    Re: 1988 Pontiac Fiero Rally Stripes Removal and Prep for Sale

    Awesome write up and pictures and work!

    Yeah it's important to have have a little arsenal of glue removers. It's much of what kind of glue it is and what kind of solvent it is that desolves it most effectively. So the next glue remove you do one of the other products that you tested could be the most effective to that glue to desolve. Haveing some different solvents is great and try your way through which works the most effective to desolve the glue you want to remove. Tarminator seems like a great product to have in your arsenal of solvents.

    The Fiero looks awesome!

    The interior is equally as nice. No rips, tears, cracks and everything works as designed. AC was converted years ago and he just had it flushed and replaced the orifice tube and another main part a week ago so it's frosty cold !!
    78,000 miles on the clock!
    The 6 cyl engine with dual exhaust sounds so mean and deep when it starts up. If it had a manual trans and t tops, it would be worth around $25-30,000 given its condition.
    Surprisingly, there are a lot of Fieros for sale on classic car sites with super low miles, like less than 10,000!
    Luckily this one's limited production numbers and condition will bring a pretty decent payday for its owner.

    Thanks for all the compliments. It was a labor of love. Since it's going to be in my shop until it sells, I'll probably spend some more time removing the deeper defects when time permits.

    Great write-up. Unfortunately 1988 is when they made the Fiero much better - then they pulled the plug My oldest brother has owned 3 Fireos in his lifetime. The first, a brand-new 1984 2M4, quickly had serious issues with acid rain spots. GM agreed to have it wet sanded and polished for him, but a few weeks later the spots came back...
