I went for a cruise with my Fiero yesterday. The weather was perfect, so I decided to take the car for a spin. Unfortunately the car has stopped going into reverse recently (F23 trans), plus I have had an intermittent front end clunk while braking. Since I was going to be near Shayne's place anyway (Lunatic), I dropped by to shoot the breeze. Being an awesome guy, and feeling sorry for me (I am as useless as tits on bull ...LOL) he handed me a cold beer, grabbed a socket set, and started diagnosing my car. Within 5 minutes, he found a few loose bolts and my car goes into reverse now, and the clunk is gone.

What a great person, and a good friend. It is great when we can help each other out. I also try to help out other guys with Fieros when I can (give parts away, help check out cars for guys who are far away, etc).

I thought I would post something positive for a change

Lol! Down the 400 & along the 401 to Kitchener is a brave venture when a few screws are loose.

I recently got a clunk noise when braking on my '84. The upper control arm pivot bolt sleeve had broken free from the cross member.
I'm thinking Shayne would have it fixed already - I'm still struggling with bolts rusted in bushing sleeves.

Thanks for the compliment Pete. Your presence is always welcome here my friend! Fixing your car was my pleasure and I'm glad you made it back safely. I look forward to the day that I give your car the attention that it deserves. Removing all traces of the substandard swap pieces that were done by another member and giving you far better parts and workmanship. I'm a firm believer that we're all here to help each other out.

And David, stop messing with the rusted bushing sleeves and enjoy that low mileage beauty that's sitting in the garage!

Lol! I have to keep the '84 SE going because... first year Fiero owned since new!
(Not to mention I just spent $1100 to fix the A/C...)

I have to keep the '86 coupe going because... rescued, refurbished & repowered in case the '84 is down for repairs!

The Formula is a beauty, so just a couple of times out a week to car shows & such help keep it that way.

It seems like you're rolling right along on your project - http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/094237.html - looking good!
