UPDATE: Since I need a minimum of 16" rims with my 12" brake upgrade for BluDrm.
I swapped Barbie's 16" custom rims with BluDrm's original 15" stock Lace rims.


In the long run, I wil be putting a set of 18" lace BBS rims on BluDrm once she is finished.

This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

Barbie will get a set of the 17 "Hot Wheels" rims...fitting for Barbie (Mattel)

UPDATE: Mr Poe was over trying to finish up that last few things. Unfortunately we did not get everything competed.

We need to order 4 M11 bolts for the rear caliper adapters.

I need to reach out to BMWguru and find out the exact size and order.

All 4 brake lines are now upgrade to stainless steel braided lines.

The front brakes are on and just need to be bled at this point.

Test fit Barbie's 16 custom rims and they fit without any issue.

Power steering is now also completed.


So I need the 4 bolts to finish the rear calipers, bleed the brake booster, master cylinder, and all 4 brakes.

Then she will be 100% done...being mechanically restored & upgraded!

Onto body install, prep & paint. Then install my brand new interior and then lastly inspected & registered.

The worst part is that Stephen won't be available for the next 14 days or so...so she is pushed back another few weeks in this project being completed. Another set back, but at least this time, it is just a small one. It will also grant me the time to figure out how to get my spare tire bucket back in with the power steering upgrade now in place and also reattach my front hood.

UPDATE:

Life has thrown me a few curves that has and will be continuing to siphon a decent chunk of my liquidity for next few months.

So I have re-worked my plans as follows.

I will be transferring Barbie's body panels to BluDrm and painting them the same blue color as the MERA body.

Then for the rest of the winter, I will strip Barbie down, sand, and rustoleum the entire under body like I did with BluDrm.

Upgrade her to:
13" brakes with FieroGuru's kit
Bigger brake booster
New master cylinder (same as BluDrm's)
Power steering (WCF)
New shocks/struts
New Poly bushings all around
G1 Dash
Zimmer Quicksilver inner door panels
New black carpet
MERA Body

UPDATE: OK...if you have followed my thread long enough...you know I can't leave anything along until I am completely satisfied with the solution.

Well I was far from satisfied with my 1st attempt to re-work things. I don't have the heart to dismantle Barbie...so I needed to figure out the best solution.

Well Barbie going to remain un-touched and will also be restored shortly to factory perfection...she is is going to be my Stock 88GT with her same custom paint job being redone before spring.

So I needed a solution to two different issues now.

I need body panels for my 86GT NOW!

I also will now need another Fiero for my MERA body from EVM_Rob (on hold till Easter) & TDI install (directly after body install)

So the next logical step is to purchase yet another Fiero...and I now only purchase 88 Fieros...so it will have to be another 88....also gotta have the 5 Speed!

Sounds like it is time to go find another diamond in the rough:



1988 Pontiac Fiero GT - 134k miles, V6, 5 speed transmission, sunroof, new tires, clutch replaced 20K miles ago.
(There is a comprehensive file of the maintenance that was performed on it)

Q: Is there anything wrong with the car?
A: Normal wear and tear. The rotors on the brakes will need to be turned in the next 10k miles or so. Some broken trim on the interior. The paint on the hood is fading. Windshield is cracked. You may be aware that the slave cylinder on the clutch on this model, goes out about every 20K miles. This will likely need to be done in about 10K miles. This part is currently under warranty (lifetime). Otherwise mechanically sound!

Q: Does it have clear title?
A: I am the only owner since it left the dealer. I have a clear Texas Title and registration.

Q: Has it been repainted?
A: The hood was repainted the year I bought it. Some idiot thought it would be cute to “Decorate the hood” with graffiti.

Q: Has anyone smoked in it.?
A: Yes

Q: When is the last time it was driven?
A: I am driving it daily to commute to work.

THIS WAS A MUCH BETTER SOLUTION!

Where, oh please, where, did you get the "door track to glass bushing?" I have not been able to locate any that fit the track snugly. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. Do you also know where to obtain the bushings that travel in the channels of the regulator?

UPDATE:

Sorry been busy with other aspects of life, so all my Fiero projects basically came to a complete STOP!
I just purchased a new home on 25 acres:




I am in the process of having two steal beamed building added to property.
Both will be 30'x40'. One of these buildings is just for my Fieros and My home office
This is a photoshop of what it will look like when completed:


I will be re-focusing my attention & liquidity back to my Fieros in the next 30 days.
Once I do, it will be full steam ahead to knock out all the work I need to get completed!

