  • Merry Christmas, everyone! In the spirit of the season, all merch of mine is going to be 15% off until New Years Day. The coupon code is "SMUDGE" because of the freaking smudge on the lens that is prevalent throughout this video that I didn't notice until editing started. Unfortunately, my Patreon is still full price at $1, but my Instagram (@fingerprintsworkshop) is free to follow.

    • Simply love this series on this Fiero, and hoping you don’t lose interest before it’s completed. I understand that utter and complete frustration when putting things together on a long project like this. Please hang in there take a break when you need to and get back on it. Thank you so much such great entertainment.

  • The car looks great. I would try to move away from using super glue. You can remove the repair plug from the head liner and redo it with a glue that doesn't harden. It is a beautiful car. My friend had a red Fiero and it was an interesting little car.

  • A little bit of automotive grease (or even Vaseline) over the bulb connectors keeps them water resistant and easier to take out in my experience.

  • Anyone know why a generation put linoleum over hardwood? Wood floors used to be common and said “cheap”. Linoleum was new and different. Everyone had wood floors, NOT everyone had something else. Today it sounds ridiculous, not so 50 years ago. You’re welcome 👍

Can't wait to see the car finished up and excited to see what the next project will be. I am in the middle of fixing up an 85 Corvette. I might have to pick up a Fiero for a daily now after watching this.

  • I did a frame up resto on my 1974 Celica, a resto-mod really. But I can attest to the pure joy I felt when the doors were completely finished (reassembled). What a wonderful day! I fully understand your joy, Ronald! I still have issues keeping my repop door mirror in place, though. I had glass cut, and am still struggling with holding it in place. Struggle!!! But... we love it.

  • Pontiac used to be considered the "experimental" part of GM, hence the Pontiac style: rear drum brakes that are a real pain in the assets to reassemble when it is time for a reline or rebuild, removable outer door skins, oddly shaped and rubberised inner door actuator rods, Kelsey Hayes geared ABS brakes that would gum up, batter cables hidden behind many layers of unremovable components, water pumps driven by timing belts, timing belt tensioners, etc. Pontiacs are usually fun to drive but often tough to work on.

  • Great way to clean corroded terminals - dip in muriatic acid, soak for a few seconds, and then thoroughly rinse. Use silicone grease on the terminals to help prevent future corrosion.

  • if you are gonna replace the windshield in a Fiero it is best to have the headliner and roof panel off so you do not damage them and the glass will damage them if they are installed when removing the windshield you should install the roof panel just before installing the windshield.
