Hello Everyone!

I just bought my first Fiero and wanted to introduce myself to the forum. Hopefully i will be using this thread to document the work i do/have done to restore my car.
I am 19 years old and my 1987 Fiero GT is the second car i have ever owned. The first car was a 1987 Pontiac Trans am GTA, which i enjoyed 2 summers ago, but ended with a tragic engine problem, which has caused it to be stored ever since. I have always wanted a 2 seated mid engine car and once i discovered the Fiero, i knew it had to be my next car! I am from London, Ontario, Canada and so far have only seen one other Fiero around my area. It had some really interesting work done to it so I searched up the licence plate and found out it was forum member "Arns85GT". I bought my Fiero at the start of last summer for just over $1000 and it was in barely drive-able condition but i did drive it home from Windsor (200Km). The car was rusted everywhere. It even had big holes caused by rust in the rear wheel well going into the trunk area.

I'm glad to finally become a member of this forum, and hope to meet lots of knowledgeable people!

The car when i bought it:












I have restored a lot of this car since then, will post current pictures soon.

Welcome, Wow, what a first post. Tearing right into that puppy. Looks like you made great progress so far..

Interesting garage, looks like you have a good amount of room to work in. Hard to heat ? Any outside shots ?

Thanks CoolBlue87GT! I don't have any pictures of my garage but its a large dome shaped outdoor garage. It can fit around 8 cars side by side. Its a heated garage so its not hard to heat, when the heating system is hooked up to propane ( i haven't refilled it in a long time tho).

Thank you so much for offering to help. I will contact through email you shortly.
