Try messaging the guy with the "Fiero Bus", I can not think of his screen name right now to save the life of me... maybe someone else can chime in. If not, I will try to dig through past PM's as I have bought a few things from him at very reasonable prices.

Ok some searching resulted in that it's Matman134. The bus was scraped in February, and I looked through his parts list... no 4cyl ECM's, just a single V6 Auto one

What what? 4cyl ECM for an '84? I have a coupe spare, but keep looking stateside before resorting to importing parts.

I got really lucky with her. I didn't know about the trunk corners when I first bought a fiero.... oh but I do now. The corners were starting to rust but I got after that right away. The area under the battery is where its gotten bad. Gotta love rust inhibiting paint.

It looks like I will have to replace the brake lines. When I was trying to thread them into the flex lines the lines were twisting. So I think it would be better just to replace them for security reasons. So the front compartment will be coming apart again.

I'm sorry to say I haven't been able to do anything with Juliet since the windshield went in. Work has been keeping me busy and planning for the trip up to Frazee for the Shipman camp out. I'm getting really excited about that.

I was able to run the wiring for the radio equipment and power mirrors. I also have the carpet in the car. Just need to get the dash back on. Then most of the interior will be in.

I got a call from the fierostore saying the stainless steel brake lines have been back ordered. They also said it might take 4 to 6 weeks before they get an order in so they can ship them. I hope the clutch line isn't the same.

I have a set of SS Lines I can send you if you can replace them. Not sure how big of a hurry you are in. Just let me know.

That sounds like a good deal! It would let you get your car back together. Just call The Fiero Store and have them Drop ship yours to Marine1981 when they become available again.

That would be great and it would help me get her running down the road. I really don't want to pull a Fred Flintstone stop. Are they for an 84?

That's OK. You don't have to measure. I just thought the 84 lines are specific to just that year and 85-87 had different lines.

I was able to hook up all the hoses and fill the coolant system today. I was able to put some of the interior back in the car. The new computer is plugged in so hopefully it will start with some fresh gas. Fingers crossed. I felt ambitious so I rebuilt my steering column. It needed a new blinker switch and a new wiper switch. That was such a pain, but a fun challenge non the less.

See! That is one advantage of living in Florida (AKA retirement state). Your blinker switch doesn't need to work. If you leave the blinker on from the time you leave the house, you just blend in with everyone else here LOL!

Sounds like you are making serious progress! When you go to fire it up, have Bryan, Jennifer or someone video you firing up for the first time.

It's getting just as bad up here. They don't even look sometimes and just move over.
When I get her fired up I'll pop open a bottle of bubbly and celebrate hard!!!

I picked up wiper blades, more coolant, oil, and lots of brake fluid. So the fluids are all ready to go. I'm going to spend all day with the car without distractions. I am bound and determined to get this done before it starts to get cold. I also picked up a slide hammer to get the pesky CV axle out of the 88 so to get her running.

The new lines are installed and the brakes are fully functional. The installation of the lines were not all that bad. A little Fighting and a little bending was required.

I have been giving the 88 some much needed attention, so this one hasn't been touched lately. I hope soon to have a video of her running. The 88 needed a new D/S CV axle, internal transmission parts, and wheel wheels. I also converted the dash to back lit 120mph cluster.
