    My Fiero GTP: Collins & Aikman Edition

    Hello Guys,

    Sometime ago, I got this Fiero on eBay for $72 shipped to me... The body was in bad shape, but everything else was almost brand new, no scratches on the bumper and only two single tiny scratches in the middle of the chassis...




    After diassembling it completely, I cleaned every single part, replaced all the screws with new ones, polished the motor, added the servos and the receiver, added bearings to the rear pod and put it back together... And, this is how it looks today...








    Hope you like it...

    Daniel

    Yup, but as this is a shelf queen, it really doesn't matter that much..

    And, a short video of it...



    I finished two vintage projects in 1 week! Wow! Hahaha....

    It's definitely nice seeing people put some time and hard work into restoring these oldies! As old as they are, they will always be some of the coolest vehicles ever! One of the most fun aspects of vintage R/Cs for me is that so few people have these things/use them on a regular basis these days.

    Another nice rebuild--great work!

    Thanks! I have a "The Cat" on the way here, so, I'll post a new thread about it soon...

    One thing I forgot to mention is that I shortened the servo wires, it looks better that way...

    That's a pretty cool vintage you got there. However what would go well with your Traxxas Fiero is this car:

    If your're interested, let me know as I now have it in my collection.

    Thanks! But, actually, I'm not a Fiero fan, I'm just a Traxxas addict...

    The Fiero has new wheels!!!



    They look the same, but they are not, the two rims (rear and front) are more like gray, the other two are more like silver...

    The gray ones are for this Fiero, the silver ones for the other one I'm building now...
