Repaired my headlamp bezel rings, flushed and bled the clutch, and set the base timing to specs. She is running very fine now.
I am now having trouble with the starter circuit, and need to figure that new problem out. That is for tomorrow!

Built a cradle dolly. Probably add a few more things to it later on, but for now it is working great. Should help me get my engine mounts made up, as well as make future cradle drops as easy as possible.

Today I replaced one of the broken brake lines on the Indy. Went to bleed it and the bleeder on the caliper broke. I put the wheel back on and lowered the car down. I'll work on that some other time. Maybe I'll wash the 88 later when it cools off outside.

Started and almost finished dropping the cradle on my 88. Just need to disconnect the E brake cable, drain the coolant, remove the front cradle bolts and lift it up.

I've had an issue with my temperature gauge being into the red before the fan comes on. Today I let the car idle until the fan kicked on while reading the temperature with a different temperature gauge. The fan kicked on, the temperature gauge in my cluster was pegged in the red, the second gauge I had hooked up showed 190 degrees. I guess the gauge in the car is not reading correctly. Oh, and I washed it today.

I know this isn't the thread for it, but clean your connections at the gage.

And I washed my baby to day!

I washed her. First time in the 2 years we have had it. It's hard to wash this car because it leaks so bad...you have to be real careful how you spray it.

Installed the 88 GT seat covers that I bought from tomanyfieros, about 5 years ago.
They were damn near perfect, just like he described them.

I actually unboxed them and ran them through the washing machine a couple of months ago. Been trying to work up the motivation to swap them, ever since.

They were much easier than I remembered, after having done one set of Mr. Mikes. Took about 2 hours per seat.
Unfortunately, I ran out of hog rings just as I was finishing. Ended up making 4-5 hog rings out of four-penny nails.

Installed noise dampening insulation in a stripped interior on an 88 Mera. I soon hope to start the process of reassembling everything in the relatively near future and then on to paint.

Installed a new clutch slave and bled the system.
Rust killed my old slave...

I just drove the Fiero, and what a difference! The clutch releases in the top third of travel!

I bought some parts from AutoZone. A new (reman) Cardone distributor, cap and rotor. The distributor goes into storage if/when the old distributor takes a dump.. They had it in stock unlike the last time where they had to send into Orlando to get one. They sent the wrong one in twice!.
