Get together at my house is now set for Saturday March 15th starting at 9:00am

Ok, so Daytona is approaching fast. I know my Fiero is not going to be perfect or in "show car condition" by then, but I would love to get it back together enough to take it to it's first Daytona Show. So far I have not even gotten the chance to drive and enjoy it in the 3 years I have been working on it. It is CLOSE to done, I just need some help for the final stretch.

I have been very reluctant to ask for help, as honestly, there is no one really close to me. I, for one, hate to ask people to travel far, and then have to ask them for help, and 2, have no one show up, and just get more disgusted with the whole project LOL!

I have been working on this car for 3 years now, a little at a time. I have just over $10,000 into it (I find it hard to believe, but I unfortunately have the receipts to prove it). It is 95% mechanically sound, with a new crate engine, new hubs and brakes all around, completely new cooling system (Radiator, hoses, fan, relays), new wheels and tires ect, all brand new parts on the crate engine (Alternator, starter, water pump, A/C compressor, wires plugs rotor, cap, TPS, Module.... It has gotten so frustrating just not knowing what to do next, and just wanting it finished, that I have contemplated just giving up at times and selling it. I keep talking myself out of that, but it's just frustrating! LOL

Here is the build thread, from the day I got it, up until recently.

What I need help with, is really just cosmetically putting it all back together. I have all new quarter windows, belt line molding, LED side markers, and all new interior from the seats, door panels, boots, carpet, fiberglass headliner ect. It has been a couple years since I took a lot of it apart, and have forgotten how some of the stuff goes back together LOL! I am very mechanically inclined, but I am far from a mechanic. I have had to do all of this work up to this point by myself. I have never worked on a car before, let alone attempt to restore one. I would be great to have a bunch of people over that can help me put her back together, or at least show me how. There is no major mechanical work at all to be done, other than tracking down a possible vacuum leak.

What needs done:

  • I have a new Fiberglass headliner that needs installed. I drilled all the holes and cut it out, but need some extra hands to help hold it and get it into place to install.
  • The entire interior needs put back into the car (Dash, seats, center console, door panels, seat belts)
  • The front 355i bumper needs to be attached (JimmyS sent me the screws and hardware needed)
  • Complete the installation of DIYStu's Dew wipes
  • New side molding with all new clips from The Fiero Store needs to be installed (all the old molding is already removed)
  • Engine runs great, but idles high, I think I have a vacuum leak.
  • I have a gen II headlight wiring harness all in place, just need to attach the ends of the wires to the new 4 x H2 headlight bulbs. I have all the plugs, connectors and stuff needed, just not sure how to wire up for Low / High beams ect.


This is the state of the car now:






I have all the parts I need for the car, except the center console glove box. When I bought the car, it was ripped apart from someone attempting, and failing, to install a sub into it.


I will roll out the invitation, and do up some BBQ chicken, Ribs, steaks, burgers along with ALL homemade Baked beans, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, and all the fixins' (I will have everything prepped the day before, as I intend 100% on working on the car all day with everyone else, aside from maybe during a lunch break ) I will also toss in a reproduction sticker set if you would like one for your Fiero, as a small thank you.


Right now, March 15th seems like a good Saturday to do it. It a month away from now so there is plenty of time to plan. It's also 2 weeks before the Daytona Show, as to not interfere with any last minute work that others want to do to their cars before heading to the Daytona Show.

Here is a map centered a couple miles from my house. I can Call or PM my address to anyone that can come help.

So, I guess this is the time I plead beg for help from people. It would be so much appreciated. In turn, if you need help with something, I will be a phone call away.

If someone is too far to drive in for the day and back again, I do have a spare room with a Queen size bed that's open to the first person that calls it!


This is a list of who is coming to help so far:

If you had posted this last week I could have come over and helped out for a day or two, I was just on the other side of the state.

Can't wait to see some pictures of your completed car. Love the paint job. Make sure to get a carry on bag big enough to bring it with you to Frazee this summer.

This seems like it would be a good "Tech Day" or weekend to get Central Florida Fiero's , Space Coast Fiero's ,Suncoast Fieros and the
Southwest Florida Fiero club to come together and get your Fiero done and ready for the Daytona show.

Wow, THAT would be amazing! It would be amazing to get all the groups together for something like this! Even if it wound up not being for my car, I would be the first one there! There is nothing like a group of people working together on a project like this. I have had the opportunity to help on the Tyler Shipman Build in Frazee, the Joel Build, just north of Atlanta, and the chance to go help out DIYStu in Texas. Oh, and a couple times over at JimmyS's working on getting his Chop top done. Great times, great people, and a chance to learn stuff!

