This is my first official post...But I have to say Yay! I have finally caught up with this thread. I have been reading it off and on during my down time at work over the last few days.

Great work. Unfortunately, I don't get all the images you post, but I get enough of them. I am going to have to re-read some of the stuff regarding your auto PC stuff. Have you considered using raspberry pi for your systems?

WELCOME to the FUN & CHAOS ClumsySmurf! And I am honored that you choose my Thread to comment upon first

In regards to the customized systems, I have played with AutoPCs, Android, & R-PIs...there is give and take on each depending the applications intended to be run. Best bang for the buck is to get an off the shelf Android infotainment touch screen & an USB to OBDII adapter or Bluetooth and you are good to go with a lot of functionality. Now in regards to the R-PIs...I am going to be utilizing them in a re-active body panel design (eventually to come into fruition next year) to control the motors of the many exterior inter-active body panels.

Well had J-Ray's Modified 87 GT here for the past few days. Mr. Poe stopped by and we changed out the clutch on her.


She is ready for the road again!

Yes Rob...but I didn't like the way the blue came out the last time...was too dark...looked more like black rather than blue.

Liking this color of blue a lot better!

Is it simple to remove & replace the seal around the windshield?

I have a guy that works for Safelite that handles all my Fiero's.

He has to destroy the old seal to remove and then cleans the glass and re-installs with new seal. He also utilizes a seal that is for another vehicle...it wraps around the back edge of the glass as well & looks great...IMO!

I saw that car over near my daughter's house in Wylie. Stopped to see if he would be interested in the monthly NTRC meeting, but nobody home.
Maybe it will have a better home soon.

My son decided not to go with the Fiero above...he decided he really wants a 5 speed and will wait for the right Fiero.

NON-Fiero Updates: I have been busy with work, the kids & grand-kids, and doing some projects for the home.

Like replacing the LPG instant hot water heater. I replaced the 13 year old BOSH Aquastar 1600



with a brand new Noritz ProTough NR981-SV unit.



Have some painting to do in this utility closet now

Driving "Barbie" home last night from the airport...I noticed my window fogged up about half way home with a distinct smell of antifreeze.
I believe my heater core has sprung a leak...it is still her original one from factory.
Need to try set some time aside and see if I can tear into her this weekend....at least I have a extra new unit on the shelves in the FieroCave.
