Will you be taking the Fiero to the Police Academy or using another car?
Tell me why I'm getting emotional over someone else's car ::( So happy/sad for your that it's just about done!!
Loved every episode, great work, thoroughly entertaining. Looking forward to your next resto series (🤞🤞🤞). 👍😃
Thank you for this series, I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed it, it has brought back so many memories of the Fiero I had back in the day.
I’m loving this series so far!
Liked your Blue's Clues song in the beginning
We want to see Part 15 - the drive, the cruse ..... the sound, some acceleration...... thanks !!!
It's interesting to see how old you've grown since you began this video
You REALLY should replace the rear springs as well. That odd mix of rates front and rear could cause instability if you have to avoid something, like a child....
I really enjoyed watching this series! Greetings from Russia 👍🏼
These videos were like Christmas as a kid. The anticipation builds for the day the next video drops, then it is over in the blink of an eye. If life fills your future and there are no more build projects then I wish you well. You can be proud of meeting every challenge the past three years. Thank you for one of the best channels on YT.
come on man, you can't just install front lowering springs - the rear is probably lower because the springs have sagged. you'll have stiffened the front and not the rear and it'll throw the balance of the car out of wack. put them all on.
FYI: the "little wheels" in the tape deck are called 'Pinch rollers" They can be cleaned of magnetic tape coating like the head and capstan with iso alcohol. In addition, hard and glazed ones can be rejuvenated lightly with # 400 - 600 paper. It can help speed issues. Back in the day there were wet cassettes for preventative maintenance and repair. So glad you got a belt.
Good work kid... proud of how far you've come. Pop the wheels once more though and clean the rust off those rotors. And, with brand new tires you can easily fine-tune your alignment once driving... keep a close eye on the tire titties (those injection thingies) and see how they wear. Quick on the outside: too much toe-in. A quarter turn is heaps... 1/16 at a time ftw until the wheel is centered at speed and it feels just right. Can't wait to see 'er finished.

Now that the car is done... sell it and buy yourself a "real" Pontiac....something like a trans am and rebuild that....😁 Jk...it was a good project and being your first...I'd say you have a knack for it. I hope you can find another holy grail car and make it shine. Maybe...a amc eagle the first 4x4 awd passenger car that took off
Good on you Ronald, it’s been a pleasure, an honour and inspiring to be able follow along.
I really hope there is still an episode where you do the body panels and replace the windshied. otherwise thats like right in the middle of the high tension car chase scene at the end of a movie, and the director comes on screen. "well the good guys got the bad guys, and the bad guys went to jail. see you at the sequel."
Looking good. Keep up the good work.
Super easy? Barely an inconvenience? Coils are tight! Yeah yeah yeah.
Been watching this series ever since it came out three years ago and I got to say this is some impressive hard work. Love the series.
Wow. You were a baby face back then. Not like now, with the stash and all. Time flies.
I felt that screwdriver slip bro! Is there a way to fill that hole up and maybe patch it?
Great job, Ronald. Thank you for sharing and taking us on the adventure with you.
I got the same exact tires. These cars look great with white walls.
I could watch this restoration for 100 plus episodes but I hope for your sake it doesn’t. 😆 The humor aspect is great.
In old things ALWAYS RESOLDER ALL PINS!!! and you will be happy)
It's not done till it's 100% together and we see it on the road man! Come on, follow up vid!
34:00 i feel so sorry for him. I know that pain. Things that make a man cry.
There are many reasons why i love the series. First of all. The he started as a kid is now a Boomer. But for real. He showed that with dedication and researching you can be a better mechanic than ectual mechanics. I wouldve replace alot of the parts he rebuild which i think is pretty inspiring because he really wanted to keep it stock and know how everything works. He probably will never do that again. But his dedication to make it as perfekt as he can is really impressiv. Edit; something really important down here Edit; i just notice something kinda important. Your seatbelts should be replaced with new ones. When you pull them out theyll still full of mold. But thats not the problem. I think they might get weakend by the mold and beeing that old and could snap in an accident.
Omg dude, that mustache is actually real? Lol. I thought you just put that on for the intro as a joke. No offense but it makes you look like a 45 year old father in a 50's movie. Haha.
Been watching this series for years now, weird to see it done. But you do a great job of conveying what it's like to work on stuff by showing you fails and frustrations. I think that's what made it so interesting. I'm ready to wait another 2 months for the final video now, haha. Keep up the great content!
You can fill the holes in the workbench with 5/8 oak dowel. I out a small slice along the diameter and drilled a hole for a screw for the underside. Put dowel into hole, tighten screw from underside and it's a perfect bench top
Love the comedy moustache!
I dont think you have a clue the definition of "inert"
So awsome !
what a great ride this has been, i look forward to the next video to see this thing all done. i cant believe its been 3 years! congrats man!
You have to get every little thing perfect when you're done, like the wheels need to be repainted and defiantly new lug nuts etc, it's not fair because these are easy jobs compared to all the work already done to the car
Nice build.... Had a 88' Formula back in the day..... It dropped the front end exactly the same way(same Kit) I Would highly recommend putting the match spring on rear Struts..... Mind you the 88' suspension was a revamp but i chewed up a pair of GaterZ's figuring it out the hard way..... She'll squat like a dog dragging her but...😎
“ a lot more than 2 millimeters...I checked...”
Just a recommendation, I would also replace the rear springs with the ones from Eibach. The mismatch of rates with stiff in the front and soft in the rear might make the car handle oddly depending on the actual rates.
i love these!
You ain’t done yet 🤣
Nah we wanna see then windshield and body panels intstalled
loll re un pucker your butthole lmaoooo..damnit man you crack me up
i started watching you when you dug this car out of the dirt.....god....you done good son....
glad you stuck with the mature thing to do and kept the original wheels...they help keep your brakes cooler....ok sure lol!! ill go with that
plastic stapleing....you son of a gun.....old fart just learned off a whippersnapper
that pump sounds like she'd wash the car behind it too...niceeeeeeeeeeeee... thank god you got rid os the CRUSTAYYY one
Such a great job!
1985 Fiero GT Owner, I got it in storage this year(thank God), it saw 2 months of snow this year and then got towed. Nice video.
twin turbo dodge stealth 3000gt 300zx rx7? im going with 300 zx but there are more 3000gt out there. were waiting. OUT WITH IT!!!. keep up great the work ocd man. you are opposite vicegrip garage my other fave youtube show. oh also what electric ratchet is that earthquake? if so how do you like it.
Loose hole and something large and stiff.................
That'll do Ronald, that'll do.
i would have replaced the back springs seeing that the old ones back there could be bad causing the back sag. just a tought.
so this is what the crowdfund money is going towards
