How do you guys do it? Ive been working on this for 3 months. I have no desire to finish it really. I will buy stuff to finish it but just dont have the drive to want to finish it. Im at the point where i need to clean the garage and pull my old engine. I dont have a car at the moment and miss my fiero but with no one to help me pull the engine its kinda rough. I just lost my drive to finish it.

I find it helps to look at other people's finished projects, nothing gets me going like seeing a sexy fiero

I run into that from time to time, it's just plain hard. When I find myself sitting there watching t.v. and thinking about the car, I force myself to turn off the t.v. and go do 1 thing to the car. doesn't matter if it's just installing the new spark plugs in the motor that's about to go in, I just force myself to do it. If you do 1 thing per day you'll be surprised how quickly you'll make progress and your drive will return on it's own as you see yourself approaching completion and the "to do" list dwindling.

p.s. sorry if I sound like a rambling idiot, kinda drunk right now. Lol

Between the family, Coast Guard, and life, its taken me a little over a year to drive mine. But, a 4.9 Allante is such a ride. Every time I gave it more than 1/3 throttle in 2nd she breaks free. Yes I need new tires and it had rained, but man, what a ride.

Keep the end goal in mind, imangine that first ride (and all the others), hit up the forum for questions and you'll get there. Come on, if I can, yours will be better....

Same way I get my car fixed when it breaks down. It goes into "timeout" until I am ready to work on it again and drive my truck instead. For instance right now I've got a coil or ICM going out on my L67 car that is causing it to die when it gets near operating temp, so it'll sit there til I'm ready to work on it again. I go out and start it once a week or so until it starts warming up and cutting out again.

I can't decide if it is the want to finish what I started (I always get in over my head) or the want to start the next project (only one at a time).

I've had my '87 GT since January of '08 and all I've done is put my brake package on from the Fiero Store. Oh, and a new heater core after I got it. Other than that...........nothing. I could've had it on the road soon if it wasn't for my Z24. I had a full suspension lined up for it, but now it will have to wait a little longer

Each day I have to walk my the 3.8SC sitting there on the garage floor and just shake my head . Ahh, one day it will get done. Ya just have to keep chippin' away at it. That's what I keep in my mind.......stay positive.

"How do you get the "drive" to finish you project car?"

By doing something on it everyday, even if it is only a few minutes for a particular day.

Do NOT let it sit! If you do, give yourself an "L".

This thing car is now on a mental level. I will walk into a auto parts store for a nut or bolt. On a sub-conscious level it makes me grab everything off the shelfs and buy it. My new fiero goodies will then be taken home and stored and never put on. I just bought some side scoops. I know damn well those scoops will never make it on the car.

first have a clear picture in you head or on paper of what it is you want it to be when it is done, this is a big one too many people start a build and have no idea what it is they want from it. in the end it will cost you way more and will never get done.
I take a project and brake it up into sections that I know that I can finish fast so progress is always made. with larger tasks I will sometimes do 2 or 3 of them at once so if I get burned out on one part I can always work on another one and then later go back to the first part. this keeps the project going and keeps it fresh for you.

I have found that I love to build them but it is great to see all you work pay off in the end.

this is a common problem for many people, if you don't think you can finish it find someone that can come over and help or take it to someone that can do it for you.
I know you may be thinking it would cost too much to do that but trust me in the end it would cost less and you would have the car you always wanted rather than selling it for way less than you have in it and be out a car.

food for thought

Good luck and don't give up. you will get it done.

Silver GTs are sweet! My drive took several years. It sat dormant many a time, for many a month. The time and effort put forth, is always worth it in the end. Nothing like being able to say that you did it yourself. Good luck man...

"How do you get the "drive" to finish you project car?"

4535 posts in 16 months? The real question is, How do you get the "drive" to spend your life typing on PFF?

Before every future post, do one thing on the car, even if it's just removing a nut.

I don't think removing nuts makes for a very driveable car…

I can't even work on my Fiero right now really, because it's the only car I have that is driveable. Though my S-10 will be back on the road in a couple days. My Mini won't start, and I can't figure out what is wrong with it. At this point, I think the ECU may actually be bad. But having it decide to no longer start did give me a bit more motivation to getting the S-10 fixed up. That, and I need the S-10 to go pick up the LS4 when it gets to the freight terminal, and an engine hoist, and lots of other things for my Fiero.

