87 Fiero GT

So, I finally bought one. Got plates and registered it, and its chillin in front of my house now. I'm slowly finding out all the kinks in it, here goes:

Temp guage doesn't work, most likely a wiring issue.
AC needs a charge, I might just rip out the whole system though.
Power locks won't lock half the time.
Right headlight can get lazy and come up 3/4, but I adjusted it and it worked fine.
Driver's side door sags a tiny bit, I have a new hinge for it.
E-brake handle has an electronic gremlin of some sort, the chime and light won't go off with the brake disengaged.
The most worrisome- I just noticed that the left rear tire is VERY out of alignment. Looks pushed in and facing forward a bit, hmm I hope its something an alignment can fix- if not, I might be going with tubular suspension arms/ poly bushing sooner than I thought.

Other than that, the car is turn key, just needs a good wipe down in the interior and I'm all set. I'll be updating the wiring and hoses for safety purposes.

You guys only get one pic for now, gonna wait till I wash/wax her up properly to do a shoot on her- shes dirty.



My dad thought the engine was the same one as the one in the MR2, LOL!!

Yes sir!!! I'm just really concerned over that wheel issue, hopefully I can check it out properly when I take it to a friend's garage.

Yeah sorry, but the appearance is staying. MAYBE some smoother side scoops, a rear decklid vent, and a fiberglass extractor hood.

Other than that, tints and wheels.
