Definitely looking forward to getting the wheels back on!
Need to check the brake system for a vacuum leak and reinstall rear wheelwell first.
(I had to remove it to get sequential tailight harness out as Bubbajoe is helping with the rewire)
Been busy this long weekend but started prepping doors and mounted these filler panels...



Also picked up my custom door handles and 1/4 windows from the paint shop.

It looks like there's a piece missing on the engine/plenum cover, something like



but with a mesh screen.

Hey Gokart, looks like blower backfire protection for the blower I don't have

Did some work on the door handles so I can reassemble the outer door panels.
Here's the custom shaped handle back from paint to better match the smooth molding.


This is a mod I'd recommend to others with 87-88 Fieros.
I removed the ribbed piece stuck on with adhesive and filled into the shape I wanted.
Only problem was the LH handle had a broken spring and retaining clip.


So I dug into my parts stash to harvest another LH spring.


Hopefully the JB Weld will solve the problem - will update on that once it cures...

That is a nice mod for the door handles.

When are you going to put the wheels on it and roll it out in the light of day so we can see just how bad ass it's looking.

Possibly as soon as this weekend Joe.
I agree that natural light will make for much better photos!
I can do more fit and finish work outside the tiny garage as for example I can't open the doors fully inside.
I've got some other underside finish work to do but I can always jack the Fiero back up for that...

Ok I'll consider adding it to the list - not sure yet because I like getting a peak at the engine valley...

LED indicators and clear marker lens installed:


Also installed the gas filler neck:


Some of you will remember that I had a stock gas door painted as well but that's going on the future mods list for now.
Got a good idea from Bubbajoe on building an all aluminum louvered grill which is also on the list.

1/4 windows are on too:

I bought a plastic rivet tool and mounted the aero trim on the doors:


Next was new hardware for the belt molding:


Door handles and lock cylinders were also preassembled:


Passenger door installed but will need some final adjustment and shims later:


Don't worry, the lower rivet isn't in the fender yet which will move it up and out to where the door is...


Drivers door panel too - lining up the handle and lock linkage always easier the second time around


Whohoo all the body panels are back on


I'm pleased with how the custom shaped door handles better match the smooth molding - and yes the epoxy held just fine

Yesterday I got enough done to get the project back on its own wheels.
1) installed horns that I had forgotten all about.
2) adjusted front fenders to align with door panels.
3) reinstalled wheels and lowered from jackstands.



Battery was dead so I put that on the deep cycle charger.

Well got home from work today and couldn't resist pulling it out of the garage!
This is the first time I drove it since page 59 of the build thread.
Believe me I didn't know at the time it would be one month shy of two years since I drove it again.
I carefully backed it into the driveway and snapped a few cell phone pics in the daylight.











Best feeling was taking it for a spin around the block with proud neighbour onlookers who know how hard I've been working on it show their approval.
Lots of tweaking still to do but it started, the clutch and transaxle worked well and it even stopped
Comments and questions welcome as always.
Cheers, Fiero2m8

I've got one word for you buddy! Sexy!

All that hard work has paid off! You'll have to drop by sometime when you're in the area.

I hear you there... my Blue SBC fiero became engineless in Dec 2009 and I am hoping to have it running again before the 2 year mark.

Congrats on completing the restoration/upgrades and putting the finishing touches on an absolutely epic Fiero.

Thanks Guys, it means a lot coming from Fiero enthusiasts.
Patrick I will be in Vancouver Oct 25-27th for work but they won't pay me mileage to drive...
Yes a video is in order, will try a short one myself this week and can probably get an assistant to record a better one on the weekend.
I pulled her back in the garage and my guess on the rear ride height appears very good now that the springs have settled.


The front ride height needs to be lowered but I am loving the turning radius and steering/ride of the 88 front suspension.
It easy to recommend this swap once it's done
Planning to finalize door panels, install side mirrors and sunroof next.

A little more progress...

Door panel alignment finalized so mirrors could be installed.
I used door gaps and molding as guidelines.
I also brought the panels flush to the rear quarters with shims.
The pictures below should do the talking:

Before


After






Next I lowered the front ride height:
Stock

Spring swap


Also got started on interior.
Mounted roof panel first:


Installed the interior door panel, hardware, dew wipes, mirrors and speaker:


Driver's side is next.

Definitely even better looking with the ride height adjusted.

Almost strange to see it all back together. Hope I get to see it in person in the near future!

Yes the C6 wheels are so much more common these days but I really like the non-painted C5 five spoke.

Driver's side door panel reassembled - I still need to order some new inner dew wipes:


Sunroof panel didn't have 1/4" holes so I drilled them and finished seal install:


Sunroof glass hardware reinstalled:


Hub bearing nuts were also retorqued now that new roller bearings have seated:


Also adjusted front end alignment so it's in the ballpark now.
Next working on new power window switches and headlamps that are going to remain stock for now.

Passenger power window switch replaced:


I decided to swap interior lighting over to LED:

Finally got around to a rainy day project of recovering the fiberglassed headliner in grey foam headliner material I got at Joanne Fabrics.
It will be installed once I prove that I don't have any leaks

Headlights are done until future mod is decided upon (got to leave somethings to ensure the project is never done)
Started by removing all the original harness loom:


Next reassembled the assemblies after cleaning and repainting all the components:


Buckets were slighty adjusted from original mounting locations to align with current hood position:


The passenger motor is lazy and will need repair or replace which isn't surprising since the driver's side failed just before the rebuild started:


Looks like new and just need to do headlight alignment when I have car in an proper environment to make accurate adjustments...

Picked up a few supplys to care care of my leaking upper rad hose and this new problem:


The Cool tube is the split type so it's really easy to install:


When the upper rad hose developed a leak at high pressure it caused a chain reaction of issues.
Air got in the system and coolant stopped circulating causing a hot temp guage.
Meanwhile the coolant in the rad was cooler so the electric fans didn't come on.
Engine bay temp got hot and starting melting plastic loom anywhere relatively near exhaust system.

Anyways will have this all resolved soon - started by swapping the rad hose to a chrome 36" flex pipe that matches my heater hoses:


Working on cool tube install this weekend and then tweaking rear ride height and rear camber / toe alignment adjustment.

Ok yesterday I got 10 feet of wire loom replaced with the Cool Tube:


Happy with the way it came out and the aluminum colour matches quite well:


I used stainless steel straps instead of black plastic ty-raps this time:


Today I worked on the rear ride height and alignment:


It's all the little fine tuning that takes more time than expected...

Know anyway to get some custom center caps?



Pegasus or Badge would looks sweet there!

Thanks guys, I intend to keep posting the details as the project continues to envolve.
As for centre caps, I figure new decals on the original caps would be easiest.
I haven't done that yet but I did get chrome lug nuts for the wheels installed last weekend.

Now for the bad news...

My "Rebuilt" porsche transaxle is only a 3spd as 4th and 5th do not work.
Unfortunately that means it has to come back out and apart, DOH!
Upon further inspection, best way to remove it was out the back.
Here are the pictures as I tackled this last night.

Starter, exhaust, axles, linkage and wiring all removed before unbolting:




I was able the remove the rear bumper as a complete assembly this time:


Then the transaxle came right out and I am dropping it off at the Porsche mechanic to make it right:


Not as bad as I thought because it took just under 3 hours - guess I'm getting faster cause I've done it before
