I finally bit the bullet and tore apart the engine and all the accessories to fix the blown head gasket on my 88 notchie. Took me the better part of 8 hours without a break to tear it down, prep and repair the head and gasket, and then to put it all back together again. What a PITA! I guess I can't complain too much as it was 50 degrees in SLC today in the middle of winter and I never thought I was going to get a chance to do it until the end of spring if not later due to the cold. The duke is in the back yard under a cover (her blanket) and normally this time of year she'd be covered with snow. Got to love it. Now if only the weather can hold up for me to get her inspected and tagged!

I finished re-upholstering my first seat today and I'm damn proud of it (mostly because I had good enough sense to listen to the reccommendations of those on PFF)! I know it's been said before, but you can't go wrong with Mr. Mikes. If I can do this and it turns out this nice, then it's definitely the product that he puts out and not my ability. Mr Mikes has produced these great seat covers and if you can follow instructions, you can get the same results.

This past 2 weeks I added the rest of the 3 sail panels for $55 each special from fiero store to my 3 GT's. Installed a woodgrain trim kit to all my bezels,switches,doors etc. from BD Trims to the interior of my black '86 gt along with tan ostrich seat covers,new tan $5 floormats from walmart and removed those awful looking stickon "side scoops" that were infront of the front tires .Replaced tan 4 spoke steering wheel with a nice looking 3 spoke in a trade from Indyguy888.Placed clear allweather tape over the cracks in the lens on top of tail lights till i can find new ones after rinsing off road dust.Added a tall wing with builtin LED brake light from Danyels Black Window fiero.Also added a red trim kit to my red '88 2.5 D.D.Tax refund is almost gone after my wife bought a tablet.Damn her frivolous spending! oh, and i added a cell phone holder to the '86 GT.

Past week I've been cutting mine up, tomorrow we have torches to cut the rusted out bolt heads hold the crossmember in place then the rest is scrap. Poor Fiero has seen better days, hate to do this but I just couldn't in good consciense give this car away thinking someone might try to put it back on the road.
Most parts will be going onto another 87 frame I have in good shape.

I installed a fresh powder coated hood strut in my IMSA. I also cranked over my 87 GT, the first time since June after my Power Tour road trip. It fired right up. I needed to uncover it seaching for my California Duster which was buried under the front deck. I dusted off the IMSA and will take it to a nearby cruise in this afternoon.

I got my Ram SRT10 out of the garage yesterday, drove to my storage building 20 minutes away, and drove both of my fieros to warm them up and excercise their systems.
IT WAS A GREAT WAY TO SPEND A NICE AFTERNOON!!

I was getting ready to take the 88GT to a Widetrack Warrior show on Saturday, so I planned to take the car over and fill the tank No start, no juice. I replaced the battery 2/4/12 with a Duralast battery. I put my battery charger on it and nothing. I pulled the battery out and back to Auto Zone. They checked it out and it was dead. They replaced it, and I installed it (what a PITA) and the car fired right up. The car seems to be running a lot better also, than with the other Duralast one (?).

The last battery was a six year old Walmart.

Trying to get motivated to work on my 88 coupe that's in the garage. I have new plugs, wires, dist. cap and rotor, ignition module, front lowering springs, front lowering ball joints, side scoops and a 13" brake kit to install. I want to get it ready for spring because I've been really missing driving it.

Changed the oil in my 88 GTyesterday. Found the PO's quick lube place had left the filter loose, hence the oil leak. Today I installed Rodney Dickman 1" lowering ball joints. Tomorow, is D day for installing a new rack bushing, a first for me. Then off to the alignment shop.

Over the weekend I finished re-upholstering my seats and I steamed them (to take out some of the wrinkles) and I put them back in today. I then took it out for a 30 minute drive just to get the feel of it again. Since we have warmer temperatures here in Indy, I had planned to drive it to work tomorrow and show some of the interested co-workers my seats and the lambo doors , but it's supposed to rain, so that will have to wait until another day.

