Tech day

Hey all,

I still have my focus but I have stopped modding it for the time being. The reason for that would be this:



1987 Fiero GT 2.8


Anyways! I have all new SS vacuum lines to install and some LED switchback running lights as well. If anyone wants to swing by Sunday who has a heat gun and a drill, I would love it. I'm going to be buying lots of parts and need a lot of help in the next few weeks for look for more posts like this haha if anyone wants to swing by and just shoot the that's wanted as well.

I will definitely install the lines this weekend because that doesn't need more than a socket wrench but the switchbacks need some more detailed work lol


If anyone has a line to an exhaust shop that could sell me a hi-flow magnaflow cat for cheaper than elsewhere, let me know :). Basically I'll be revamping a lot of this car....lol but it was $800 :)))


Thanks all

Apple Valley haha I'm from out in Fontana so apple valley and the desert are a second home to me. Trailered to Azusa from there because I need to replace the shift solenoid.

Because it was rwd, no check engine lights, only 75k miles for $800, that's why. And it's way cheaper to work on/doesn't have the warranty my Focus does. I can swap an ls4 v8 in for about as much as it would take to turbo the Focus. And it's something different :)

I'll be installing vacuum lines this Sunday at 901 E. Alosta in Azusa. That's my school address and I live in the apartment complex across the street. If you have a heat gun to heat some shrink wrap and a decent knowledge of wiring we can do the LEDs too. And you can help me inventory the other issues I have haha


EDIT: I also have work at 4 and plan to get out there at around 11 or so, so if you aren't local, probably not worth more than a 20 min drive. Just wanted to put that out there

BAHAHAHA!! You're the best, Demented!!

but seriously, it's a little late notice for this sunday; Me, I'm almost 2 hours from you so I'ma have to say no on that tech day. Post it up with more time and maybe try to work on a Focus if your proposing a tech day in a focus forum , just my thoughts on that part of it.

Good luck though!
