Just wanted to say hi. Bought my first Fiero over the weekend. Always wanted one so pulled the trigger. Needs some work but is in pretty good shape. Its an 87 SE notch back, black 5 speed. Have been reading some of the forum lately trying to get ideas and see how these cars work. I did find a post on the headlight modification. I think it uses the Hella projector lights and a custom holder made by a couple guys on the board. I found the price for the bracket but how about the lights themselves. Is there a kit being sold or do you have to piece the mod together? A little more info would be great about that. I really like the way they look on the cars. Thanks, John
Welcome to the forum! Next to your owners manual (http://www.fieronews.net/fusion/downloads.php) this place is going to be your best resource for all the problems your Fiero will undoubtedly give you. ;-)
As TopNotch said, we'd love to see photos of the car!

Thanks guys, great to be here. Its a 5 speed v6. The person I bought it from rebuilt the engine so it only has 4000 miles on it. I will get pictures up as soon as I can. Its not perfect but its something I can work on. The main thing it needs on the outside is a new hood. This one is all chipped up in the front and also the lights don't sit flush because of it. So right now I am looking for a hood. Bought it Saturday and Monday already bought some upgrade parts. I like this car and its fun to drive. I can't wait to get out of work so I can drive it. I think I might have a problem.

Wow, this place is great. Thanks for all the offers of help. I might have to take you up on that guys. The one problem I am having now is with the 5 speed. I have a hard time shifting it into gear. I found the 5 speed manual in pdf format so I need to read up on it but if someone has the expertise of adjusting the linkages I could use some help or advise with that. I just received the short shifter from the Fiero store so I will need to put that in first. Right now I really cant shift into 5 gear when doing above 60 mph and 1st gear is a pain to get into also. OK now I have to ask. What is the running joke about the notch back Fieros. Just wondering from the above posts. I love the way it looks. I will get pictures of it soon and no I have not posted pictures of it anywhere yet, so its not me. Thanks guys, John
It's kinda like how way back when you could get a coupe mustang and a fastback mustang. A lot of people view the fastback Fiero's as "more desirable", so the notchies can end up being step children at times. My first Fiero was a notch back (which I didn't mind), but it had the bumper pad style bumpers found on the base 84/85 models... which can look good, but mine was a really faded white.
I've been on several car forums and Pennock's seems to be one of the friendlier ones; and since the cars have been around fora while it is highly unlikely you will run into a problem that someone hasn't had before.

Now here is the first thing I did trying to fix my hard shifting. The bracket was a little rusty so shot it. New bushings and a short shifter. Found out its the slave cylinder letting air in. Ordered one so now waiting for it to arrive.
