Unfortunately, my project to change the final drive ratio in one of the transaxles didn't work out.
The plan was to have one transaxle setup for highway cruising at low revs and leave the other stock for best acceleration.
The ring and pinion I bought on eBay thought to be from a Porsche Sportmatic had a smaller diameter ring gear that wouldn't fit the differential.

Thought I'd post some pics of the light cover lenses I cut out from a sheet of acrylic then tinted and mounted flush with the bumper covers.
This is something that I had planned on for years and finally got around to the project.
I'm happy with the results as a signature homemade custom touch to modernize the look.
Bonus is I've had no issues with keeping them clean and secure on the car during highway use or washing the car.
Originally I thought of making extras to sell to forum members but after the time invested in the prototypes, I lost interest mainly because mine would no longer be unique

Rears:















BTW - I have since painted the stainless hardware satin black so they blend in with the tinting.
The above pic gives a good scale comparison between the Indy and a late model Camaro !

Fronts:













Happy New Year!

Nicely done!

If you want to eliminate the red grid lenses in your tail lights and go to a one piece smooth red lens let me know. I cut them on my CNC router for my LED tail light kit.

I haven't tried them with regular incandescent bulbs yet, so I'm not sure how they would look or deal with the heat.... but if you want to try, just let me know.

Thanks Chris, added it to the mod list.

Another project I checked off the list was replacing the exhaust after the flowmasters to mandrel bent tube and new stainless tips.
This time I went with more of a Corvette theme look since so many of the upgrades to the newest project are Corvette parts.
Have a look at the pictures below and let me know what you think.

Cheers, Ryan aka Fiero2m8

Didn't think this car could look any better but it just keeps moving up the custom Fiero ladder. Great job!

Latest upgrade is installing "switchbacks".

LED's that appear as white running lights but switch to amber for turn signals...

Here's the brand I bought and a video of them installed today:

On the mechanical front, I had a starter issue to resolve.

Symptom was car starts fine when engine cold but wouldn't engage and crank properly when engine was hot.
Of course I didn't want to damage my new flywheel so I needed to find a solution to avoid having to walk home as the alternative.

I removed the starter and took some measurements with the calipers.
The result jogged my memory to realize I had caused this issue in the first place!
After upgrading the clutch and pressure plate last season, I had a clearance issue to the transaxle housing.
This was resolved by shaving material off the crank adapter plate.
The aha moment is that the starter pinion had also been moved further away causing the pinion to not fully engage the width of flywheel.

First I thought of modifying the mounting plate on the starter but then I thought a "off the shelf" starter solution would be best for long term ease of replacement.
Here are the starters I had been using:


My second idea what why not use a Porsche starter?
Measuring the width of the pinion teeth and throw distance showed an improvement over the aftermarket starter I was using.

Here's a picture of a stock Porsche 914 starter mounted:


Problem was the starter didn't have enough torque to start the V8!


So I exchanged it for one from a 911:


Then I decided that the Porsche starters were too big and heavy and that I may have problems with it's close proximity to the header.

Next I called IMI the manufacturer of the hi torque starters and gave Chris my measurements and application details.
Instead of the IMI -101 I had with a 30mm depth, we went with a 44mm depth unit that could be shimmed out 3mm to get what I wanted.

In the catalog it is a starter for V8 conversions to a VW bus (I had been using a VW bus flywheel and I do have a V8 lol).


I decided to go for the IMI-104NC (the N being higher torque version and C for chrome) as the part number for my project.
Soon it arrived from California nice and shiny:




Next I swapped in the rebuilt transaxle for this season as the syncros on the used one are getting tired and see how the new starter performs...

Here are the pics:

That's a good idea. I've thought about exactly that kind of thing but didn't know they were available.
Where did you get them? Do you just swap them for the standard bulbs or is there more to it? Did you make clear lenses?

Hi David,

I ordered the switchbacks from Performance Improvements on Upper Ottawa in Hamilton during their annual sale - very close to Stoney Creek!
Performance Improvments

The clear lens are from the Fiero Store here: 84-88 Clear Ft Park/Turn Lamps
I try to support The Fiero Store annually as I'm glad they still exist - using purchasing hardware kits or accessories etc.

You can direct swap the bulbs as they can be ordered for a 1157 socket.
To slow down the flashing rate, swap out your flasher relay with a LED relay.

You will see in the picture below I chose to bring the lens out flush with my homemade tinted covers to increase visibility and modernize the appearance:
However without the tinted covers hiding the housings it wouldn't look right in the 87/88 bumper IMHO.



I liked the switchbacks so much, I'm planning something similar to incorporate them at the back of the Fiero.
The switchbacks will combine indicators and reverse lights in the bumper reflector location...

Next in the LED project was upgrading the rear, using in part the Embrace Racing kit from local forum member doublec4
While the instructions were very good, I took pictures of the progress along the way to document on the build thread here for future reference.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Assembly of kit:























Next is testing them in the car...

Cleaned up the wiring removing unneeded extra wire from last sequential system



Parking lights only



Brake lights only

Since I liked the switchback LED's on the front of the Fiero so much I decided to incorporate them as turn signals and reverse lights at the rear.

Ordered another set of clear lens and I already had the extra switchback bulbs:



Wired up turn signals to reflector area that I had already previously modified for the reverse lights:



This is how it turned out with switchback LED's behind the tinted lens - different compared to the standard kit setup but flows with the setup at the front of the car.

I had a worn out clutch pedal cover so I replaced with The Fiero Store aluminum pedal covers.
Easy to install and they look fine in my opinion...

