Robert's Fiero shifter bracket in his Formula broke. He ordered a replacement from The Fiero Factory but had no idea how to install it. I went to his house after his car had been sitting for 3 months and it was disassembled, interior wise. Long story short, we assessed where the car was at and laid out all the bits on the lawn and went to town. 3 hours later I had it all back together. We charged the battery overnight on a 6 amp trickle and it fired right up next morning. I am happy to report that he is out driving is Formula every day again!

Spending the day cleaning K&N filters in bothe Fieros. Installed the heater control box back into the center console, but I still need to re attatch the flapper cable. A PITA to get my fat hands to screw in the screw to the anchor position.

Well not today, but yesterday I installed the 88 oil pressure sender and connector on my 86 GT.

I know have a steady oil pressure reading on the gauge.

Oh and also took it to church and to my parents house for Easter dinner...

Shocks, struts, bushings, balljoints, tie-rods, rear brake callipers, front and rear wheel bearings, coolant hoses, not sure if I missed anything. Everytime I took one thing off, I found another thing that needed replacing. Here's a picture of a pile of 26 year old (yes, except for the front shocks, everything there was original from the factory).

Now that you have yours done, come over here and do mine!

On a related note, I went to pick and pull around Noon. Had to sit in a Astro Van becuase I was getting sandblasted. Iwanted to paint my declid today but no way in this wind! I did manage to get the scoop screen installed though.

Why did you use bolts and not rivets? I think rivets would have been cheaper and lighter. But, that just means I am probably wrong.

Xyster -- I have never seen anyone here do it with rivets ... must be a reason ... probably rivets are small and will not hold the two parts firmly because it really needs strength.... when I fill the seam in with SMC filler it REALLY needs NOT to move at all. Can anyone else chime in on this ... I may be wrong ??? THX

I ordered a used electronic mirror switch from the Fiero Factory. I can not figure out why the oil idiot light in the aux guage pod doesn't come on when the key is on. I swapped out new bulbs, cleaned the shiny circuit, new bulb sockets nada, the guage works. It worked before I took it out. I installed an old guage pod and neither of the idiot lights come on. ?? Does anyone have any ideas??

Took the Coupe to get gas, left the gas station a little heavy footed - got a little tire smoke / sideways action then it started running bad? Got home and found that the Dizzy was loose? Retimed, cranked the Disszy down tight - still not running right! Maybe I burnt a plug wire? I'll hunt it down in the morning. I think I'll start calling this car "The Sidewinder"...............
