Removed the side cover from the transmission and replaced the TCC solenoid and 3rd gear pressure switch. That was a bit harder than it first appears, a lift would have been helpful!

Yesterday I replaced the stock 4.9 starter with a new Allente starter. That solved my problem with it not starting when warm. After a test drive, I started tackling taking off all the body panels of my parts car. My future plan is to do a panel off paint job on them then just switch the panels on to my car.

I just scored a Fiero Store poly dogbone at a local junkyard for $5, so I installed that today on my GT. It's nice not having the sloppy, worn out rubber bushings anymore!

Took apart my headlight motor assembly. The green bumbers were completely deteriorated and had worn down parts of the plastic gear. Time to order a rebuild kit.

Received this photo for proof that it was dropped off at the Jim & Son's Transmission shop by one of my employees. Hopefully I can fly back to get it next month!

** Edited to add url for Jim & Sons **
They've always done top notch work on anything I've taken them. First time taking the Fiero there.

Installed new dogbone. (black rubber from Rodney) Noticeably tightened up the engine movement.

Installed new dew wipes for the very first time. I had been putting this off after reading what a PITA it can be. It went fine, but took me much longer than many more experienced had told me it would.

I recommend using Rodney's tool and a magnetic pick up. Both came in handy.

In hopes of finding a "nice" rad saddle, and not having any luck, I decided to just make one.
Ooh, aah, stainless too! No crusty crap here any more.

I popped out the distributor and changed the O-ring as well as the pick-up coil. The ICM still works fine, so I just cleaned it up and put on some fresh heat sink compound. I also lubed the door hinges and clutch pedal.....both were squeaking incessantly. I can't believe how nice the doors open now.....who knew?!?

Un-buried it and got it ready to roll a temporary cradle under it so I can move it out of the garage for my motor build. Fixing to do a 350 swap.

(Sorry for the blurry pix. One handed picture taking.)

CAT heat shield rubbed through the A/C line. Got it welded up, new orifice tube, accumulator, O rings and R134. 57° A/C yesterday. Good to go for now.
(Beware of previously converted R134 systems. Easy O rings were replaced, but I found some that weren't.)

Reinstalled my clutch master cylinder and installed a new slave cylinder. I was struggling to bleed the system before...it was sucking air into the slave cylinder. Had the whole system bled, by myself, in a few minutes. Feels great! Having said that, I'll consider this a cheap temp fix ($16) since I'm going to be replacing both slave and master cylinders with Rodney Dickman parts soon.

It was previously registered in Maryland, which requires a front tag. Delaware doesn't so I have a clean nose except for the holes