Haven't posted in a while, so had a look at the photos I've taken and will add some to the thread.
This think this was the first summer I spent more hours out with the car than wrenching on it

I rebuilt the front passenger side hub bearing this year although all the good pictures of the rebuild were lost when my phone crashed:








Make a trip to Nickel Beach on Lake Erie - got a speeding ticket on way there but it was never handed in so maybe he just wanted to get a closer look






Even drove it to do some shopping and local errands this summer but was careful on selecting a parking spot:






I made some changes to the rear diffuser to make it easier for air to escape:










Even brought it to work to show the boys at the office and take fellow car guys for a joyride:





Lately I flushed and filled the cooling system, fresh oil change, pulled the battery, fuel treatment and slow leak repaired in tire so it's ready to relax for the winter:

I found some more pics on my iPad of the hub bearing rebuild:

If you recall, I used Caddy 79-85 Seville rear non-abs hub bearing units and the flange was swapped from the 88 Fiero:



I had previously bored it out for a larger outer bearing cup but that size had to be special ordered from canadian bearing.
So my future brother-in-law made a sleeve for it so the 67010 available and usually in stock at local auto parts stores would fit the tampered roller bearing:



Here you can see the shim after bearing pressed in and endplay checked with dial indicator:



Since it appears the nut moved previously a tack weld was used instead of bending the collar nut on the flat side of the shaft:
We also made a washer to go between the bearing and nut...



Finished it up with a trailer bearing cap modded to fit.

For the first time I trusted the newest project to an oil and filter change by someone other than me!
Went in on a quiet Sunday morning and the 5 "car guys" were great!

I had broke a shift cable so I ordered a new one from the Fiero Store for the fore and aft shifting.
Just a tip - make sure if you have an 84 Fiero you get the longer one as they route through the floor instead of the firewall like later models...
After much adjustment everything shifting smoothly and easy to find all the gears in the Porsche 901 transaxle
With reverse at top left and first gear down and to the left in the shift pattern, I have a spring that when you let go of the shifter it moves slightly right and a quick shift to second is achieved with a push forward instead of a dog leg risking hitting reverse in error
Once in second shift lever stays there so 3rd is a straight pull back.
Not that I need first with a .456 final drive ratio and lots of torque - but sometimes it's fun to rev the Northstar to 7000 rpm

Haven't updated over the winter all I did was read a book on converting to EFI.
So far I've decided against it mainly due to overall cost.

On a personal update:
After 9 years together and 4 years engaged to Erin, we are planning a large destination wedding in Jamaica this spring
Almost 50 friends and family members will be in attendance for the week at an all inclusive resort (helps with the bar bill)!
Erin & I are also planning a honeymoon the following week in Negril.

This has me contemplating selling the newest project in this thread of almost 350,000 views and 3100 posts!
It started with Bubbajoe in 2003 and I took it over in 2008 when he sold it to me for $2,000
This was $8,000 less than he had invested in it - just to see it go to a good home.
The problem I have now is over the past 8 years I have invested $36,850 CDN ($27,500 USD) into the project to finish/improve it to the state you see it today.
That investment value doesn't include parts I paid cash for and my labour (which I never would because it is a hobby).

Of course I have loved the entire journey and understand one off custom cars are never worth what it takes to build them.
I also realize that the average value of a Fiero and what most Fiero owners can afford is a fraction of my investment.

Below is a list of 108 expenses that I did kept track of via a file folder and the build thread that went into the project sorted by date in chronological order.
The prices listed are in Canadian funds and included shipping, duty, taxes and the currency exchange rate at the time (where applicable).

Hey Ryan.

I have two questions but I see that you've already sort of answered one.

1) What's the fuel mileage like on this? KM/tank average?
2) I have a factory gen 2 (00-03) Northstar here and was going to offer you the fuel injection from it. I have most of the engine wiring, intake, PCM, etc. I take it you're not interested in it?

That's all.

Have fun in Jamaica!

Shayne

Hi Shayne, thanks and nice to hear from you - I was just in Kitchener last Thursday on business.

1) The combined mileage is 15L/100km or 15mpg which gives a range of approximately 250km or 160 miles per tank.
Given it is not a daily driver and gas prices are low, this was not the motivator for going EFI.

2) I love the uniqueness of my setup and especially the sounds, however my better half doesn't like the smell
At the time of the build, the PCM for the 00-03 wasn't Fiero engine swap friendly although this may have changed with aftermarket ECM's - someone can chime in on that.
I looked at the stand alone EFI systems but most would require another custom intake manifold and I'd have to decide whether to change my ignition system or not.
So I'm interested in what you have to offer assuming my research finds it can be used and what in addition to your parts I would need to complete this swap.

How much are you asking for the EFI components, wiring harness and PCM?

Man, I've looked, and looked, and looked for those Seville bearings.
Can't get them anywhere here in the US with the castle nuts.

I found a set of New Old stock but they had the castle nut done from the opposite side, that is, the outside of the hub not the inside like yours.

Not much to update as project was just listed for sale on auto trader and kijiji in Canada.

However I did work on another option / solution for the 1988 Hub Bearing units.
I bought a pair from Rodney Dickman and modified the flange by redrilling the studs for the Corvette bolt pattern and made a concentric hub ring to go from 57 to 73mm.





So far test driving is proving it was a successful mod and this should be a bolt on solution for the future owner.

Here the pattern it you need to take the Rodney Dickman 1988 Hub Bearing unit to a machine shop to have the studs redrilled from the stock 5 x 100mm.

For bolt pattern 5x4.75" (same as 5x120.65mm) see below...

Thanks Jim, much appreciated!
I expect it will have a new home sooner than later now that the nice weather has arrived here in Niagara.
Will provide update and hopefully new owner will join PFF if they are not already a member.

So, Ryan, how are you coping with seller's remorse? Lol! Local buyer?
