    G28 - Simple Mans, Simple REDO of an G28 LP640

    Over the years I have been reading and lurking here, and on other forums. Learned a lot form other members who have failed and some that have succeeded.

    Having traveled to look a number of unfinished cars across the country, visted Mike Vetter and Michael Chase, I finally purchased a G28.

    This car is based on an 87 Fiero and has a 3800 Series II SC for a power plant.

    So many thing to REDO on this car that it can make your head spin around. It will not be a "Simple" project but we will plug away on it.

    I will try to post my progress and appreciate any help from others who have gone before!

    Thanks
    Simple Man

    The 87 cradle in the car is pretty trashed. So an 88 cradle will be stretched and installed. The engine, which is leaking badly from the crank area, will we resealed.

    Wide track front and rear should be here in two weeks. The 87 cradle that was in the car was cracked and pretty messed up.

    Using FieroRog brackets to mount the alternator where the power steering pump was located...yes it was left on the motor when installed.

    FieroRog, from pennocks also makes a nice set of Left and right trans mounts and engine mount for the 88 cradle for the swap. Those are in bond and will be here on the 9th of February.

    Guess I better get the 88 cradle stretched

    Ha ! a day early !!Got the 3800 swap brackets for the trans and engine in the mail today from FeiroRog over at Pennocks. They dont look like much but they are key to the re-install on the engine from the 87 cradle to the 88.
