New Project

Recommended Posts

I'm back after a long absence. Long story short I picked up this car last weekend from a buddy. 1985 Pontiac Fiero 2m4. Needs lots of small things to make it nice again. Car came with a new headliner, engine mount, window switch for the passenger side, fender (current one has a chunk missing lol), GT rear bumper and GT sideskirt. Already replaced the motor mount, air filter, fixed the cargo dome light, changed the oil and oil filter. Car is going into the shop friday to have the serpentine belt replaced. Hopefully on Saturday I can have the driver side window working (I think its slightly off track) and get the passenger side window working also. I have the switch, just need to take replace it.

Here are some pictures:

This is why the passenger side switch didn't work, the internals were missing from the switch...

That Fiero needs a drop, the 17"s don't look right like that. :lol:

What wheels are those anyway?

Yeah okay - I'm in for the road trip.

I think this ties in very well with our discussion about psychology at the swap meet today too. I think that discussion was karma for this thread don't you think?

The wheels are Nexo PX-5. They are 17's. I would love to drop the Fiero but for now, I need to spend money on more important things. $1200 for a kit is a bit pricey for me right now.

Also, the other images I forgot to load:

We decided to try out the interesting system that the Fiero uses. What I mean by this is that if it is equipped with the Sunroof, you can take the glass out and store it under the hood. Which we tested and thought it was awesome. We also took the seat covers off to inspect how bad the seats are. They are actually in pretty darn good shape. Minus the one tear on the drivers side.

Sunroof in its little holder

Inspecting the wind deflector and weather stripping on the sunroof (it leaks a bit)

What's the issue? Toss in a K24A4, double the power of the Iron Duke in there, plus those K-series engines can take a beating and are super reliable. Mate that up with the six speed manual from either an Acura RSX Type S or TSX, you'll have a drivetrain that you can flog on ALL day with no worries. Unless you installed something wrong. :P

Nexo? Never heard of them...they look like something else I've seen though. But $1200 to drop it? Getting coilovers?

Like I said, sounds like a set of coilovers, in which that price doesn't sound insane.
