I caught a guy changing a Ferrari kit from one car to another a few blocks from my house. All I really wanted was a driver's fender but I got that, left and right quarter panels, an aero nose, the eggcrate, and a front license plate holder. All for $30! How's that for a score!

Pictures don't do this car justice. This thing is a fricking time capsule! I can't wait til you see it. You're gonna flip out! I've only had two brand new cars and three brand new motorcycles and this thing looks as good as any of them. It is definately the best looking Fiero I've ever actually seen in person. Now I gotta get insurance on it so I can enjoy it!

Not for this one! This one MIGHT get some body mods such as a reverse chop, ground effects delete, Formula nose, and hood vents but that's the extent of possible plans. Unless something mechanical fails, I'll keep the drivetrain stock. It has too much life left in it to pull it out prematurely.

Besides, I have more than enough on my plate with the '85! Who knows when it will get done and I have to finish it BEFORE I do anything to the GT.

This is some kind of foam-rubbery shop floor matt material. It won't unravel. I cut it with an X-acto so the edges are pretty clean.

Besides, these are just a cheap answer to saving my carpet and factory matts. I'll have to see how they'll hold up. If they do, maybe I'll offer them to the membership. Jason, if you want a pair to use through the winter and spring to keep mud and water off your carpet, I'll give you a pair for your evaluation. I'd be interested in your evaluation because I know yours is a daily driver. You could keep them for winter use, or use between shows when it won't matter if they match your interior. Or you could test them and then pass them on to someone with a gray interior. Let me know if you're interested.

Now that my collar bone is knitted back together I'd like to do something about my ever-widening mid section. I have been back on a bike a few times since this happened. I got new parts for mine for Christmas and it is ready to go. I also borrowed one and went riding at Biltmore House in Asheville, NC.

That has not been enough to keep the lb's off, though. I'm up to 175 now. My goal is somewhere south of 165. I'm going to try to do a pound a week. I'm only going to check my weight once a week and make adjustments to my workout accordingly.

Last week, I rode my stationary bike 20 minutes each day for 6 days and I took Sunday "off". My weight actually went UP half a pound!

Today, I increased the ride to 45 minutes and I'll try to do that every day. I cut the intensity down so it really wasn't very hard. Besides, I've heard that when wanting to burn fat, you don't want to be going all out. I figure I'll burn about 600 calories per day. That would burn 3600 for the week which is one hundred more than I need to burn a pound. Hopefully, I won't be replacing those calories with extra food! I'm not going to count my food intake calories at this point. Gonna see what exercise alone will do while trying to maintain my "normal" eating.

Rather than start a new thread or add new posts on this subject, I'm going to edit this post weekly with my results.

Jonathan


Start:
Begining of Week 1: 175 lbs
Rode stationary bike 6 days for 20 minutes each.

Begin Week 2: 175.5 lbs
Decreased workout intensity and increased workout time to 45 minutes.

Week 3: 175.2 lbs. Net loss of 0.3 lbs. Checked my weight on Sunday to see if it was down so I could take the day off. It was. 173.8 lbs. No cycling Sunday!

Week 4: 174.6 lbs. Net loss of 0.6 lbs. Kind of a big jump from yesterday but these bathroom scales aren't the most accurate anyway. Just so long as they are inaccurate while showing a decrease in weight!

Week 5: 174.8 lbs No loss. Gain of 0.2 lbs. Disappointed. Making some changes. I'm splitting my workouts into two sessions. Some stretching and trunk twists then 30 minutes on the bike. I'll prolly do them at 7am and 5:15pm. That will give me an extra 15 minutes of exercise and it might help spread the effects more evenly throughout the day. I'm also adding whole grain to my daily diet. Oatmeal, Raisin Bran, or granola bar for breakfast.

Week 6: 172.6 lbs on Sunday. I finally broke 173! I may have found the formula. I'll go a couple more weeks to see if my net losses continue. As to fitness, these 30 minute rides are pretty easy to get through. I don't dread them and they seem to be over quickly. My legs feel harder. My face may be slimmer. My torso "might" be looking better. I don't want to say just yet beause I may be giving myself a break because I'm happy about the numbers.

Week 7: My workouts got sidelined by sickness and mechanical problems with the GT. The car was out of commission for a few days because of leaky brake calipers. That caused me to miss my morning workouts because I had to drive my wife to work in order to keep her car. I didn't really feel like working out anyway because I was sick. My weight did go back up. It was 175.8. Who gains weight when they're sick?!! That's crazy!! That's when I decided that I wasn't going to drink any more flavored drinks. It is all water until my weight gets back where I want it. Working out obviously didn't do a whole lot for weight loss. I'll make changes to my diet and see how that goes. If the water doesn't make a dent, I'll cut out dairy. Then I'll cut out sweets. We'll see how far this has to go.

