. I would be interested in one for sure!

Not so much understanding but extremely tolerant. And I said the faster I sell this stuff, the sooner we get that room back. So she decided to help clean, take pics and so on. Now she has become my part time apprentice. How can I lose?

Installed new Formula decals on the doors, messed up the passenger side.

Took a silver paint pen to the faded Pontiac Rear Fascia Logo (Fierostore Quality ), came out more white than silver... who knows if it'll come off with the next car wash...

replaced the motor mount on my 84 duke (it finally succumbed to the mighty power of the duke ;-)) ok, that and 27years and an oil leak :-) getting the dog bone back in place was the hardest part.
also reinstalled the inner fender wells in the rear and switched the oddball rim so that they all match.

Charged batteries on two cars and am in the middle of an engine swap on two more. The first swap should be completed by the end of the month and the second about one month later.
