I got a bunch of hard ware that wasn't that easy to find. The altinator has been rebuilt, and the guy gave me a great deal on it.

I was able to get a lot done today despite how cold it is. The thermometer says it's only 30 degrees today with sleet and snow. I got the front suspension put together, except I didnt get a chance to press the ball joints in. I got the transmission connected to the engine and both are now on the cradle. Just a few more things till the engine is back in it's rightful place. Sorry for the blurry pics. I was starting to shiver a little
Freezing rain sticking to the windows.

The poly on the front was a PITA to get it to line up properly.
Passenger side

driver side

starting to look really good




When I wa trying to get the engine on the cradle (without the use of a lift) I managed to dimple the exhaust flange. I hope after bending it back it wont affect the exhaust noise

All kidding aside, you have come a LONG way with the car, in a short period of time, considering the considerable damage the fire did. And you are not just repairing the fire damage, you are repairing and restoring everything it seems! Looking good!

Oh, and when you and Bryan get sick of the frosted glass look, just pick a date and let me know when you decide to fly down for a visit. Anytime from now through March is good by me.

Im sorry that I didn't see your question till now. They are from the 13in Turbo fin rims. The center part were the bearing cap, or CV axle threaded part is just a hair too small. The Turbo fins have lip on the inside that they snugly snap into. These steelies dont have enough clearance to fit. I could get them to fit with some alterations, but I don't want to ruin a good set. These are not so easy to find.

That's good to hear!!! Nothing feels better when you can just get the car to pop right off with a partial turn of the key. I have a little bit left to go before the car will even run lol. I just hope the computer is ok from the fire. (crossing fingers) I hope to bring it up to frazee I hope painted all the same color. Im starting to miss the four cylinder sound.
I can talk with Bryan and see when he would like to come down to FL. I know he and I could use a vacation lol.

I picked up four 88 grand am rotors and two sets of calipers for the same car. I also picked up two wheel hub assemblies. All I have left to buy is the shocks and struts. So close.....

I placed an order for the stainless steel braided lines and the poly cradle mounts. While that's on it's way I decided to paint the calipers a nice bold blue. Not sure if they will show through the holes on the steelies, but still.... My alternator has been rebuilt and it looks great!!!! The guy did an amazing job. He had to replace the bearings and the commutator. He said that is swelled and that caused the case to have a hair line crack. It's not anything to really worry about. It's really solid. Now for the pics.



I also got an early Christmas present from a very good friend. I thought I would NEVER find one of these.

Im not sure if that's a good idea. I know there is some controversy over switching to the S-10 booster vs staying stock. Is there any benefits or drawbacks? I read that the tires lock up easier. Is there a good thread on here to explain the changes between stock boosters vs S-10 boosters? I never did get a straight answer from that thread.

I haven't been able to really get anything done on the car itself, but I have a lot of smaller things done. When the weather is gracious and gives us weather that isn't in the teens or lower I'll start working on her again. I just hope the engine is ok.

I haven't been able to do anything with the rebuild. It has been WAY too cold to work outside. It also seems that when ever I get a day off the weather takes a turn for the worse. I hope soon it will change. I have been tracking down some tan parts so I hope to pick those up soon.

I got my front hubs back from being machined. The guy left a ring on the back of the hub from the existing metal. He didn't want to compromise the integrity of the hub itself. I think it looks good . I ground down the mounting point for the front caliper brackets to eliminate the interference from the new grand am rotor. As soon as I can I'll post pictures.
On a side note I have a dash being sent to me from Maine and hopefully soon I'll have the rest I need. Finally some warmish weather.

Thanks again John for posting the pics. I got my dash yesterday and it is mint. Its from an 86 GT and it's perfect. I was able to contact a guy in fon du lac WI who has an interior out of an 86 gold bumper pad. Sad to see such a farely rare car being parted out. The car is located only 6 hours from me and it has everything I need. The only thing that bothers me a little is the b pillars having the speakers and having the speakers in the seats . Oh well... more sound. As soon as I can get my computer up and running I'll post pics.

I was able to buy it from Mark in Maine for a very very reasonable price. He's a great guy to talk to about parts.
I hope to finally put the front and rear suspension parts back on the car. I had to buy an impact tool and a spring compressor tool for the struts, and the next things Im going to buy will be the Monroe sensi-trac struts and shocks. I'm questioning weather or not to lower the car with these shocks. What do you guys think?

I got one of the struts from Monroe. Now just to get the other sides done lol. I decided to stay with stock height springs. I don't want it mess anything up. I also painted the springs blue to match the calipers. They just need one more coat. I am slowly getting near the finish line.

I recieved a set of 4 14 in Fiero hubcaps, but they need to be painted to clean them up. I plan on using the 14 in rims instead of the 13 in rims to save on the tires. I also picked up the front shocks so now all I have to do is put it together. I hope to get her on tires soon. I hope to post a lot more pictures also.

/\ lol yeah sadly. I have a bad habit of forgetting that my running (aka attitude) lights are on. No guarantee that it works. I'm not entirely sure of this but I might be getting some pristine caps for my steelies from the guy that sold me the interior. I hope he was able to ship then along with some tan screw caps.

Yesterday was productive day. It was nice and warm with tons of sun, and with that my first sun burn of the year. I fought all day with the front suspension and I was able to have all put together. The worst of it was fighting with the front springs. What a pain they are. I just need a few things like coder pins to finish it totally. Today however was very cold because if the blustery winds. It was even snowing pretty hard for a minute or two. So all I could do today was just clean up the wiring harness. I am having trouble posting pics so Johnwbp will post them for me.

This weekend has been a total washout from all the rain. So to keep myself busy I restored a set of hubcaps from an 86 coupe. The red lettering was tedious. These hubcaps will be going on the 88 for shows only.

This up coming Wednesday she will be getting a windshield from, the only local glass dealer that had it, PPG. The amazing thing it only cost $268.00 with installation, parts, and labor included. I thought it wasn't that bad of a deal. What do you guys think? As soon as the windshield is glued on the interior will be put in.
I will finally be able to put the engine back in the car. I won't be able to get her to run just yet. I don't trust the ECM because of the fire damage and potential heat damage. So I'm on the look out for that.
On a another Fiero related thing. I found a wing for the 88. The po took it off and left holes where the wing should be. The only problem is its white... there is also a small crack, but that will be easy to fix.

I have a local place doing mine for $200. I may have an ECM but not sure how to tell if it's the one you need. I think all of mine are out of V6's.

This is the service code for the 84 4 cylinder I believe. #01226156 This is what rock auto and other auto places on line say what the code is.
