Don’t get me wrong even though this is his first car restoration he had plenty of skills already in many areas, as you can see in the rest of the videos on his Fingerprints Workshop Channel.

A Labor Of Love: The Story Of The Revival Of A 1985 Pontiac Fiero is one of a numberof articles about Ronnie and the Fiero by Bryan McTaggart at BangShift in which you can follow the build along.
