Cried over it, as I discovered that last week while the kids stayed here before their move, the grandchild thought it would be fun to climb all over the outside of the fiero under the cover!... Hoping I can buff out the scratches in the clearcoat before I kill my son who thinks it's no big deal.
I discovered why children are cute.... It's so we dont kill them.
Removed both front calipers and hoses for the new ones with pads tomorrow. Worked on the Ac line routing and securing some more. I hope to be through with the AC stuff before Monday morning. New clutch master is here now just waiting for me to put it on. All new master, slave, and pedal. I hope that ends all of this clutch just not quite working crap.
today i tore apart half of my interior to rebuild my shifter with rodneys kit, and since i had to remove the skeloten i am repairing some cracks in it that im gonna go glue up here in a few min. and then tomorrow im going to put some sound deadning material on the firewall, and put everything back together
I started mine for the first time in over a year after some major overheating followed by rod knock.
It made a horrible squealing noise, accompanied by softer fiero-like sounds. I think it might just be some hardware self-clearancing... somewhere. I'm going to take another look at it tomorrow and try to find out the cause of all the racket.
Went to the Barberino POCI show today. It's one of the closer shows to me but they don't have a Fiero class. I left before they gave out the trophies as I was just there to see the cars and some Fiero friends.
I installed new sunroof tabs and sunroof tab clips from the Fiero Store( Part # 64101) and then took it for a drive to Wee Willy's. Wanted to find out if they stopped the sunroof from rattling. Seems to work!
I just received an email telling me that my car took third place in the show I was in today. It was an all Pontiac show and I was in the 1977 to present class that included a brand new Soltice. I guess my car still shows good.

I was going to hold off on this, but here are some pics that the previous owner had that were sent to him when he was looking to buy it. It's essentially the same as seen here as the previous owner has had it in his garage collecting dust; awaiting me to turn it into the GT that it's always wanted to be.
I have some things in the works that are going to ruffle a few feathers for those who like to leave things pretty "stock." Its an 88GT w/ a 5 speed and just over 2oK on the clock.
Raydar; your correct man - the little lady and I have missed my old Fiero from about the hour that we saw it leave the house to the current owner who is actually only about 3o min away. Good thing about that is he continues to refer to it as "my GT" and I have visitation rights every other weekend.
Bought the Fiero from here: http://norfolk.craigslist.org/car/402247223.html and after getting the engine installed and the thing towed to my driveway, I finally got a chance to work on it. Got the rear wheel liner put in on the passenger side, bled the brakes and discovered that the left and right emergency brake cables are garbage. Stretched so badly there is not enough adjustment to get it right. Also installed the Pioneers up front and the Polks in the B pillar today.
Tomorrow I plan on installing the 98 Grand Prix CD player and then trying to confirm the temp sensor and the oil pressure sender are bad.
Installed the pump for the intercooler and wired it up. Had a hard time finding a good spot for it, and finally decided on the front under the right side headlight bucket (inside the wheel well). Got the hard lines installed to the back, but still need to plumb the hoses from the HE and core to the hard lines. Also still debating on a good spot for the reservoir, but it looks like behind the supercharger - similar to the way Loyde did one of his - will be the spot I am trying to keep it level with or higher than the I/C core hoses.
Removed battery and put it on a trickle charger. The car has not been started for almost two months.
