  • back from vaca and on to the REDO

    Go figure had a little issue with the fiero wiring for the door locks. Not good to have the 12v supply exposed

    Made a mount for the MES Swiss made door lock actuator.

    Mounted the Chinese door lock control module

              • Test wired the Cadillac Catera power mirror switch to the existing Fiero GT power mirror wiring, then the Murcielago side view mirror.

                Soldered up the catera switch to the fiero wiring, nice and neat

                • While waiting on a cable to do my inner door latch release, Fiber glassed the outer door skin in a few needed areas

                  The gaps were just to large for just dyna glass

                  The bottom of the door was also to short.

                  Also created a little flange on the door skin just above the handle.

                  Nice thing about fiberglass I can lay it up and go do some yard work, come back and do the next bit

                            • Well it looks like I haven't done anything on the car , but a lot of fiddling around with the outer door skin, fiber glassing sand etc to get the side view mirror to mount. I have had this door skin on the car, off the car so many times

                              had to add a flange on the upper part of the door, REDO the mirror mounting area, finalized my outer window scraper brackets (3m8115 then FGP). Added some wood blocks and bolts to mount the skin to get a better idea of how it all coming together

                              • spent most the day working on the floor in a horizontal position

                                Did some body work on the rocker and qtr panel as i cut out the G28 rocker /scoop and replaced with OEM replica

                                used dyna glass to fix the gap left where I cut out the G28 rocker, Between the qtr panel and OEM replica scoop
