Well, it is not too bad, I would recommend having the windows before you cut tho so you can use then as a template. Plus Archie sends a back window template with the back window if you buy it from him. I have the back window template if you want to buy the back glass locally. Other than that doing the chop gets pretty involved but is not too bad if you have some welding skills and basic body working skills.

Electrical problems may be the most difficult to solve, so you have my sympathies.

Out of curiosity, what are the symptoms of the electrical problems you're having with your choptop Fiero?

Well after replacing a ton of parts last year including new fuel pump dizzy and coil it randomly does not want to start. It is totally odd, one moment it has spark and the next its like the module went to hell. Last weekend we were in Green Bay for the car show at the tech, the car was out in the lot all day and ran fine getting there but I did notice after getting to Wallmart the fuel gauge was pegged and not working. I went across the street and was able to put 6 gallons in it confirming it was not working. Ok no prob typical Fiero prob and got in it mind you this would be the 4th start of the day with no prob. We got to the show and I parked it in my spot and left it for the day. $ comes and time to go and cranking and no go. We pull the cap and rotor and do a few quick test and no spark. So I went down to the tech and asked to borrow a few tools since we were at the auto tech school, By the time I got back we decided to try it one more time and nope no fire so we rolled it down the hill to the school and for shits and giggles I decided to try one more time before and it started WTF&^%$# this is the same damn problem we tried to fix last summer with I guess no fix.. I just got done switching the ignition switch and freshened up all the grounds I could get to, I hope this helps but the fuel gauge is still not working. I suspect the problem is still not fixed but till it does it again I will not know and I have a feeling it is when I will be a long way from home. In short I am afraid to even drive the damn thing now.

I wonder if the ignition control module (ICM) in your Fiero has "went to hell", as you've alluded to. That, like the faulty fuel gauge readings you're seeing, as you know, is not an uncommon problem with Fieros.

Just before its ignition control module was replaced, my `86 V6 engine simply would quit, but not on a short trip where the engine never really got warm. It died after being on the road for awhile --- somewhere, if I recall correctly, on Highway 41 between Oshkosh and Fond du Lac --- that had a bunch of windmills very nearby the roadway and basically nothing else. For that reason, I understand your trepidation about driving your Fiero even moderately long distances at present:

In my case, when my Fiero engine's ICM began to fail, it didn't sputter, stumble, or exhibit any drama like that. Instead, it just quit running, almost as "cleanly" and with as little fanfare as a light bulb connected to a light switch that simply had been turned off by someone.

My V6 would restart, but only after waiting for it to cool down. Eventually though, it never started again, until after its ICM was replaced.
***
On a lighter note, congratulations to you and Steve on the car show plaques you received on May 11.

I have wondered if it is the ECM, last summer when I was going to two rivers it just stopped running while driving 65 I got to the side of the road and it started hard after a few tries and ran horrible for about a mile till I got to a gas station. I shut it down for about 5 minutes wiggled the wires in the engine bay a bit and back to normal? odd to say the least. it ran fine all the way home after that.

Question????
Before we parked my 86 (due to the fuel issue) the transmission would not do reverse. It would go into reverse but it would not move. All other gears seemed to work fine. There was no pop, smoke or smell it just stopped backing up. Checked the fluid, it was not burned. the stick i got for it I couldn't really tell if its low. The question is, if its not just low on fluid what other vacuum operated front wheel drive transmissions will work. It currently has a th440 out of a caddy. Id like to stay away from a electronic shift due to the expense. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jake

OK Update, I guess if the trans isn't something simple, I may go with a 4t-60e and a shift computer. Any thoughts?

Hmmmm that is a really good question for Steve, he has that non computer controlled trani in his car rigged up to work with his 3800 I bet he could figure out a better trani that has no need for a shift computer.

I may have another 3800sc swap on the horizon!!!

My mother-in-law's future husband has a 76' Jeep CJ7 and wants to swap in a newer V-6....

Of course I suggested the 3800SC.

I may need some wiring help....Phonedawgs

It has a 400 gm turbo hydramatic with quadratrac he wants to keep so I will have to find an adapter.

We will see how this will all turn out as the Jeep is in Missouri and I am in Wisconsin.

If your mother-in-law's future husband has a 76' Jeep CJ7 (76' IS the abbreviation for "76-foot-long", is it not?) , he's likely far more problems than easily can be remedied simply by swapping in a newer V-6.

Accordingly, if all of you go out to dinner sometime, I suggest you yourself take your Fiero.

Besides, I'd think the parking meter fees required during your dinners to keep legally parked a 76-foot-long Jeep CJ7 would be enormous.

Hello,
We have another person who wants to enter the select group of Fiero Owners. My son is looking for a Fiero. Needs to be reliable(ish). Anyone know of any around? He don't have a crap ton of loot to spend, but i thought Id ask anyway. 1000 or less id suppose. Not sure he just wants one...awww in all of his 22 years of life the one thing he got from me is the Fiero Gene.

So no luck on the Fiero for my son. It was spur on the moment. I'll keep looking. On the V8 Front...While i was home this weekend I did get my 86 started and ran it for about 5 mins...lol then it ran out of gas. Apperently no one serviced it since i left. so no gas, no gas protection all winter...wheeeee!!! it didnt seem to have any ill effects tho. my tach isnt working i think a wire came off distributor, Checked Trans fluid cold...( i know supposed to be hot ) I think its real low. it was barely 1/2 inch up the stick with all fluid in the pan. So I'm hoping it is just low on fluid and thats why i lost reverse. So i decided in a few weeks im going to come back up and drop the gas tank and re do the entire fuel line system from pick up to carb. hope it will solve the stall issue on hard acceleration. if not ill adjust the floats.
