I started the engines on all three (running ones), worked the controls, took two of them for a drive. I stole this thread idea from My Jeep forum Events posted here will inspire others. The northern members might have to eat Texas crow in the winter time but I live in Texas, .
i bought a new slave cylinder, and replaced the passenger side head light assembly(couse it missteriously stoped working last night). i serched for a mastercylinder..see the mall. and i attempted to remove the headlight bulbes from one of my project cars ( couse there green lights super bright) but soon realized i couldent get to the bottom screws that hold the chrome ring on. i guess you have to remove the assembly to change a bulb?!?!?!?!
I drove mine to work for probably the only day this week because it looks like it may start raining and I don`t really like driving it in the rain. I also got an e-mail from Doug @ Fiero Warehouse telling me my IMSA 1/4 panel scoops were ready so I paid for those although I have to wait until I paint my car to use them.
I replaced the steel rear brake lines on my '84 coupe, the right hand rubber flex hose, the caliper bleeder screws & bled the brakes, flushing out all of the old brake fluid. Just as an FYI for those who tackle this project: the steel lines are 3/16" (4.7mm) tubing that use European M10-1.0mm nuts and Bubble style flares. The Advance Auto Parts part numbers for universal length lines all begin with "BLE" (bubble flare European). The couplers to join these universal length lines is P/N 327512, M10-1.0mm. The bleeder screws are M10-1.5mm and go by Doorman P/N 13908. The right rear rubber flex hose is P/N H38346. The only reason I'm posting all this detail is that I tried to search for the parts needed prior to embarking on this job without success.Now I know and this may help a member in the future.
I rode my motorcycle because my remaining Fiero is broken. Pretty typical I guess.
When I get off work I'll finish installing the Speedhut gauges into this car and figuring out why the cooling fan doesn't come on because I just sold my daily driver Fiero. Thank goodness it's not supposed to rain most of this week. I like riding to work better than driving that car anyway.
------------------ '87 Fiero GT - for sale/trade '86 Fiero GT 3.4 - for sale/trade '96 Talon TSi AWD - 11.9 @ 116, sorta broke again '90 Camaro IROC-Z twin-turbo - sorta broke again '95 Kawi GPZ1100 - too fast
prayed over my silver gt 'cause it's about all that's running right now.
moved my 87 coupe yesterday so the tow truck could put my blazer in an out of the way spot, it's dead. the 87 coupe is runnin' bad but i don't think whatever's wrong with it is going to be an easy fix so i'm straining my brain to figure out how i can get the long put off swap underway. i gotta get the running to non-running ratio back in better shape.
painted the frame under the headlights and surfed to zzp to look up a N* tb kit and some supercharger bearing grease edit: still waiting for my rear coilover kit from Held to arrive, should be here soon, customs delays..

Fie Ro Did you get the conversion kit for the stock struts or are you going to upgrade the struts as well? When you get them on if you don`t mind post how you like them. I am thinking about getting a set. Mike
I'm finishing my new exhaust system for my L67 87GT. I also have installed new rotors (painted centers) and new calipers (painted those) and got my new tires mounted on my new 18"s. Hoping to get the exhaust all buttoned up and even and my new rims on for a test drive. Playing around a little with my HPTuners also (confusing).

I have a set of new Koni's waiting, was going the diy route but regular sleeves dont fit these shocks because of the wider top. Held states they offer a Koni specific kit so I ordered it. It will take a while before I can test it but I will let you know
Added an exteranl trans cooler to keep my temps down in this 100* heat and also added the rubber air dam back under it. Took it for a ride and layed 2 30 foot strips of rubber on a long straight away to make sure it was still fun to do. Ordered a new fuel pump for the Indy so I can get it running without dumping fuel in the TB and get it back on the road. Will be making a list tonight for what I will all need in replacing the brakes on the Indy(already have a Speedway Brake Kit). Pulled a few parts off an 85 SE parts car that I have so I can get them shipped sometime this week. Moved the 85 GT out so a guy could come and take a look at it and decide if he wanted to buy it or not.
Finished cleaning up the intake and supercharger for painting....will paint tomorrow. Found a crack in one of the valve covers in the process....anyone have a spare valve cover (the one with the oil fill) for a 3800SC?
