I mean the actual font to download and use on my computer. However, nevermind! I found it by simply searching PFF. Of course!

I found some damage
The car must have been hit in the passenger side right behind the door. They tried to pound out the damage but couldn't. Sooooo they filled it in with Great Stuff!

Good news is the rear of the car is pretty much rust free. The battery area shows very little rust. So if any one need a rear section I could cut it off.

I also scored some KYB shocks from the front.They look pretty new!

Steve


yup my upper frame rails are pretty much swiss cheese so if those ones are solid I should prob buy them off u and weld them into my car, just drill the welds and it should pop off!

Anybody need anything?

It's a silver 86 SE V-6 auto with a rod knock. Most of the grey interior is gone or shot.

It did have 4 awesome looking inner wheel well liners.

Oh and Jets the tires are P215-60-14's not P205's.

Steve


so do u think they would fit? 205 is taller than the 195 a bit huh? my car sits really low on 195's id kinda like to keep it at that height plus my shocks are shot so 205's may rub lol but hey bring one along and lets see if it fits!

Crap. The dells run is in two weeks. I really want to be at that show.... How far is it from the dells to your house Jets? Because after the show (it ends at 4) I would be up to heading to your place, since I highly doubt my fiero will be working by then and I'ld more than likely be in my datsun.

All other things being equal, that also means the speed of jetsnvettes' Fiero (assuming those stats can be applied to the rear tires) will be slightly less than what it was previously (by about 2.4%), but it likely also will exhibit slightly quicker acceleration.

IMHO, however, I wouldn't regard either as a large difference.

If you want to. It's a truck though.

I think I'll do that then. I'll head over to your place once the show's done Rob. As for your headliner, I have a feeling the glue is not the problem. It's probably the 20+ year old foam. I think you are going to have to pull it, scrape it clean, and start fresh. I used one of the 3M brand products (I don't remember which) and it's held up for several years now.

Much to my surprise, there actually is a recent, late 2009 thread on this forum's Technical Discussion & Questions section, devoted to "Headliner Glue" ( //www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/104585.html ). Aside from the 3M adhesive you'd mentioned, those posting to that thread also mention using a construction adhesive instead, or pointed out that problems can arise from the foam backing of the headliner deteriorating --- regardless of the adhesive being used.

There also are some older, archived threads on this forum re "headliner glue" which recommend either Permatex Headliner Glue, Henry Carpet Adhesive from Lowes, 3M Foamfast74, Scotch 77, 3M "Super Trim Adheisive, DAP (Weldwood) Contact Adhesive (yellow, not white, and used with a spray gun, not a spray can), or 3M 8090.

In my own case, when I found the sagging headliner of my Fiero was attributable at least in part to the deterioration of its foam backing, I lost whatever patience I had for any of this and "cheated" by taking the car to a locally reputable upholstery shop. That was several years ago, and their repair still looks just as good now as it did the day it was new.

hey guys the foam is new on my headliner it came atatched to the new material, i think i am going to have to just bite the bullet and kill a gun and use the heavy duty spray cement, so since i am doing this if any of u need a headliner glued now is the time to run to hancocks and get some headliner material, i got five yards for around thirty bucks, that should be enough to do two anyway since i am doin it again and killin gun u guys midas well use it too before it hardens

Has anyone been able to revise that logo you all like? Personally I feel it is a bit cluttered. Something to represent the group should be a bit more simple and recognizable. There's just way too much going on. If you look at most businesses and other clubs, they use something simple for the logo (for instance the banner at the top of this forum).

If I were to choose from the logos, I like the Sadie's and the Pontiac arrowhead fox one the best. When I look at Sadies, however, it is almost a simpler version of the fox design, as the two F's resemble the ears and whiskers as well as the letters of the club name, with the Pontiac arrowhead completing it with it's V shape.

I'm not trying to knock the shield/Fiero badge design, but my head spins a little when I look at it. It may just be because it was made in Paint and just needs to be smoothed out a bit. I wouldn't put it on my car as a decal though, because in order to see all the details would have to be large. In that case I would opt for a URL decal or something.

I hope that this is taken as constructive criticism and not as an attack on that particular logo. That is definitely not my intention. I am very much for what the club is about and about bringing people together. And if the majority likes it, I say go for it and I will support it =). We all have different tastes!

If any of you are going to the Dells I'll see ya there =). i'll be there with Sadie G. and company.

I earlier had some difficulty deciphering what the illustration in the lower left quadrant of the shield represented, until somebody confirmed to me it was a valley. However, in all fairness, I'm having more difficulty seeing in your favored logo what you see being represented --- even after you explain it:

Perhaps more importantly, to a stranger first seeing each logo without any explanation of it, I don't see why the fox presumably represented in the second logo would be more intuitively obvious to that stranger than would be the valley in the lower left quadrant of the first one.


Overall, however, with regard to what has been said earlier about those two logos, I agree most with what av8fiero suggested:

but I would suggest that the black band in the middle have the curve flipped over and have the text inside it curved to match. I would also suggest curving the top line of the shield as well. That way it will be more similar to a fiero badge. Also if the fonts in the black band could be changed to the style used in this logo.
I think that would look nicer [I know, lots of changes but I think it will improve the look of the logo]

After making those or similar changes, then to simplify things further, maybe we could substitute for the shield's four quadrants, just two bisections under the "Fox Valley Fieros" text (after moving that name's text closer to the top), and each bisection could simply depict the two Fieros currently shown: one with a fastback, and one with a notchie.

