I am in the process of finishing up a Tier 3 harness for Woodrow on the forum here, and had to order new battery cable to fill an order.

I have 5 4g Cable kits available for shipping by Monday, with another 10 available within a week of that.

These kits include everything you need to wire in your front mount battery to your 85-88 Fiero.
Positive and Negative 4g cable with crimped and heatshrinked ends, 8g power wire from the starter to the C500 power block, two new sidepost battery bolts and a 4g 18" ground lead to ground the engine to the chassis....

For install photos in an 88 and detail shots of the terminal ends, click here

Due to the rise in copper prices, my costs have gone up. These are now 135 shipped to the US (Canada add 10), ready to bolt in.

Shipping is delayed today because the neighbor was kind enough to pile his snow in my side of the driveway, and the main road is not plowed.. Have to wait for the landlord and his snowblower.

I had two sets to ship today. One went to Canada, the other was missing the short ground cable. Thought I had it with me, but it is at home on the workbench.
I will be shipping the remainder of the paid sets tomorrow.

When you relocate the battery, can you still use the spare mount or do you have to put it in the trunk?

Yes, you can still use the spare tire location to store the tire.

There are two caveats though:
The lower lip under the AC fan of the spare tire well will most likely need to be trimmed back an inch or so..
The battery has to be physically small... Putting in the largest side post battery they make will net you some extra weight and decent power, but will prevent you from putting the tire in, even with trimming the lip.
A smaller model sidepost would allow you to get the tire in with a little bit of wiggling... And it holds the battery in place.

Hey guys, sorry I missed this...

I do still make them, but do not have the cable supplies on hand. I have a ton of cable ends, but need to order more battery cable...

No ETA on when the order will be placed.

I don't sell the front trays. V8 Archie sells those.

I know he's not currently producing this stuff, but I just thought I would mention that I have had both his battery cables and 90mm headlight harness for two years now, still with no problems...

Good stuff.

Yes and no. I have most of the supplies to build them, just need to order more cable when finances allow.

What time frame are you looking at?

I'll see what I can do for you..

At the very least, I do have the side-post battery lugs and the lug ring terminals for the starter/block side of things.

When I order cable, I have to order a minimum quantity, usually 250 foot of each cable type, which adds up very quickly.

Hi,
Can you PM me some details? Payment and about how long it will take. I have the battery tub coming from Archie and I hate to re-invent the wheel if these kits are available.

Thanks,
Ed

Seeing as this is something quite a few ppl would be interested in getting done on their Fieros (myself included), why not get a list of potential customers and take deposits for the orders so you could then buy the necessary supplies?

I let life get in the way a while back after having accepted orders for harnesses/cables/etc...
I caught up on everything, but some people waited a LONG time...

Even though my life has improved considerably since those days, I won't be doing that again any time soon...

I'll be shipping some stuff soon, and once I have payment for those items, I will consider placing a follow-up order to do the cables...

I don't expect it to be too long from now that I can do that.

I'd like to get on the list of potential buyers. Just let me know when you are gonna start making them again.
I still haven't gotten around to putting in the hella headlights. I primed the brackets and mounted the light in them and that's as far as I got.
Like you, life got in the way. Things are sorting out now to where I can start working on the car again.

I am bumping this to the top again in hopes these kits might be available again. Please let me know. If not any help with info on what is needed to make a kit would be appreciated. I am looking at doing this on both my 88's and my 86GT over the winter months,