What do new striker posts do for you? Were yours worn or can all Fieros benefit from a striker post upgrade?

The part that latches to the striker posts wears over 25 years...this striker is just a bit fatter than the stock striker and allows for the door to truly seal correctly again.
The cheapest upgrade with the most improvement, by far!

UPDATE: I am moving this weekend to my new place! This also means that my Fiero projects will now start to move forward again...full steam!

I ordered my touch-screen deck:


Stephen is coming over Sunday to finish the rear brakes and bleed everything.

Once that is done, we will drop her down...finally after a year in the air!

Blue dream and my new 88 will be loaded on a flatbed trailer and they will be trailer'd to my paint & body shop.

Once they are there, they will finish moving the remainder of the 88's body panels onto BluDrm while inserting a few of Jimmy's panels.

Then sanding, priming, and painting.

The shop I am bringing them to also does custom interiors. So I am going to have them install my G1 dash, Zimmer Quicksilver door panels, and new seats.

Once the shop has the body panels off the 88, they will let me know it is ready for pickup.

The 88 will then be trailer'd to Knoxville for member EVM_Rob to have my MERA body installed and prep'd for paint!

(AMIDA...get ready...I will be needing 2 more G1 dashes! and maybe you will have some matching door panels?)

UPDATE:

I finally got the last of my things (my Fieros) out of my old house:





Found a great company with a great setup and fair prices!
If you are in the DFW area and need a car transported...this is the guys to use!

I am in the new house!

The garages & home office are making progress:
















They still have the driveway (12x320)


& do the sidewalks and 3 extra parking spaces for guests...like Mr. Poe...who is is even getting a dedicated bay for his car and tools in my new climate controlled Fiero Cave!





Simultaneously they will be building both 30x40 Steel Beamed Metal buildings

Should all be completed in the next 2 weeks!

More Updates to come shortly...once my Fiero Cave is complete...back to the projects!

Well we have some serious progress...the entire driveway, sidewalks and guest parking spaces have all been poured...that was a lot of concrete and finishing work!
Driveway is 12x350, two 30x40 pads with standard sidewalks surrounding both buildings, a sidewalk to the front door, a side walk to back pool & patio, another 30x25 pad between the house and one of the 30x40 buildings that will be another patio area eventually and 3 guest parking spots...like I said before...THAT'S A LOT OF CONCRETE!

Builders started welding together the steal beams for the 1st 30x40 building. This one should be completed by next Tuesday.

The 2nd one by next Friday...this is going to be my FieroCave!

I will post pictures tomorrow...it was too late too take pictures tonight.

Lucky man !

You don't have to worry about the cold. Here in Saguenay, Quebec Canada the freeze goes down to 42 inches in the ground so we can't build the way you do.

UPDATE:
My metal buildings are taking a little longer than expected:

a text from my builder yesterday:

"We can't hang siding in 25 mph wind. It's like handling 3 foot wide razor blades. Wind is supposed to only be 10 tomorrow so we will be there early. I'm calling around trying to find additional help to make it quicker."

This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

But they are here today and hanging the metal panels

UPDATE: Finally...I have one of the 30x40 buildings completed...can get some of the stuff out of my totally over packed house

They are supposed to start on the 2nd building tomorrow, but I am not counting on it....been too many delays already...but maybe sometime by the end of next week, I will have my Fierocave up and ready for power.

Once the building is ready...I have a few things to button up and tighten down on BluDrm before she will go to the body shop for paint...getting a few steps closer to getting this one completed and as my daily driver!

On another front...working out a date in the next few weeks for EVM_Rob to come down and pick up my newest 88GT that he is installing a MERA body on and prepping her for paint....goal is to have her back by Easter.

UPDATE: High winds have delayed the skinning of my FieroCave, but they will be here tomorrow to continue

Getting Ramp'd up to finish off BluDrm, but I need a few more weeks to get organized...since the FieroCave is running behind.

So Barbie (my Wife's 88GT) is going to go in for fresh paint on Sunday.

Once she gets back, I should be ready to hand over Blu-Drm to my paint and body guy.

On another note, I think I am going to get my other 88 shipped to Knoxville in the next two weeks..get ready Rob!

Looks like we are getting close on the very 1st set of Zimmer Quicksilver door panels, but time will tell.

I have an order in with Amida for 2 sets of his new G1 door panels and another G1 dash...this one is for Barbie...the wife wants all the new upgrades now too!
