We have collected a few technical articles over the years that you might find as useful and/or interesting as we did. They are courtesy of Kit Car Magazine and Car Craft Magazine in the late '90s, and Family Handyman from February 2012. As thanks to these magazines we encourage you to visit their web sites (links below) and support their organizations. They have a great selection of articles and information in their archives that apply directly to Fieros as well as your mom's grocery-getter. For example, who wouldn't want to know the techniques of making faded paint look nearly new again? Check the links and do some digging.