I agree with you, if it is the shield/badge logo, it would be nice to simplify it a tad.

I know that Sadie really didn't make hers to represent a Fox anyhow, it's just what I saw it in after I saw the other logo made to look like a fox. The ends of the F's made the logo as a whole like an abstraction of a fox head to me. Sometimes my way of thinking is a little abstract anyhow, lol.

Anyhow, my favorites are Sadies and the Pontiac Fox, but a simplified shield/badge also works. All that matters is that the club is represented the way they feel best =).

Again, it's not my intent to offend anyone, and I do sincerely apologize if I have, but I'm just offering my thoughts. Anyway, I should consider myself lucky that you're welcoming a Beretta guy that also happens to love Fieros to your meets =D.

It would be cool if something could be done with the outline of a Fiero, or to divide them in a different way, or not at all. I wish I was better at the design side of things. I have ideas but I just can't really draw them. Something like a simple valley scene with a Fiero outline or silhouette in it in the large part of the badge (something kind of like what is in the logo image page, but not that exactly). It really doesn't have to be a perfect representation of a Fiero either, as long as it's what you take away from the design.

I guess I'm just taking some advice from a book about design that I've read. If something is drawn too realistically, it's harder to relate to it or like it.

Like here, for instance, not all the details are visible but you know it's a Beretta.:


Or the Beretta.net logo that uses just a silhouette of the car:


I wish I had some more time, I'd play around a bit too.

I do think the Fox badge is pretty clever. I'd like to see it with "Fieros" instead of just "Fiero". Or even on it's own it is pretty cool.

Hopefully SAFASTRO will come up with a possible logo this week for everyone to see and we'll have another option. I really don't mind what logo you all choose, but I do agree it needs to be ledgible without having to be giant. That said I still like the 4 quadrant logo the best, I think it just needs to be refined some. Just my 2 cents, whatever you guys and girls want to do is fine with me

I agree, but I think that actually is a bit different from part of what av8fiero meant to say:

I know you mentioned earlier in this thread, jetsnvettes, that it was difficult to alter the curvature of the "Fox Cities Fieros" text, but let's focus for a moment just on what av8fiero called the "black band" in the middle. Although in what I quoted just above, he said "curve" (singular) instead of curves (plural), the black band actually had two curves originally, one at its top and one at its bottom, but when you flipped the black band, you also eliminated one of that band's curves.

Another difference in this latest version is you put "Fox Cities Fieros" all on just one line, instead of its earlier two, which could make that text more difficult to read at a distance, as well as perhaps creating an overabundance of white space between that text and the Fieros depicted below it.

Accordingly, what I would envision there would be a return to the two curves of the black band, the two lines of text for "Fox Valley Fieros," both in equally larger font, and set within a larger black band to make the text easier to read, while also cutting down on unused white space between the larger black band containg that text and the two Fieros depicted beneath it.

However, I'll also readily concede, jetsnvettes, that for me, all this is "easier said than done," because frankly, I don't know how to actually implement any of those changes.


Therefore, thanks much for having tried to at least give it a shot.

Id have to agree I still like the cleaned up one the best of the bunch I have alterd but I think i would loose the valley scene and put somthin alittle more easly defined in the spot say maby the pontiac symbol

i would say for now we take a break from the whole symbol thing and just Take a vote on all fo them then divide it all up and vote again based on whats left and so on until the winning symbol is picked in a popular consensus.

Not bad ideas. I'm working a lot, so I can't play with things right now, but when I get time, I'll try and redo Jetsnvettes logos in Photoshop completely, so that all the edges are smoothed, text is curved, and things are easier to see.

As for my logo, I would add an "S" to fiero if I had the fiero font. I'll have to find and download that too. I know it's on PFF. I downloaded it on a different computer once....

I take it the website is working fine. If something needs to be changed or updated, pm me here. (I check this site more often, for now).

Yes. That is much more along the lines of what I was thinking. Thanks!


Like you and av8fiero, I'm also interested in seeing what club logo SAFASTRO comes up with, but in the meantime, is there an easy way to make those two Fieros in the one immediately above look more nearly the same size? (My guess is this logo would look even better with the "Fox Valley Fieros" club name in "Fiero font," and curved to correspond with the curved "black bar" in which our club name resides, but maybe somebody else can help us with that.)

I'd guess jetsnvettes would appreciate those offers, Bradbitz11 and 86fierofun, because I'd think we'd eventually have a vinyl decal, and because of the difficulties he's reported encountering with smoothing the shield's curved edges, as well as curving the text.

Adding the "S" in Fiero font makes sense to me as well; just please don't put an apostrophe in front of that "S" in "Fieros" as a different Fiero club actually did in their logo.


As for the Fiero font itself, I think sadie good already may have found that someplace here on PFF, so you may want to check with her first:

Making the shield's cars appear more equal in size would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Also, your interest in finding clearer illustrations of them (like the one at the upper left corner of each PFF page?) sounds like that could result in an improvement as well.

However, I'm not so sure about the benefit of an exploded or cutaway view, given our attempts to simplify things. Nonetheless, if you're looking for an "exploded view of one or a cutaway," I'd think you'd need look absolutely no further than the pictures posted here just a little more than one hour ago by 86soon3.4. Those pictures seem to me likely to be the most "exploded" and "cutaway" of any Fiero you'll ever find!
