  • Mate, I love your work. I also love the fact that you've started swearing. It's about time too. It wasn't natural hearing 'gosh' and 'darn' when the correct response is a full blown expletive. Now all you need is a decent steel workbench rather than a rickety wooden thing (I'm just jealous of all the free tools and toys you are getting...) Keep up the good work, cobber. This old Aussie is thoroughly enjoying it!

    • Oh yeah... approve of the self etching, but the enamel doesn’t last. Use VHT frame and chassis paint. It’s an epoxy and far far tougher. A) check the user name. B) been doing this kind of stuff for ~45 years.

  • I am hooked, a brilliant effort all round, I'm over the pond in the UK and getting a massive buzz over watching this car come back to life. Kudos to you Ron, I'm really enjoying each episode and your diligence. I have a 50 year old classic car and I have to rely on a very understanding garage to keep it running. Maybe one day, I'll start to have a go myself. Keep going and I cannot wait to see the full transformation.

  • Be very careful with those springs. Any hairline cracking caused by rusting can penetrate into them and weaken them, causing them to snap or shatter suddenly. I wouldn't ever go to the trouble of sanding or painting them, as there's a good chance of the paint cracking due to the spring compression, and the cracks trapping more moisture in there. Also it's good to have new springs to go with the new shocks. They can get a little baggy with time. I've had a spring snap while I was doing 50mph down a tree lined road. It dug into the tyre and was less than a milimeter away from going through the cords and blowing out. Good work though. Some of those parts looked beyond help before, but look new now.

  • Son, how much money have you spent on this car thus far, other than the $100 initial cost. At some point you should really consider what is called -- point of demising returns. If this were a classic Firebird or Camaro, a Charger or a Challenger, a Corvette or some other type of muscle car, I can understand the amount of time and money you're putting into this build, but a Fiero...?!?!? Really??? Fieros were crap cars when they were brand new... what the heck do you want to do pouring so much money into a car that will never be worth what you put into it? I can understand the trill of rebuilding "barn find" type of car... but they abandoned this car, because it wasn't worth fixing. Don't waste your hard earned money on a car that is at best equivalent to a Gremlin.

  • They say Millennials aren't into cars much....even more so ones that can drive a manual transmission. I have to say I was never a real fan of the Iron Duke, but then again the one in my father's '88 Grand Am had 215K miles on the clock when he traded it in. I love how you are showing so much love to a car that was semi-unloved in its day. Though I would have uprated the suspension personally, I like how you are basically keeping it stock and not trying to make it much more than it always was. You are a good storyteller keep it up!
