good day Archie,
17 years ago I did a 350 conversion on my 84 SE using your Deluxe Kit with the Centerforce Clutch and Flywheel and the 4 core radiator.
At that time the only mechanical experience I had was attempting to rebuild a brake caliper on my 79 Datsun 280zx. (key word being "attempting" lol)
I had help from two very good friends but for the most part I did it on my own. I think the worst part was the wait, cause I couldnt get it all done in one day.
Seriously it took me two days of cursing and screaming just to get the tranny mated to the engine lol
All in all it took me around 6 months to complete, losing 25 pounds in the process but ending up with one of the most satisfying things Ive ever done.

Sadly she sat for 9 years (moving, divorce, child custody, life..) and has suffered but I am determined to revive her. She actually still runs which is amazing all in itself, but to me it is worth it to tackle even with all the mocking comments and horror stories from the casual unknowledgeables that happen to opine, to me its an icon that deserves surviving.

Good to hear you are still in this, I got a battery tray from you a few years ago but Im pretty sure I'll be needing a few bits once I begin the teardown.

Stay hydrated out there

On top of this forum, another great place for V8 Fiero info is https://www.facebook.com/groups/v8Fieros/ (Archie is a member) as well dropping Archie an email directly. (I actually just spoke to him this morning about my 6.0 LS install in my 87GT) If you need his email address drop me a PM and I'll send it off to you. IIRC That V8 Fiero's group has a few members in Florida too.
