Another side view.
The new door glass shines almost as good as the new paint

Low angle view of the new taillights, (just taped in place to see how they look)
New exhaust, without the new tips, peeking out from underneath.

Since this is a work in progress, I thought maybe I'd show what I started with.
87 GT hardtop with 80k miles on it. Loaded with all power options.
This images is larger than 100K. Click to view.
The car had been sitting stored for 4-5 years and was a mess. It had apparently been involved in fender bender sometime in it's history and had a coupe GT nose on it that had been butchered to fit smooth moldings. Note the nice "new" refurbished proper GT nose from Fiero Warehouse sitting in the background. (Thanks Doug!) Thankfully the chassis was fairly straight even though it showed evidence of having been straightened around the left front corner.

The side glass was horribly scratched by dew wipes that were literally petrified hard as rocks, so new door glass for both sides was ordered from SafeLite, ($102 ea.) Since I had decided to basically completely refurbish the car I started stripping off all the body panels and planned for a panel-off paint job. With the panels off it was an easy job to clean up what little surface rust there was on the chassis and paint with Rustoleum semi gloss black. New window motors, dew wipes, (inner and outer), and power door lock solenoids were installed along with the new side glass.

Then the interior was gutted to prepare for all the new stuff.

The steering column was in bad shape, (amazingly the steering wheel is great shpe though), so I tore the column down using all the info posted here on PFF, (Many Thanks to Jazzman) Tightened up the tilt mechanism, replaced the wiper internal column switch, ignition switch, dimmer switch and turn signal cancel switch. Also replaced the lock cylinder, hazzard flasher knob and turn signal lever while I was at it. The console support skeleton was barely hanging together, cracked in about 100 places, so it was removed and glued back together. Headliner was shot and the fabric literally fell apart like tissue paper, so the liner board was sent out for recovering.



Carolinajoe furnished me with an amazing 100% like new, factory original all black dash, so that went in with the new Sony Expold speakers, Pontiac Monsoon CD Stereo deck, new carpet and Mr. Mikes seats. Speaker covers were re-covered with new all black cloth, (Funny but they look almost purple in photos) Installation had to wait until SafeLite returned to install the new windshield.
Here's the SafeLite guy getting a Fiero windshield out in one piece in under 5 minutes:

Yeah. We sort of have a "thing" for Ponchos around here. The GPGT is the wife's ride and the white Firebird is my trusty old daily driver.
Trying to convince myself that the Fiero will be fun enough to make the voices in my head stop telling me to go buy a new Solstice

Thanks for the compliments

Looks great! I love yellow Fieros. I can't wait to see the progress on your car so please keep the pictures coming.

BTW, it's comforting to know that others here the voices telling them to buy new Pontiacs too. Now if I could just get my wife to hear those voices.
