Its early today but yesterday I fixed a long standing but simple problem on my 3800SC series III. When I had measured and fabricated the throttle cable bracket the N* TB it would only open to 90% . Since I use a huge N* TB it still gave enough air to match the OEM TB flow but what concerned me most was the throttle posittion relative to the PE numbers in the program. So I measured up again, cut and welded the bracket together and bolted her back on. Now it is perfect. When the pedal is now to the floor the throttle position is now right at 100%. ( measured mechanically and with the scanner) While my throttle cable bracket is a fixed position unit, for new 3800 swaps, I would highly recommend fabricating an adjustable cable bracket so that any cable stretch can be compensated for.

Every Fiero I've owned has had a factory sunroof (moonroof), and none of them had any real leaking issues. My current 87 GT started leaking a little last summer, due to the plastic washers used on the glass, dry rotting and breaking apart. Got new ones from the Fiero Store, and she closes up tight again.
Today I left work early to pamper the car a bit and give her alittle diet I cut off about 20 pounds of rust and dirt and made the swiss cheese trunk whole again! I also put the headlight back together and tested my puck idea for the motor so far it is working perfect and verry quiet if the material I used holds up to alot of future testing I will give everybody the info on were to get it so far so good!!
Ya the welding sucks I ran outa gas!!!

I made it so the top comes off and a subwoofer panel just bolts on then if I go on a trip and dont want the car broke into i just remove the sub and put the top on u see in the pic, far as cupholders I am working on it the bottom panel is also removable to get at computer plug I may make cupholders inside of the cover and then make another cover for when i dont want cup holders lol its a transformer council!
I woke up this morning, and it was clear skys, sunny, and a nice 75 degrees out. So i decided to change Fiero's oil.. This made Fiero happy.. So i called my friend (who happens to be a pretty girl, which is always nice.) and me and Fiero picked her up and went for a nice 2 hr drive.. Had a lot of fun laughing everytime we got stared at by someone as we passed by.. One of my favorite things about my Fiero is every single time i take it out, i get peoples attention wherever i go.. .. Fiero likes the attention too, it makes her feel pretty..
See, shes smiling.

I am installing 87 front springs in the front of my 88 and 88 front springs in the rear of my 88. I had the front springs cut but they were to low. So I will use the 87 springs at a 1" higher position to see what happens.

Fabbed up a short throw - short shifter for the My V8 Coupe. For grins, I installed it in my Formula. I think it will stay in the Formula.
Added about 3/8" to the bottom of the shifter then shortened the top about 2/3". It is short and tight - the leverage difference makes it feel tighter/crisper. I took the car for a little 30 mile ride and I am starting to like it. It may not be that great in city traffic. We will see:
In the car:

Drove it some more, since my Mini and S-10 are still unusable for now. Picked up more tools, so I can do the rest of the work on my S-10 though, and got the front brake pads changed out. Center link, exhaust down pipe, clean/paint the battery tray, and put a new battery in, and she should be good to go for inspection.

Heh. I guess it was bought used from a private seller. I think if your car catches on fire 2 days after you buy it, there are some very strict laws that come into play. The guy who bought it probably ok financially (unless it was fraud).