I've lost my place with the weeks. I've not been working out at all for about 2 weeks. I am still on the water only, no flavored drinks plan. It is working better than any workout so far. I was at 171 yesterday. That's a drop of 4 pounds in about 2 weeks without working out. I think I'll stick with this for a while!!

4/28/13 -
I started the 5-2 diet a few weeks ago. I highly recommend it. The way it works is you eat normally for 5 days of the week and on the other 2, you only take in 500-600 calories. So, for my low cal days I eat two hard boiled eggs for breakfast, I have a diet Coke for lunch, and for supper I have a Caesar salad with just a little dressing and a can of tuna on it. I get a half peanutbutter sandwich for desert. My low cal days are Monday and Wednesday. That allows me to enjoy my weekends and we don't have to cook on the nights that the boys go to their dad's. Plus, it is easy to get through the low cal days because we know that we can have anything we want the next day.

After my third week on this plan, with NO EXERCISE, I lost 6 pounds! I weighed before I started this and then again on the morning of last Thursday . I was down to 168.8. That's the lowest I've been in a year. That is without any exercise program! We did take our bicycles out on two days but that was for fun, not as a "weight loss workout".

6/7/13 I was at my lowest weight in several years at my last weigh in. 163.8! My original goal was to get to 165 but that's not going to be enough. Gotta lose some more. I don't know how much more because I don't know how much room a pound of fat takes up. All I know is that I still have more around my middle than I want. I can still pinch more than an inch of skinfold on belly and my back. I did start lifting weights a little. I'm doing one muscle group per workout and not doing workouts every day. Mostly just when I feel like it but I do it right before bedtime so I can rest immediately after. I'm still on the 5-2 diet and it's still working. Gonna stick with it until I get where I want to be and then I can go to 6-1 or whatever it takes to maintain.

Haven't been doing anything with the '85 lately. I've been working on the GT. I had to replace the rear brake calipers:

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/127129.html

And I had a big leak at the base of my distributor so I had to rebuild it. I got my o-ring and gasket at the Chevy dealer.

GM part # 10477565, description "seal", $1.96 each.
GM Part # 10108445 , distributor gasket

I got my pick-up coil at O'Reilly.

http://www.oreillyauto.com/...&keyword=pickup+coil

I figured as long as I'm doing that, I should prolly change the spark plugs. Got them at Advance.

AC Delco R42TS

Got it all together and did a warm-up drive and everything felt normal. Got home and put the timing light on it to fine-tune the timing. Went for another test drive and the car is much improved. Now I don't feel like I need to do this:

I can't believe I never re-posted this photoshop here. This is actually the combination of two done by 85SEnochie. He put the 68-69 GTO nose on and modified the headlight doors to add the LEDs. I'd like to add these features to my car some day.

I might as well add the one he did with my paint scheme!



Now I need to ask him if he'd combine all three of these into one.

Well, my current project is building cabinets in the garage. Almost done with the first one. It is for my wheels and tires. The next one will be for hoods, trunk lids, and cradles. The Mrs has laid down the law that I don't get to drag my GT project out. I have to be ready to jump in and do it all at once, paint and all. Minimal down time only.

I guess I could swap a notchback clip on while I modify the GT clip. I could also create the nose on one of my parts cars, too. I'll need to find some GT sail windows to modify. Mine are too nice and original to cut. I'd rather sell them to someone who needs a nice pair.

I put a Grand Prix automatic shifter knob on my GT. This is a stock shifter knob, stock height Fiero shifter stalk, and stock shifter boot. I don't think I need to go to the trouble of making it shorter, do you? The knob had a plastic part at the bottom and I pulled it off. I think it was there to create a gap for the boot to be captured in. I installed it under the boot but it's not really doing anything.

My left headlight suddenly quit going up. The light was on and I could manually raise it. When I turned the lights off, the motor would lower the headlight. I changed the little relay thingy and now it's working again! That was easy! It was just laying down loose when I found it. The bracket part had broken off at some point. It was supposed to be positioned so that the wires all entered from the bottom. I believe that since it was not upright, moisture was able to get in and killed the relay. I used a zip-tie to re-attach it to where it is supposed to be.
