i finally have another shot at building a fiero. the story is i had one a while back when i first found out about them, then it ended up getting stolen recently afterwards, since then ive had a few different cars but ive always kept lurking here for new ideas to put on the list of possibilities once i had another one.

i had a lifted chevy that i drove for about 2 months after i fixed it up than decided cost on cars are going down and everyone and the brother would be looking for a good truck before snow flies so i had it posted for trade on a few sites including here then i found someone off of craigslist that was willing on a flat trade.

now i have a 86GT fast back, V6, 3 speed auto and a sunroof. i got 3 out of 4 things i wanted and i cant complain on that one

once i got alittle better look at it i found out that it was repainted the yellow (was originally red) and that it had a shaved antenna, very good directional tires on some AR wheels
and a viper alarm with the key fob. not really stuff to get exited about but i enjoy the small things for the most part and really im just happy to finally have another fiero, plus the alarm was a nice touch easily my favorite car of all with how many possibilities there are for customization.

i have a whole list of things i want to do, but im going to be enjoying it thuroughly as is untill next winter while i sort out the realistic possibilities from the dreams but one thing that is a garrenty is a N/A 3800 series 2 im getting from a good friend in may

Good to see another Fiero guy on the North end of town. Lemee know if you ever need any help, I'm just a few miles south of you. If you ever want to theft proof your car, check out this push button start system: http://www.advancedkeys.com/Prod_AK104B.html Put one in my car last year and its been trouble free. It completely eliminates a need for a key.

You forgot #3!

3) You now know about Fieros, and will attend the 5th Anual Tyler Shipman Memorial Car Show in Frazee the last Saturday in July. Seriously, it would be a great way for you to meet a lot of other Fiero owners, and support a good cause. It's a cheap trip, as most of use pop up a tent in the backyard! I hope to see you there.

Now back to your original topic

Nice Fiero, I have an 86 GT, Auto, with Sunroof as well. You are right there are a ton of thing you can do to them, and as you, the 3800 in on my list some day as well!

I was one of the guys out there helping out with it, It was a good time. Also it wouldent have mattered, I was experienced enough to help out but the hard stuff I just let everyone else do

JohnWPB was there to.

well i got alittle bit done today, after wasting 5 hours modding and trying to keep the stock subwoofer and bring it to its full potential i decided that no matter what it would only hold back the rest of the system.
so i thought for a little bit, started playing with some of my other subs using the factory amp, then i decided to use one of my boss diablo 10" subs, made a plate for it , upholsterd it, now im working how im going to mount it, right now its in my mock up center console
sorry for the low quality pictures i had to use the camera on my laptop

got some more pictures for you guys finally got some after polishing my rims, then some higher quality pictures of my sub plate in the mock up center console.
i have the whole center strip taken out for running the wires for the sub and cleaning up a bit, than i finally have the plate glued into my center console, i sealed up all the holes and have the glue curing overnight.
then i took off some body panels ( i only have a picture of the fender sorry) but she is very very clean
then i drew up a concept for the rear end, its a mix with F40 bumper, 2014 stingray tail lights and alittle maserati influence on the pegasus placment, also it has about a 2" chop and a wide body, i know its not up to scale but it was just to work out exactly what i was thinking on it... enjoy

alright some small updates and pictures. i never clarified but i was planning on using the factory amp untill my sub blew it up, so thats why i have been working on a after market amp, also sorry for calling the sub a diablo, it was marketed as the same sub as the phantom from boss audio.

now for the updates i have been getting very few hours in between to work on the car but now i have the amp fully installed all the wires completely wrapped (the power and audio wires are wrapped as well inside the final wrap)

ive been working on painting my mirrors, every time i would walk into the garage i would automaticly look at my mirror first thing and it bugged me how chipped up it was. i painted them satin black to match the wing and got the passenger side installed

then the last thing right now is im trying to figure out how to by-pass the shift safeties because im wanting to cut down the shaft 1 1/2" and use a after market shift knob so that unless you really look you wont notice its automatic right away.

alittle off subject for a second but on the other side of the garage my dads project is starting to come together it looks like a bike again

im just doing regular maint. and some personalization for now because im saving up for a tool chest and a amida dash before he stops selling them

I decided against the diamond plate since the print was so big it would have looked off so instead I re purposed some chrome rocker trim I have laying around, anyways I sanded the scoop cleaned it up, got that painted and cut out the chrome.

I'm thinking I'm going to try it again as this piece got some scuffing from grinding the edges.

Now that's done I'm working on cleaning up my engine bay alittle bit of things that don't need to be there

I had to make a trip to the junkyard yesterday because I had a caliper on my cavalier blow the seal.

It's like my candy store there so I'll go around the whole yard to see what they have even if its not what I'm looking for (you never know what you'll find) and I wound up finding they have a 1994 camaro in the yard right now with a complete dash.

so I'm keeping my fingers crossed its still there next weekand so I can grab the dash as a back up for 100 for everything I need just incase I cant save enough in time for the amida dash

Does anyone know what happened to all of the other build threads with the camaro dashes and wiring diagrams? This is the only one I can find now.

Also has anyone found a successful way of using the camaros HVAC setup?

Just an update. I got the old dash a center console out yesterday along with my passenger seat.

Today I've been trimming the dash to start getting things to fit as well as took off parts of the steering column mounts. Next chance I getin the garage iI'll going to be removing the rest of the trim in the car.
I'll get pictures as soon as I can but my laptop crashed

I figured out how to upload photos with my phone now. So updates with pictures now I made the point of no return cuts on my steering column Mount. I decided to go the same route as bowrapennocks and keep the rear most bolts.

Then while I was cutting the mounts I forgot to tuck the wires and nicked then bundle for the gauge cluster....oops so gotta fix that now

Then today at lunch I went over to fleet farm and picked up some sheet metal so that I can make all the mounts and brackets I need

For the people who have done the F body dash swaps, what did you do to trim your passenger A pillar trim and fix the gap on the driver side after centering the dash? Any help and ideas would be appreciated please and thankyou

Finally got some news worthy updates I got some more trimming on the dash done and I was able to get it to scoot over another 1/8" and got it fitted to where I want it.

Its still not perfectly centred on my steering column and I can't get it to scoot over anymore so I'm going to trim my steering column brackets so I can get it over the last bit.

I'm not planning any duct work besides the defrost vent and the foot vents. After I got the dash where I wanted I assembled most of it to really get a feel for how its going to look. And I think I'm going to have to trim the passenger side a pillar a little bit. But as you can see from the pictures i have plenty of space between the shifter and the radio bezal and also the gauge bezal comes up lower to the windshield than the stock cluster did. I'd say some good progress for today

My full game plan is to have to dash fully bolted in by Sunday. I'll grab some pictures tomorrow of everything I trimmed on the dash the on my steering column mount once I'm done with that

I have the passenger side mounts done and I'll be finishing the driver side tomorrow. I'm trying to use as many existing mounting holes on the fire wall as possible. I'll grab pictures once I have all of the mounts done
