I have finished the door repair on the Fiero, and I have the outer door skin back on. Feels good to accomplish that, because it seemed like it was taking forever to get that little side job done. Next step, touch up any areas on the rear chassis, and install the rear fastback clip :)
I’m trying to figure out how to remove this part that holds the notchback clip to the Fiero chassis. It looks like it is screwed in.
I bought this stuff called Plastic Metal, made by Bondo. Basically it is liquid metal and epoxy mixed together – it seems to be far stronger than regular body filler. It works great, dries fast, and it is easy to work with. I used it to smooth out any imperfections from welding in the new […]
I bought these from Princess Auto today. They are really easy to setup. I have been looking around for a set for a long time – most places charge far to much. Princess Auto had them on sale for $59.99 per set – really good price. Moving the Fiero around is a breeze, and it […]
These just came in the mail today. They were lost somewhere in the U.S. by the postal service, and then they ended up finding the box a month later – WTF? It took over a month to get them, but it was worth the wait – do they ever look good. Thick metal, looks like […]
First, I made a cardboard mock-up to get the generic shape. I then transferred the shape to 18 gauge sheet metal, cut it out, and then I welded it into place. I need to do a little more grinding and then it will be ready. I think I may use some fiberglass and/or bondo to […]
I took the outer door panel off to do a proper restoration of that rust hole I discovered. I should have lots of space to grind out any rust, and paint.
On the lower driver’s side door there was a small rusted out hole. Very weird place to get this, because the rest of the door is in terrific shape. The only thing I can think of that would cause this is accidentally grazing the door with your hand when you apply the parking brake – […]
These just came in. They are TERRIFIC quality – far beyond what I expected. The gel coat is the best I have ever seen on aftermarket fiberglass. I did not realize how BIG the 4″ LED lights were – these things are MASSIVE! I can’t wait to install these after I put the rear fastback […]
