    Is that red? It looks almost like a Maroon type red. I love the Fiero you pictured. That Fiero looks nice. The early models look ugly, you got the nice one.

    Well Robbert (My brother in law) and I just got the car here this afternoon. It was a pain getting it under my car port with the tow truck! We couldn't raise the flat bed as high as we wanted or it was going to hit the roof. He also couldn't back in to far because of the light bar on the tow truck would also have hit the roof. Both the tires on the right are flat, so pushing it would have been impossible. Luckily Robbert had a trick up his sleeve. He got the car off the flatbed, then used the lower bar on the truck to lift the front and hydraulically push it back into place

    Now the actual work begins.....

    I haven't even had a chance to take pictures yet There is not much to look at, even I am thinking I am crazy at this point, as it is in BAD shape hahah! I feel like a true redneck with this thing parked in the driveway! LOL

    I am thinking on getting some white primer spray cans, just to cover up the gray for now, and make it at least one color, so it doesn't look quite so bad to the neighbors! haha!

    I will get some pics today, and put a couple in here.

    Ok, I have a mechanic coming over Monday afternoon to check it out. It is having a fuel problem. It will run when I spray starter fluid into the intake, but not on its own. Could be a plugged line, fuel filter, fuel pump relay or the fuel pump itself.

    In the mean time, I have started to tinker with the interior. I am changing the interior to Red and Black, and getting rid of the dreadful gray

    Here is what the door looked like a couple days ago (Notice the settering wheel cover from my old Eclipse. That was the motivation for the color change



    Here it is done in red and black leather:




    The back firewall cover had this nasty fuzzy carpet all over it.





    I decided to cover that in leather as well:




    Here you can see the seat is pretty well shot ) The passenger seat was actually worse!) :




    So I decided to cover them in Red & Black leather as well:




    Now I need to order the new charcoal carpeting when I get a little more cash. I have decided not to dump all my money into this project at once, but to take it a little bit at a time.

    It's a major start at least.... with a LONG ways to go.

    The nice part about having the seat and the steering wheel done is that now you can sit in the car, put your hands on the wheel, and have the real physical sense of it for your driving fantasies.

    The seat looks terrific. Did you do the upholstery work yourself?

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    i dunno -- but i want to know how that beeeeuuuutifull female is floating there without any legs ROFL !!!!


    fiero's definately have a LOT of potential to "become" other cars with a few body kit parts here n there.... it really is a pain they conjested the engine compartment so badly ~_~ hope you dont plan on doing any major engine/transmission work in the driveway

    im interrested in what the final dash is going to look like... i know ive pondered many times about getting a fiero and doing some custom work to it... then i found a delorian... and then.... and then... hehehe

    GL on your build!!! MORE PICTURES MORE PICTURES!!! ^_^

    yeah--- if you did all that leather work yourself... why not be the first person with a leather clad fiero?? j/k -- the leather treatments would suck horribly, maybe weather proof pleather heheh

    Floating... I think you need to get to an eye doctor . Her feet are clearly visible standing in heels.

    No, I can not take credit for the seat covers They were ordered from a well known person that does Fiero interior stuff "Mr. Mike"

    I did do the door upper and lowers, and the leather firewall cover myself though!
