'88 "Mellow" Yellow build
So, figured I'd start my build thread for no other reason than to keep track of what I'm doing. Not my first Fiero, had an 86 4sp GT a while ago (which I should have kept). Did some work to it but got rid of it before I headed to Iraq a while ago. Put T-Tops in my 86 and liked them. Should of got another Fiero when I got back, but instead got one of these to work on:
Still have the Syclone, but been wanting another Fiero for a while now. I retired from the military a few months ago and am pretty much a stay at home Dad. Run a small business from my house, so needed another project to keep me busy.
Couldn't find an 88 Formula/GT 5 Speed for what I was willing to spend, so figure I'd make what I wanted. Gave my self a fairly light budget to work with.
Looked for while and found a nice '88 T-Top base coupe, w/AT. Bought it from the original owner (original title, which I should have taken picture of, but forgot to), but had been sitting a few years and didn't run. Trailered it home.
Plenty of use out of a winch on my RZR.
The Formula look is really growing on me so for this one I decided to go with a basic Formula knock-off. Stuck the Fiero in the rocks for the first few weeks getting some basic stuff done.
Tried to get the ol duke running (88K miles on it) but didn't want to spend a bunch of time on it so did some basic stuff and gave up. Figure the fuel pump was bad (turns on, but doesn't prime at all). Since I'm going with a V6, have to change the fuel pump anyways so didn't want to buy another 4 Cylinder one to just get it running.
Just gonna work on a "basic" build, fix a few things, get it running for a DD. Hence the mellow
