Fiero Drive With Me | 1985 Fiero 2M4 Revival - Part 3

In this episode, the complete braking system is rebuilt so we can get this baby on the road. And then once the baby is on the road, CPS comes and takes it away because of "child endangerment". So now that the baby is out of the picture, we have time to rebuild the Fiero's brakes and get this car on the road.
I wanted to title this Twin Seats, but I don't think that would've been enough since it wouldn't really describe what the episode was about. But at least I could still say it here.

  • Regarding the part of the video where I am talking to the camera about the clutch, I would like to apologize for that. I didn't realize how windy it was until I started editing. Sorry about all the noise!

    • Ronald Finger Pull over son, you’re driving a Red 1985 Fiero, without a license plate, an expired brake tag, can I see your license, registration and insurance?

    • No, dude, thank you for even putting these together. I'm living vicariously through you as I sell the LeBaron I wanted to bring back to former glory. Thank you, man, and I can't tell you how excited for you I was when it cranked up the first time. That fiero is going to be amazing, man.

  • Man.... Why not try and get most of the rust off?? You go through so much effort to take the car apart and _'restore it'_ but the rust will not stop eating away at it just because you gave the exterior a new paint job. I just got here so maybe you did clean up the rust - I dont know but seeing you put down anti-seize at 5:34 probably meant that you didnt go back to it and that triggers me to no end. It just seems very half arsed restoring something if you dont do any remedial work or preventative maintenance to help your project live a little bit longer. Why admire your hard work for 20 years when you can admire it for another 50? Even if you do sell the car on to someone else - that person can appreciate and admire the effort you put in. I'll keep watching anyway.

    Sam OlsenSam Olsen11 сарын өмнө
    • Ahh okay! There should just be little tabs you squeeze in. You have to squeeze and pull at the same time, then it should just fall through. You may have to use pliers to squeeze them or maybe I screwdriver to press them. I honestly don’t remember exactly since this video was filmed two years ago haha

  • The reason why that Phenolic caliper was so difficult to remove even with heat is because that material actually absorbs brake fluid over time. After long enough, they become impregnated and swell up, thereby seizing to the cylinder wall of the caliper. hence why the heat didn't work as it would have with a metal piston. As far as ive seen, only American vehicles use them, although researching it seems to say that they're used worldwide. Still have yet to see any japanese or european ones use them in all the hundreds of cars I've worked on.

  • I really enjoy these videos and I appreciate the work you're doing. I also have learned all the same things by myself and I can say it's very satisfying to get something working that has been neglected for so long. And I also can appreciate that you are using what you have at home without any specialty tools. Keep up the good work. That being said I just have to say watching you using a claw hammer for automotive work is literally making me cringe. Please invest in a mini sledge. Also don't use chrome sockets on an impact wrench. Friendly advice. 👍
