If you like offroading, you could make a fiero buggy. I've always wanted to do this:

How is that on topic? Does this help the OP in any way? As stated in other threads, trolls are not appreciated. And no, I'm not going to check out the link. Perhaps you do consistently post on the wrong threads.

If you noticed his nick, uhm ya he is a troll looking for attention. Just give him a neg and move on, that's all you can do.

^ Totally uncalled for. This is general fiero chat, I'm just talking. How does that warrant a neg?

The video is of a fiero.
Falsely accusing me does not contribute to the thread.

I know PA has some weird registration rules. Id check with PA DMV to see whats needed on a salvage car to get it registered again. Ohio is like Ogre said, after repairs, the Highway Patrol inspects the vehicle and you need written reciepts for any new or used parts you install on it. As to road worthiness, they just make a quick overall glance at things like tires and lights...much more concerned with serial numbers. I had to replace a perfect door on one I did because the junk yard didnt put that doors VIN number on the reciept.

My insurance check arrived and I need to collect the parts needed to put my Fiero back on the road.

Here is a list of the parts I am looking for:
I am not sure of all the proper names for these components so feel free to correct me if I get the names wrong.

The parts that I need:
1. complete trunk metal
2. Bar Assembly (what my service manual calls it), metal structure behind the trunk running side to side
3. Absorber, rear
4. Facia, rear
5. Side Marker Lights, rear L & R
6. deck lid is slightly damaged so I am looking for one
7. the driver's seat will not adjust forward and backward, not sure if it is damaged beyond repair so I am looking for one
8. front bumper facia and bumper waffle.
9. probably something else that I have forgotten.

The metal "Bracket" (service manual name) was not badly bent and should be reusable.

I have a lead on some of these parts but it is always good to have backup sources.

The body shop is hoping to start work on it in 2 weeks so if anyone has any of these parts near SE Pennsylvania please contact me.

Roger,

It was difficult emotionally but I turned in my title and received a Salvage Certificate. I was told to get receipts for everything. Serial numbers noted seems like a good thing to do.

My shop said it should not be too difficult. There is an inspector in town that he has worked with and believes we will be able to get it inspected without too much trouble.

Dune buggy, eh?

It has been 5 months since being rear-ended. I told the body shop to take his time and do a first class job, not rush through. I guess that is what he did. The mechanic that performed the mechanical work is a Fiero owner so he certainly appreciated the car. He did a fine job of cutting the crushed trunk out at the factory seam and welding in the donor trunk. Other than the color of the caulking it looks factory built to me.

The shop owner & painter is a Corvette lover, owner and a yellow lover so when I suggested changing from maroon to bright yellow he lit up and said it would be an honor for him to paint it. He used Corvette Yellow #56 but with no black added over top of a white first coat.

There is a lot yet to be done. The interior needs a lot of work. The seats need covers or to be replaced. The head liner needs to be re-covered, maybe replaced. Etc, etc.

Just picked it up today but so far I am loving the black on yellow.

I love a happy ending. I hate it when a minor fender bender sends a Fiero to the crusher for no reason.
