I'm starting university this year and will be attending Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. I'm excited to be closer to the St. Louis crowd in general and even more excited for Fiero bunch around St. Louis. At this time I'm debating on bringing my car down with me. It's been a great daily driver while I'm at home but I don't know if I want to be bringing it back and forth to school and home and racking up some unnecessary mileage.

I've considered bringing it down and keeping it on campus in case I ever want it to go to the city but probably wouldn't drive it home. My roommate is my best friend from our town now so I can always go back with him if I need to. Hopefully as I see shows advertised I can make the short trip and begin meeting other Fiero owners! My car needs some work but I've loved it every day since I first got it. Getting new tires, rotors, and pads before leaving on the 18th for move in day.

I wouldn't worry about the mileage. I would be concerned with parking and vandalism.

I've been driving mine to work in good weather. This adds about 250 miles a week, but I don't get to drive it much, otherwise. Of course, sometimes it just isn't big enough. I can put 1500 pounds of stuff in my truck, but not my Fiero.

Fellas,
As you know I am deployed and a big problem popped up on the homefront. Daughters Explorer went T.U. on her. Making some large clanking sounds. Any good engine guys available to go take a look for me? I'm busy kicking ISIS's ass!

I'm thinking that Explorer is like a 2001-2005 model. Just guessing. It may be different from the one I remember. The problem is, you can't take your shop along to look at it. Between you two, you should get somewhere on it.

Hey guys, since you are fairly close to us over here in the KC area, wanted to let you know we are doing a BBQ September 17th at my shop. Food will be provided, but please bring your own drinks, we should have food here and ready to eat no later than noon, and around 2:30 we plan to drive out to a local spot that has a rather large weekly car show.

If anybody is interested, please shoot me an email chris@thefierofarm.com and I will get you address and more info!

RSVP is appreciated, but please feel welcome no matter what

Drew said he goes to a show every year in Cottleville on the 11th or so of September. Maybe we could plan for then. Davy, Drew, you, Loren, maybe a few others, but yeah, schedules are difficult.

I'm Back on the road

Anybody familiar with the dash cluster, may sent out for repair,, Heres the deal,, never really paid much attention the the service engine light, so i wanted to see if i had any codes,, turn the key to the on/run position and did not see it come on,, so i pulled the bulb and replaced it with a known good one and .....nope not working, now i've always had some dash gremlins and thought it may be a bad ground,, all grounds are good in the engine area but have not been behind the radio for that ground yet , but im thinking its probably good, maybe my next endeavor that will keep me off the rad next,,,lol

Our 2.8 v6 don't have a mass airflow sensor. We do have a MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure sensor). It is located my the thermostat on the bracket that holds the cooler lines that go to the throttle body. That bracket is attached to the upper intake manifold

I didn't end up going, either. I was hoping to run into Drew there, but events conspired against me, and it was after 4:30 when I got in the area. The show ended at 4.

Side note; I still don't get updates when people post on here.anyone know how to get email notice when new posts are,,,,,,,,well posted??I do get notices for PM s.

Removed some paint. Probably removed more than needed but I want to make sure the prep is the best. With no paint removal experience I could not tell where the original versus the top coat starts and ends.

My understanding is that some of the panels have a coating under the paint, that you don't want to remove. I dunno how you'd avoid removing it, since it's very thin. I don't envy you the paint removel task. I had to remove paint from a piano. Someone painted it green. It took me weeks--not that I was motivated to hurry, but the darn thing was an upright. About the time I got the original finish looking good, they gave it away, and bought a console.

I've never herd of a coating between the panel and the primer.From mid hood forward was jell coat primer and paint with no problems.I had a nickle sized patch of deep scratches on my roof.I had to sand into the body a little to smooth it out.The primer paint and clear pealed off that spot within a month.There are five different materials used to make up the various body panels.SMC panels may have a factory jell coat and that is my problem with the spot.Good to know!

Yes there are multiple layers below the paint. One is black and below that is dark grey or light black, haha. Since the paint doesn't come off that easy the black primer and gray material come off before the paint sometimes. I have read and the Sherwan Williams guy said that primer will stick to the material. I need to get it premiered soon so I can get it out of the shop. I also have a spray (yellow) coating from Alsa that I will be putting on until I can finish the real paint job. It is like flex seal in a can j/k. Sloooooow progress.

I have Vette panel repair stuff for around the windshield.

Loren thanks for the comments, I like them more and more each time I see them. Viewing them from certain angles really makes the car.

When I painted mine, I took all of the paint off down to the material, primed, painted and then clear coated it. When I do the new GT, I will only scuff and the prime and paint

I assume you only have the original paint, mine had been painted over and turns out not so good of a job in some spots.
