        Hopefully the rust hasn't penetrated though the frame if it's just on the exterior then sanding priming and painting is all you would have to do. Time comsuming but not to hard.
        Looks like you need a new boot for you CV axle.

            Actually the engine started right up (after I replaced the battery cables which had corroded away)... It did (And still does) Idle at 2800rpm though (havent had time to check the vacum tubes yet)

              You are not the only person to purchase a 15 year old
              Fiero and find rust .. a guy down south has the same
              experience .. Honestly did you expect him to replace
              all the parts and provide you with a new Fiero? I think
              not .. its not pretty but you have to expect some
              crap in a 15 year old car .. its part of the Kit Car build
              to replace rubber, brake lines, brakes, calipers, etc.

              Been there done that...

                I think the point is that the car was "represented" to have been in good working condition. Things like this rust pool were "implied" to be NOT present.

                There IS a difference between a $5000 Fiero and a $400 fiero. Apparently, the RUST is the difference!

                Of course, Ari, if you plan on doing a Held a-arm swap to get the proper track width, much of that will go away in the replacement. New poly should go on anyway...

                Not that it makes it OK, it's just a way back to safety
