Installed a pair of 3 in 1, 30w RMS tweeters in the dash today.(actually have 3 sizes of tweets in each enclosure. Stereo sounds amazing. Finally I can hear those missing notes in my music. Tweets are aimed directly at the driver and Passenger.

Ummm, well.... it was easier to just go out and buy another one than to work on the ones I have.

Picked up an '86 GT today (technically it was yesterday). I discovered when I brought it home that it has the premium factory sound system in it (with the factory subwoofer under the dash on the passenger side). Sweet!

If the sub is not blown now, be prepared for it to blown soon. You can get a replacement from Rodney Dickman or carefully searching E-Bay. My 88GT with Premium sound only lasted till 98,000 miles. I opted to simply add another inline amp, and run an 8" ADS A8S Full Competition sub. Sounds great and takes up very little space using one of the club speaker boxes. If you would ever come to a meeting I am sure we could take one from the drawing and just sell it to you for like 10 bucks. Holds an 8" sub very nicely under the heater box way back there so passengers won't even notice a major loss in leg-room.

David, I'm too embarrassed to mention when it was that one of my Fieros was actually driveable. It's been a long while. That's why I haven't attended a meeting.

Maybe the acquisition of this GT will inspire me to keep at least one Fiero running. Even this one is going to require some work, but at least I was able to drive this one home from the seller's place (unlike the last two that I had to have towed home).

Mike.... Not exactly holding out. I have been updating my CarDomain page every other week. The widebody is the biggest visible change, but there will be a 50 lb weight reduction (mostly in the rotating mass of the wheels), a 4 inch chin air spliter added to the front for down force and several other goodies. Click the link in my signature for details.

You still have that beautiful white fastback? Done anything to it lately? (getting back to the thread )

well, 5am this morning I started to clean up my mess in the engine bay that I created when trying to figure out my starting issue. alot of re-soldering wires and mounted loom safely away from crossover pipe, then I started cutting a piece of steel to work with my shifter as I screwed up the original from rock crawl that seemed to be cut wrong because it hit the crossover pipe when in any gear but reverse - new shifter bracket, shifter works now with modified throw lever.
oh, and I worked a 9 hour day at my job also.... time for bed and up again early as this car has to be driving before settlement on the house ~

Well...I still have the white fastback...dont know that it's so beautiful anymore. Stricker and I are entering the WOW show in Omaha this weekend, and I've been spending just about every night the past week and a half trying to get it cleaned up. I'm finding all kinds of little "surprises" that I hadn't seen before...nicks and scrapes, cracks in the paint, etc. The "restoration" I did a few years ago is starting to show it's age a bit. Today was "clean under the front hood" day. Tomorrow is "clean up the interior and install the new Mr. Mike's" day...maybe I'll have a couple of pictures to post, if I'm not up until midnight yet again, trying frantically to get it done before John shows up on Thursday with his trailer...

After class today I jacked up the rear and took the tires off to see what exactly was going on with my rear brakes. They won't release and I assume it's because you don't get everything needed with them from auto zone...one comes with pins, sleeves, bushings, and hand brake cable. Other comes with, well...nothing. Berretta conversion here I come, although the beretta calipers at autozone don't come with bushings either

Recently bought some extra engine grills for the Fiero off Ebay. After cutting the extra vent louvers off from the bottom side, I've been in the process of painting them a gloss black. I've been using the 500 degree engine paint and let me tell you that getting a perfect finish is very hard. After 5 coats I reverted to regular Rustolium gloss paint. "Top side only with this paint." I don't want it to flake off because of heat. I can also get the paint in a quart form to spray it with my compressor sprayer. That will give me more of a professional look.

I spent all day sorta cleaning up and checking over the '86 Fiero GT that I bought earlier this week. Considering it was only a few degrees above freezing, I thought I did pretty good sticking with it all day.

I was disappointed though that I've only found 30 cents in the car so far. In some previous Fieros I've bought I've recovered close to five bucks in coins. Guess I'll have to remove the console and check down around the base of the shifter for more spare change. There's usually a gold mine down there (as well as under the driver's seat where I also haven't looked yet).

Thanks Rob. It was kinda funny how this all worked out. A couple of weeks ago I posted about how expensive Fieros now appear to be in the Vancouver area, and then a week later this GT (with a ton of options) comes up for a price I couldn't refuse. I didn't even want another Fiero, but I would've kicked myself if I didn't buy this car.

Rebuilt my exhaust system. Again.
Had to reinstall the cat for an upcoming smog check.

Replaced the patched-together Ocelot system with a new one.
(Tip... If you plan on changing configurations, use band clamps instead of U-bolt crush clamps. They're kind of expensive, but they're sturdy and reuseable. They also don't screw up your pipe couplings.)

l also modded my crossover pipe to add the additional 1/4 inch that it needed to meet the FOCOA header collectors properly. Temporarily done with a slip joint and yet another band clamp, until I can get it welded.

It's all quiet (actually too quiet with the cat) and "un-leaky" now.

What did I do?

I bought my first Fiero today, an 85 SE V6 4 speed. It's sitting in the driveway awaiting a thorough going over to figure out what all needs attention.

On the test drive, and the drive home from picking it up, we've so far identified:

Right CV joint
Driver side mirror motor
Sunroof latch
Temperature gauge
Battery
Trim paint

The body panels are generally in very good shape, one ding on a wheelwell, and a crack near the sunroof, nothing major. This is intended to be a project to work on with my son, who will ultimately have this as his daily driver. No big plans, just strip it down, clean it up, rebuild the engine, work through the electrical germlins, and update the brakes and suspension.

Cheers

The Radiator Fan quit running on my '84 SE, traced it to a worn out connector on the fan plug wire. Man was it ever a pain in the rear to find a new one to replace it. Located one at RockAuto and ordered it up. This after I tested everyting else out including replacing the radiator fan relay, restablishing grounds and all.

had to pull the exhaust downpipe, muffler resonator tip assembly to weld up a crack where the splitter to each muffler meets the muffler on the drivers side. It happened when one of my dog bone mount points busted allowing the motor to move around a bit and caused the system to flex too much

Sat back and let everyone enjoy the fruits of my labors for the past two weeks....



And then, brought home a little hardware to add to the collection, as did others. From left to right, jstricker, musicman_L7, and myself.

I'll bet if we asked Chrissy, she might have a different viewpoint. *snicker*

You get your new display home okay? It didn't hit Chrissy in the side of the head going around a corner, did it?

Yes, we both made it home just fine. The weight from those oak stantions and sandbags sure made my car handle differently though. The new display and the stantions are currently residing in the middle of the shop floor. I'll move them up to the loft this afternoon. I managed to keep the car clean up until I came into Harlan (about 13 miles from home). After that the roads were really wet, but without any fresh rain coming down the car got pretty dirty. Maybe it will get driven more now that it's dirty...

I forgot to get the camera out of the Chrissy's car, so I'm not able to put up my pictures yet.

I came on home last night, got home about 2:00 am and Sandi had locked the house. The spare key wasn't where it was supposed to be and I didn't have one so I had to call her and tell her to come let me in. Thought I was going to have to sleep in the shop, now I'm considering a bed in the gooseneck "just in case". Had a good time this weekend, not sure if or when I'll ever be back to the WOW show in Omaha with a car, but you never know.......................... Maybe next year I'll take the race car up
