Mrs. Fungus got home from work while I was trying to extract the slide pins. The top one simply would not come out, and I had to knock it out with a drift; I had gotten it out and was just turning to the second one when she drove up.
That ended the car work for the night.
I have no idea why the caliper slides won't move in their bores. They're clean, the bores are lubed--yet they won't budge unless I hit them with a hammer...and that was after I was able to push them in with my thumbs.
One way or another I need to get the Fiero buttoned up and back in the garage today. For dang sure I'm not going to figure it out at 5:30 in the morning, though; and the alarm's set to go off at 8, and when it does I have to run to the store before I can return to bed.
Which I'm also going to do right now.
