You need to spray in a well ventilated area and wear a respirator.

Thanks!


It’s been on almost a week now. It feels pretty smooth, not rubbery. I’ve sprayed it with spray wax which helps with the feel and durability. I had one of my kids open the passenger door right into a metal handle of a lawn mower today and it didn’t leave a mark. They have bumped into it with bikes and it’s had a basket ball hit it with no issues. You would have to smooth the areas that are peeling if you didn’t want it noticeable when you were finished.

Hey James, she's looking good. I was thinking of a 94 Gran Sport Corvette color, Admiral Blue I think it was. Glad she found a good home. How did you fasten the glass wheel well liners? All 4 were hanging down. I have a few other things you may be interested in. Let me know.

My wife has relented and she suggested we could get a new toy for me. Something that my now limited flexibility will better deal with:



Had it since May. A great smile generator!

Nice ride. I love how the new challengers look. I was able to get the fender liners adjusted so they fit better and the mounting holes lined up with the holes in the body. I then used the factory style plastic push pins to hold them in place. Have been good for 2000 miles. What other parts do you have?

Collecting parts for the 3800 swap. Should be fun. Ordered mounts, alternator bracket, tensioner bracket and flywheel from Fierorog. Spec stage 3 clutch. Taylor 10.4mm wire kit. Grand national fuel pump. Gasket kit for the engine. Some 2.5” exhaust pipe and a performance muffler. Picked up a DHP power tuner to program the pcm too. Need to get the engine out of the donor car still. The 2.5 from this Fiero is going to go in my Indy Fiero.

Got the 3800 out of the donor car. Going to get it on the engine stand so I can strip it down, clean it and reassemble it with new gaskets. Now to get the cradle out of the Fiero.