1984 2M4

Worked on the steering column yesterday. Tore it down and rebuilt. I had two concerns: the wiring for the wipers were chaffed/exposed inside and the turn signal stalk wires damaged as well. This task was accelerated by reviewing jazzman's steering column write-up and buddy craigs videos on youtube. THANK YOU BOTH!

I made a little change to the wire routing for the turn stalk and ported a hole in the back end of the switch to alleviate any further clipping to the wires. Will make it pretty later on. My only concern is how to determine when putting the wheel back on how deep it should go? Does the back meet the top of the ignition key shroud?

some photos of work: [img]https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3098565674486.138127.1574472295&type=3&l=668573966b[/img]

I installed new black seat belts. This will be the first time since I bought the car in 1999 that it has had three point seat belts. When I bought it, a previous owner had cut the belts into lap-belts. Kinda scary at highway speeds only having a lap-belt. The new black belts look fantastic against the saddle interior and will complement the black headliner really well after it is installed.

Where did you get your black seatbelts? Im doing a full black interior conversion also.. Thanks Benton.

Pulled out the carpet out of the passenger side and noticed some rust and holes to the floor. Took some aluminum, siliconed around the holes, riveted the pieces into place and painted the entire passenger side floor board with tractor implement paint.

I got my black seat belts from PartsTrain. They are NOT OEM, but I found they do the job very well. And they are black! In any case, I found the the only fitment issue I had was that the new seat belt hardware was incompatible. The new fasteners had different threads/size than the stock hardware. Rather than drill and tap the frame to accommodate new hardware, I simply reamed the new seat belt mounting holes to the stock fiero hardware and proceeded with installation. All factory paneling fits in the proper place without any cutting or refitting. I can post pictures if ya'll would care to see them.

I checked the underside to see if it was rusting, then just sat in it for awhile to remember what it looked like. feb 15 marked 2 years since it ran last maybe this will be the year I can get it fixed. would love to fix the things i wanted before it died like new wheels, ect. but wife says no money for a car that does not run. maybe a job will open up then let the buying begin! before it turns into a rock

I installed a clutch and slave master cylinder. Put new bolts on rear sway bar and regreased the Polly bushings.tomorrow I will put ti back together and go for a short ride then its time for a wash. Clutch parts from rodney d and the one man leader was great for priming them both up with fluid. Time for sleep

I got my black seat belts from PartsTrain. They are NOT OEM, but I found they do the job very well. And they are black! In any case, I found the the only fitment issue I had was that the new seat belt hardware was incompatible. The new fasteners had different threads/size than the stock hardware. Rather than drill and tap the frame to accommodate new hardware, I simply reamed the new seat belt mounting holes to the stock fiero hardware and proceeded with installation. All factory paneling fits in the proper place without any cutting or refitting. I can post pictures if ya'll would care to see them.



Would love to see pictures.. \m/ =)

Was the reaming hard to do to fit the old hardware?

Today, I went from this:



to this:



All I can say is this Mr. Mike is a miracle worker! Thanks again. Also, I need to make good on delivering seat belt pictures:


This is a picture of the seat belt installed. I've installed it using the original mounting hardware. The only modification that I made was that I drilled the hardware holes on the belt buckle and retractor to 9/16" to fit the Fiero bolts (not hard at all; the hardest part was rounding up a 9/16" bit with a 3/8" shank). The upper and lower belt mounting points did not require any modification. The picture does not show the interior panel in place, but I've already test fit is and there is no clearance issue. In full disclosure, however, I should that, in the future, I'm going to move the retractor box closer to the floor and modify the interior panel (with fiberglass) to accommodate it. Should be fun!

Changed two tires out of four on my newest vehicle. I started to replace worn tires installed on Chromadoras with newer ones installed on Koeig Reins. That was when I discovered that the new car had locks on the front wheels. Now I need to come up with a way to get the damn things off soon!.
