Bled master and slave cylinder on the Fiero'* clutch today. Looks like I need a new master. Now that'* it'* bled properly with no air in the line, the dot 3 is pushing past the seal on the master and seeping onto my floorboard. Can't even drive the car at the moment because the clutch won't fully disengage.

Replaced the clutch pedal and clutch master cylinder in the Fiero today. I can drive her again now that the clutch is actually disengaging.

In the city Cats got stolen a lot. When the one in my CSC went bad I cut it out myself and had a shop weld in a straight pipe. I knew they were going to steal it after they remove it from my car.

Got some new tires today, and got my car inspected, it is nice to have it legal once again.
The new tires got rid of the wobble I felt in the steering wheel, the guy said Walmart balanced them wrong, which I figured as there were multiple weights on each tire...
I'll never go to Walmart TLE for tires ever again!
Twas a good day.

That is good news William! So glad new shoes & balance did the trick !
What brand did u get ?
I currently am continuing with the prep work for winter on my Pk Ave.
On my list while it is dry & warm out is to get the PA in for a paint type undercoating.
I am hoping they can do the under body power wash & undercoat in one day.

I was unable to get what I really wanted, had my eye on some Michelin tires, but I had to spend 36.00 on the headlight assembly, and 58.00 on the L Bracket, bolts, and clip/nuts that hold the part on the driver side that holds what holds the headlamp assembly to the body, so I only had around 300.00 to spend, so I had to get some cheap brand called Good Ride, never heard of them before, and the tread patterns look a bit goofy, but they are doing well so far, not sure how they will do in the winter, I may have to get some chains in case I end up getting stuck.
I am just happy I do not need to get new struts for the front, and replace the ball joints yet, I do already have the ball joints, and they are on the list of stuff to do in the future.

Hmm, this makes me feel good about the brand, NOT!

Hopefully they fixed issues making the tires faulty, there better be gum strips inside of mine!
I really wanted better brand name tires, but could not afford to drive another month with this rejection sticker, I have already gotten one 104.00 ticket for a bad inspection sticker.

Well you do with what you got and I can appreciate that. I like the name good ride..
Post a pic of them, be interested to see pattern. As far as I'm concerned any new tires are better than aged (over 6 years old) bald ones!
When I did my Michelin'* I got the best deal I could on give away sale for the Destiny'* and they were over $750 installed/balanced.
I think it is close to 3 years now later they are still in excellent shape. Tread wear only 35% has worn off my guess.
I still believe a pair of new winter tires for the front would be best for here. X-mas wish list.....
Is there a way to check recall with the tire numbers..Do they have a DOT code enable you to read the date codes?