Yea, that would be a bit of a drive! LOL

As mentioned, I have everything I think to put the car back together, other than the center arm rest / glove box. If someone has one of those let me know what you want for it.

Wish I was a little closer to help now.

As much work as you have put into the Daytona Show, you need to have your car there too. If you get a day where people are coming over let me know. And if that doesn't happen, name a weekend and I'll be there.

Yes, they are Mr. Mikes, and I did order them in Vinyl. Sure it is cheaper, but also a lot easier to care for, and longer lasting. It's at least the higher quality vinyl, and is kinda hard to tell in person if it's leather or not.

Much appreciated! I am grateful for the offer. As it stands, I will still shoot for March 15th, a Saturday. 3 Weeks away, and still a couple weeks before Daytona.

I actually know what would look sharp there...... The LED side markers I put together 4 years ago.... Just before you started making them I think hehehe. Funny story: I called to order side markers from the Fiero store, as they had none on the website. He told me they were not on the website, as they were out of them, and only had a few defective ones. I asked what the problem was, and he said the glue that holds them together did not cure, and they were coming apart. I laughed internally a little bit, composed myself, and put on my best "I am not interested" voice, and asked what kind of discount they would do, being they did not want to sell them as defective. It wound up being 50% off. When they came in the mail, just gently lifted the backs off, literally with just a finger, and installed the LED's

All I have left to do with them is get the plug to plug into the existing socket, and figure out the rectifier or whatever it is so they work with the turn signals correctly when the parking lights are on or something like that if I remember correctly.

I would love to make the trip with you Chuck to help get John's Fiero put back together in time for the show.

You can still do me a favor, Set your Plans instead on the Tyler Shipman Memorial Car Show at the end of July in Frazee, MN then! It is a great weekend of fun, food, Fieros and raising money for a good cause. This will be my 6th trip to Frazee, and it gets better every year! I hope to see you there!

CaptnDean stopped by yesterday, and dropped of the rear center console / glove box. Cool! I am pretty sure that takes care of any and all parts that I need to put the car back together.

Yea, that is a bit of a drive! LOL!

I have been working on getting anything and everything I can think of ready for the 15th. If anyone has a "bucket of bolts" they could bring, that would be fantastic! I am sure I have 99% of the screws, bolts and what not needed to reassemble the interior, but it's certainly possible I am missing some screws and such. I do have an Auto Zone, Pep Boys & a Home Depot within 1/2 mile of my house.

I wish I could be there to help out. I definitely have plenty of experience dealing with a ripped apart fiero.

You are just a tad to far for me as well, but getter done. and have a beer for me, I am prescribed 3 a week by my heart surgeon but if you have one for me I can still have my 3 a week and not OD, enjoy the day, the car looks like it will come together in a few hours with all the help you have already lined up, good men all of them. they have to be, they own Fieros.

Yep, also a bit far away. That is the problem with living in South Florida, it is 6 hours to the one and only state border to the North for the most part. Up north, people driving 6 hours can come from various states and 360 degrees of direction.

John,

it is too bad that you are so far away from me because I also have a vehicle (88 Mera) that is torn apart and being reassembled. If you were a bit closer we could have helped each other but you are around 700 miles from me. Ironically, I will be within 100 miles or so of you (Sebring) after the show when I visit my father in law. However, that does not help get the car back together prior to Daytona.

Ok, the 15th is next Saturday, just one week away! It is coming up FAST! I have been scrambling to get everything in place, finish up details, locate and organize all parts.....

I sent out PM's to everyone that responding above. It has my address, phone number and other details. If someone wants to join in, just let me know and I will get all the info out to you!

THANK YOU AGAIN FOR EVERYONE THAT HAS OFFERED TO HELP!

I just talked to JimmyS on the phone, and he is going to be able to come over and help! If anyone knows how to put this front bumper on correctly, he does!


The car is in great shape mechanically as far as I know, and after everyone helps me put it back together it will be in good shape. However, not good enough that I would trust driving a Fiero that has not been driven in at least 6 years, to go on a 6 hour trip. I just took out an "insurance policy" . It's called AAA Premium membership They will tow the car up to 200 miles, which is JUST enough to get it home if I were to have problems in Daytona, or on the way there or back.
