Hi, guys!

There was no post from me for long time, so I will post some pictures about things was done for past time.

I has modified stock wiring diagram of Fiero and add some fuses and relays.

Battery moved to the front compartment. But without spare wheel removal.



Made changes in ignition lock wiring.


Fuse and relay block and power harnesses.

And here I has started front suspension modification:

As you can see I has cut off stock brake rotor.


Removed turning knuckle


And began the deal about conversion to shift from stock fiero lower ball joint to other one.


The trouble was in that's the new ball joint, that i wanted to use, have other tapered bore, than stock Fiero.
I hasn't find correct reamer tool on market, so my father has offered to manufacture it by ourself forces.

We made it from the conic shank of ball joint.




Hardening by fast cooling in oil.




Reamer tool is ready to use

Hope you're interested about some new photos of past progress:

As, maybe, you can remember I was bought rims for my Plazma (couple pages past).
But problem it's they're 7" wide. So at front, with my front suspension modification, it will fit perfectly. But for rear wheels it's too slim.
So I bought couple of a new rims. Same design, but other size.
These are 18x9 Rays Volk Racing GT-C face 2.
Some pure JDM style on that American car with Russian soul.




And I have modified front compartment harnesses to shift from 1gen headlights to 2gen.
Some of you told me I need to change all front compartment harnesses to do this, but it's not really truth!
I had complete 2gen headlight units, control unit and connectors. And when I look at wiring diagram I have seen that some minor wiring changes would be enough.
So thats it: 1gen harnesses modified to work with 2 gen headlights:



Hope you're enjoyed it!

I'm glad you're back updating this thread, it's always a pleasure seeing creative engineering and I'm excited to see this finished one day!

Question: will the mod (the notch) to the hub that you made son you could get at the brake adapter unbalance it?

I think everything will be OK!
Don't worry!
Some disbalance on that small diameter wouldn't be noticeable.

Hey, here is couple photos about e-brake lever and cylinder.

As you can remember, on my Plazma I will use hydraulic e-brake system.
So it's built using Girling 0,625 master cylinder and modified lever from russian car.

Measurement for bracket design.


Bracket manufacturing moments.






Almost ready




Ready



Hope you enjoyed it!