Same boat here, although the plethora of beautiful fieros around Spokane and their owners taunting me to finish mine helps.. My personal motivator is the desire to drive to the Fiero Fest this year (early August in Richland, WA). I won't have it painted by then, but I want to drive it VERY badly.

My wife's constantly hollering at me to finish that car or burn it. That helps too..

Never stop the project. Nose to the grind stone. I estimate the entire scope of the project before hand and know the it will take 50% to 100% more effort and money than I had planned. For me it has to be a project I want so bad that I never want to quit. Other wise, it is not worth starting.

Requirements for motivation:

A well lighted 2 bay garage with heat & air.
A car lift.
A full compliment of tools.
A utility cart to set your parts on so you dont have to bend over.
And a free helper to hand you tools and assist you.

Once these are aquired you'll wonder how you ever made it thru life without them.

And always set a deadline for the project & like previous post,, do something to the car everyday. Even if its in the driveway on your back. I been there too.

Here's how I get my dedcation - I look at the 3 or 4 other projects I have waiting in line for garage space - it motivates me to keep it moving. I do feel your pain though - sometimes I just run out of steam. Then somebody gives me a boot in the butt and I get moving again. Here's you boot in the butt form me.......... Take a deep breath - stand back and "visualize" your end result and then get after it.

It helps to have another Fiero to drive around in
when you have to have that "fix" that every Fiero owner needs.
(yes, I know many have only one Fiero)

I go crazy if I cant drive my Fiero at least every two weeks.

Easiest way for me is to not depend on having it running ever again!
Then it's fun, not work.

Just get a sawzall and get mad one night. The rest is cake.

this should give you a little push. I took my car to the Dells and won big at the show and had a great time talking to everyone about the car.

Which side scoops? I may be able to give you some money and take that burden off your hands. PM me if you're willing!

Where do I get the "drive" to finish it?
I usually sit in the driver's seat and push on the disconnected accelerator, clutch, and brake pedals while moving around the infinitely-variable shifter and rocking the semi-connected steering wheel back and forth while making motor-boat noises right before the PSHHHT! sound of the invisible BOV, all while trying to avoid the inevitable imaginary burst right through the closed garage door.

At least, that is, before I had to give in , so I sent my car off to the Haus of Guru (bmwguru's shop).
Now the drive comes from knowing that if I don't work my sickly butt off at my job, not only won't I have a running turbo Fiero or a new daily driver Camaro, we won't have food, a house, or a/c and heat either.

------------------
'88 Fiero GT - coming soon! - Project MIDTRBO

'10 Camaro LT/RS, 312hp V6 6-speed -

The rest of my cars are for sale
There's no replacement for turbo placement

When i started restoring mine i just focused all my time, money, and energy on getting it running & drivable on the road first.. Which took me about 5 months too get done.. I didnt spend money on anything else for the car.. Now that i can drive it when i want too, now im doing all the upgrades, and cosmetic stuff. So i can enjoy the car while upgrading it at the same time. There will always be down time, like when i swap a 3.4 in, two months from now.

I also find its helpfull to pay someone to do the really big jobs for you.. Like my engine swap will be done at the Fiero Factory. I just dont really have the space, and time to do it myself. So spending the extra cash to get it done for me is worth it to me. And the upside to that is the downtime for my car will probably be a few weeks, instead of months or possibly years too do it myself.

So focus Antuzzi.. Put all your energy and money into getting it running and back on the road. Stop blowing money on other "goodies" when you hit up the auto parts store, and you'll get there.

I dont plan the whole project from the start. I do it bit by bit, making small little goals at a time and trying to stay busy on it till that specific goal is done. Then after your feeling of accomplishment, move on to the next. Sometimes total takes a few years, but you get a bunch of gratification along the way as you complete each goal at a time. Its now my full time goal to stop this tranny from leaking, lol. Im determined Im going to stop it even if it takes welding the pan on permanently.

It can be quite overwhelming at times. It took me about a year to complete my t-top coupe. All I did was put one foot in front of the other not thinking about all the work required...in the end I did a complete rebuild all new hoses, seals, belts, weatherstrips, brakes, clutch, engine upgrade, new transmission, interior and paint. Last year I drove it to the Jet City Fieros picnic (Arlington WA) half painted, missing body panels and with no interior. But I was driving it. You can get there. Just take it one step at a time and don't rip everything apart at once. I have a great set of tools, and an unheated garage, but no other great toys.
