Steering stops still hit the A arm so I don't know why the person posted a problem with that. I found the issue listed with the longer end links needed. I have a set of Rodney's zero lash so I assume that was a waste of money. Actually will be pulling my stuff back apart before long as I didn't install the new bushings. I wanted to be able to get a review for Rodney completed this weekend, so maybe you guys didn't miss all the fun. I found one of the brake pad clips broke so new pads again will be installed.

Small trick. I put those hand warmers in my hat over my ears. 2 pair of socks. Wear thermal underwear. Wear a flannel undershirt. Over your clothes, wear insulated coveralls. Zip and button. Wear the tight black waterproof gloves. I don't have a name for the gloves. They're not latex, but are almost like innertube rubber. I used to work in that at 25 below (minus the hand warmers), but I had hair then.

Well, the thin layers allow movement. If it was heavy clothing, no. You saw me in most of that outfit a while back at your shop. I didn't use the warmers, the gloves, or the socks.

Well it is much better shape that my nochie was except the nochie has a new Jasper engine.. I'm going to pull the engine. Needs cradle bushing. I'm also going to install new motor mounts and clean the engine up. I'll most likely wait 'til fall to paint it. Have you made any changes to yours?

End links and bushings. I'm working on the headlight motors. Someone painted them, wires and all with a greasy paint. I've been cleaning the heater box and working on the interior. I need to pull the hood to treat a few parts in the front. I fixed the arrow trim. All simple stuff. Still haven't gotten around to treating the trunk. It's fine, but I'd like to keep it that way. I'm working on upgrading the booster. I replaced all the interior lighting.

I hope to see you and your GT soon.

Our plan is to leave Wednesday night, go part way, and return on Sunday. We haven't finalized ”part way” yet.

Loren, any progress?

Lorne, sorry, can't go there. I planned to work on my Fiero after my kids do their project. Can't work on the Fiero and get over there. No brakes in my Fiero, anyway.

That's been on CL for a while. It'd be nice to see if someone buys it.

Where has FieroVirgin gone? Haven't heard from him in about a year.

Lorne, what is on the program, this weekend? I got my brakes back in, but now have the lights and interior out. Not looking good. 2nd year I've taken the interior apart, and haven't gotten to the headliner, seats, or carpet. I'm going to attempt to rebuild my headlight motors.

Burning some front suspension bushings and rebuilding the Pacifica engine if all the parts arrive. If they don't come in I have plenty of other Fiero stuff I bought.

I have a small oil leak on my notchback. I can't tell if it's the oil pan gasket or the rear main seal. This all started when I installed synthetic oil (Mobil 1). I'm going to pull the engine and replace both then go back to conventional oil

Remind me how you know it's #5.

Notwohorns, sounds as if you're having fun. Did you change the weight of the oil?
