Hi guys
I hope to not sound "cheeky" with this favor, but I was wondering if anybody could help me with putting the FrankenFiero back together on 2 April. I plan on painting between March 27-29 and letting her sit until that Saturday morning.

As the title says, I WILL BUY PIZZA, SODA, WATER, AND BEER.

If you can help, shoot me a message and I'll give you the address and time. I should have all the tools here.

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you there

I can't attend, but I think this is a great idea. It's a productive hands-on opportunity. I wish there were more of these.

You know I'm in. Make sure you have enough beer for me to get drunk enough that I don't actually have to do any work on the car.

Joking, but serious, what do you drink? I was going to pick up some Bud Lite

Supervision will be good the for the first beer or two, after that I worry. It's the experience that I need. I have a ton of parts sitting here that I don't know where some of them go!

My swap is in, runs good. I can (try to) answer any questions you may have.

Thanks for the thoughts from afar and the support near! I'm having to push my schedule back a little bit. My kids go back to school that week and my painting schedule starts early and ends late for two days; so I'll be spraying the 25th and 26th of March and I'll let cure for 3 days. Wednesday, I'll be assembling what I can by myself and she needs to go back in the air; the resistor on my fuel gauge is upside down so I'll do that beforehand.

The car will be centered in the garage for complete access; the coolers will be full of beverages. I should have all the tools required. Does Auto Zone sell the needed plastic rivets?

Thanks again guys

Miller Genuine Draft, it IS the beer of choice.
But if you want more work done with a little less buzz get Miller High Life.
If you want people to just stay away get the bud light. All is good jest.

Harbor freight sells the plastic rivets. One trick to the plastic rivets is to soak them in HOT water right before you use them, otherwise they break alot when trying to use them.

Thanks for the tip! I'll keep the kettle on for water on demand!

I'll have my Mrs. pick up the pizzas for a 12:30 lunch and crack open the beers then, that way I can get a couple hours of productive work! I hope to have some done beforehand, I think I'll run into problems putting on the hood and decklid as well as the doors. I forget how the doors came apart. I'm also going to have to wire up the windows, locks and mirrors as they're new to the car. The hood and decklid are easy I know, but they're cumbersome. Hopefully it'll be good times!

Bump just to keep in the back of your mind.

I started building my paint booth......my neighbor was worried that I was building a meth shack in my garage.
Got a good deal on a new windshield; the guy next to the pick and pull on lamb charged me <$95 for the window and molding.

Hey guys, just a bump
2 April is still a go. I’m painting the car 26th and 27th and I’ll have that week off. So, between the 28th and the first, I’ll go ahead and start assembling the car. I hope to get these accomplished before anyone (hopefully) arrives on the 2nd.

Install fenders
Install rockers
Install quarters
Install bumpers (the front one will need some bracketry)
Wire in cruise control
Insulate engine wiring
Seal in firewall
Install sunroof seal
Flip resistor on fuel level reader.

I will need help with the following. Please!!!!

Install e-brake cable
Install hood
Install decklid
Install front light covers
Install windshield
I have the 2 tubes of 3M adhesive and 8 of the triangular blocks that go around the windshield. Hope I'm not missing any
Assemble/install doors.
I have new dew wipes to put in. The glass will (hopefully) be out and tinted. New Felt pads will go in as well. I have enough door hardware for 4 doors, it’s all unorganized and I haven’t a clue how to put it all back together! Sorry
I also believe that my driver door needs to be bushed; I have new pins and bushings. What drill bit is usually needed?

Anything else that I’m missing.


Thanks for reading and I hope to see y'all there

**Edit to ask: Does anybody have a connection to crimping A/C ends? I have all the hoses and hardware, I just don't have the tooling to do it.**

**2 Weeks Out!!!!!**

I'll pick up some Miller Lite and some Foo-foo craft beer and there's a Little Ceasers down the street or a Pizza Hut up the hill.

I'm painting a little early, this Wednesday and Thursday. The Mrs. has something to do the weekend I wanted to paint so everything got bumped.

I'd show a picture of the paint booth but the PIP doesn't seem to be working right now.

Great idea!

In the past I found I get more things done when 2-3 people help me out.
When more than that come, they all "party" while I do all the work by myself...

I've got a 12 ton Hydraulic crimper, used for electrical lugs, with a full set of large dies. I've seen these advertised on Ebay for use on AC hoses ( but maybe with different dies). You're welcome to use it.

There is an O'reilly's on Decauter ( Near McFadden's Hdwre) that makes hydraulic hoses. They might be able to crimp AC hoses. There is also a place on W Tropicana, Auto Air and More, that also might do it. That's where I buy my parts. Third place I've seen is on Losee- Silver State Hose .

Thanks for the offer! I would assume that the electrical dies are a little different, I don't want to ruin your equipment. But if you're coming over 2 April, bring it over, we'll see just how off it is!? I got some fuel hose (for another project) from Nevada House of Hose and they charge $10 a crimp. I then called that O'Reillys, they do in fact do the crimps for like a couple bucks. I'll go there after the tech day. Thanks for the tip!

One week out, any help would be greatly appreciated! Car is in parts but painted. I will have to clean up the clear coat and I have some black overspray on a green door panel. My plan is to do that after the car is assembled and the hellish weather of summer is over.



Hope to see you here!

Nope....just difficult or sophisticated!
I just got back from two Albertsons, neither had your foo foo beer. I got you some New Belgium Hoppy Blonde. Hope that'll suffice

Thanks Jon, I hope it goes well too. Hopefully, we'll get some photos out there tonight. When I was stationed in England, I was looking for a Fiero (I don't know what I was thinking) but someone in London was selling a right hand drive 86 4cylinder £2500. He did have a photo and it looked legit. I've just never seen it before!

It was a good time, thanks you guys for coming over!!!!

I learned a bit about doors today as well as air conditioning.

Outer passenger door skin is completely assembled, driver door was adjusted to fit. I'm missing some minor hardware to finish that but thanks to the guys, I know how to get that all together. We also installed the decklid and wing; my hinges will need adjustment. It's slowly coming together!
