I decided to rip out the entire interior of the Formula today. I have been contemplating a color change from gray to beechwood and I finally decided to gut it and start looking for beechwood stuff. It all needed to come out anyway (even if I were to keep it gray)......everything was dirty, ripped, cracked and/or faded. The front lip of the dash was actually glued to the bottom of the windshield (under the seal!). Whoever installed the windshield did a bad job. It literally tore the vinyl off the dash and left a 1" x 18" chunk stck to the glass!

I also discovered that the rear window had been removed at some point in the past and not really installed properly. They used the wrong sealant and I can almost remove the glass by pushing on it! Crazy stuff.

I knew this would be a long term project car, but I had no idea so many things would need attention.

**EDIT because I own page 117!**

All I did to my Fiero today was look wantingly out my office window at the garage, through the rain. Not being able to drive it is no fun. :-/

Tried to make TunerPro work propoerly so I can continue tuning the engine. Not totally successful as the INT and BLM values are not what they are supposed to be...

I also repainted the small SS emblems on the front grille and fenders (black backing plate).

Last night, I loaded my Fiero on a tow dolly so that KEV could take it back to his place to swap the transmission out.

Itching to get back on the road with it.

Earlier today, I assembled and installed my new (home made) hood hinges.





They're attached to the front impact beam (rather than the stock location) for a good reason.

Hmm...so very minor and unimportant. But I replaced the rear bulbs for my fastback. Then I saw TLG and their LEDs and am thinking of getting them.

While replacing and wiping down my taillights(yes I'm obsessive compulsive when it comes to a clean car) I noticed my car didn't have the recall weather strip. So I picked up one from a forum member today.

My mechanical skills are minute, but I plan on stretching myself very soon.

SSN669chris:

Off topic but can you take a picture of the underside of you car on the lift. I'd be interested in seeing hoe the lift lines up with the lifting points. How do you like that particular type of lift? How's the stability?

Thanks

Going to buy a fan switch to replace the one that died the other day. This will be a $10 autozone switch that is just so I can drive the car until the one I ordered from Rodney shows up. Will also be ordering parts to replace the exhaust manifold gaskets in the next week or two. What fun.

Could they have found a tighter more clustered spot to put the fan switch? Just finished changing it out and was surprised it worked as long as it did since the PO put Teflon tape on the threads when they installed the fan switch last time.

Got bored and painted the stock exhaust, one less dirty looking thing that bothers me when I look under it, just needs to hold up long enough until I do a 3800 swap and do stainless exhaust.
