At the moment, all I have pics of is the chassis with a Fejer 308 kit "sitting" on it. The car is at my "shop" which I don't get to go to anymore. It's under a tarp, and the pics I have were taken to show the whole car, as is, WITH the body kit on it, so I don't really have any of the bare space frame...BUT the pics are less than two months old and when I went out to take them, I checked the frame over for rust, corrosion etc., as hard as it might be to believe, it is still pretty "rust free". Anything on it is surface rust or can be easily removed with pressure washing and/or steam cleaning.

It has no back glass in it, as the pass. tub was being prepped for a wrap around rear glass. I believe I still have the stock glass, but I'll have to look to confirm, but nothing has been added or removed in regards to that aspect of the project, only the glass removed in as non invasive way as possible. No damage to the frame and new sealer and glass would put it back to "stock" condition.

Let me see if I can dig up the pics I did take, there are a couple with the door skins off, showing the metal framework of at least the doors. The entire rest of the body kit is basically just "sitting" there, other than maybe a couple bolts to keep it in place.


There's a few to ponder....let me know if you want more, I have a few more, but don't want to "muddy-up" this thread. We can go to email if you'd rather.

HAGO!

*Edit to remove pics, since they are repeated below. No point in cluttering up the thread further!

How much $$$ you thinking??

Sage JAN 14, 08:49 PM
$1,200 with the wheels, $1,000 without. For the frame alone.

Update, the suspension and frame are repaired, it’s getting paint this week. Got the rest of the payout a couple weeks ago. Hopefully the salvage inspection and all goes smoothly.

Hope it comes out alright, the line with the door looks kinda odd. I thought the back side of the door panel has more angle.

Another photo, maybe it just looked odd at that angle.

Yeah this has all turned out better than I expected and what most people on the forum were saying initially. The Fiero seems to be a lot more respectable than it was 10-15 years ago, it’s gaining a lot more classic car status. At times I’ve actually been grateful this happened to it and not my daily driver. I don’t like to see a Fiero damaged but my daily would’ve been totaled and insurance would’ve cut me a check for only like 4k, not nearly enough to fix it and I’d probably would’ve had to get some cheap nasty used car to replace it. And that car, is the only 1 I’ve ever owned since brand new, and it’d be difficult finding a modern used car with a manual trans to replace it.

Hoping now I get the car back fast enough to get it submitted for a casting call for Stranger Things. They have a call out for 1988 and older vehicles. Figure I can swap the stock brakes and wheels back on and it could look good enough to pass for a new car in ‘88 for the show.

It's looking good, man!
I'm happy that it's worked out for you.
