I do have some cracking around the drivers side speaker, and was thinking about getting this.

Hope they do not mind my posting a copy of their picture for reference..... if they do, I will remove it.



You can just barely see the cracking on mine on the left side of the drivers side speaker, and the rather large crack on the right. I know it is only going to get worse......



If anyone has installed one of these covers, I would love to see some pictures or feedback on it.
I am thinking of possibly only using the whole top part that would go over the speaker area and down to the color transition from dark to light where it rolls under, as the rest of my dash is in really good shape

As usual, thanks for any feedback!

I have recovered a dash with this. Great product also purchased the matching paint for it. Paint in a few days before the install just to make sure it is completely dry. Just follow the instructions, not bad at all.

Good idea. If you do this, post up some pictures. Maybe I'll try the same thing if I still have the car this winter.

Great feed back guys!
I think I will order one this week and post up some pictures as I do it.
I really think a nice straight cut along the line between the bottom and the top, with a bit of an angle to blend it in, will work out nicely.
Hang on as I try this, may take a bit, but I like the idea

Maybe I was just lucky, but I got a junkyard perfect dash for $50 and they are really simple to swap. My original dash had a nice top, but ugly knee bangs at the corners. I converted to a black interior and painted the replacement with SEM paint prior to install. Couldn't be happier. It was rewarding to fully remove a dash to get a feel for future wiring work anyway. Kudos to the fiero store for creating a much needed product, but for half the price, I have a better end result.

I had a near perfect dash but it got waterlogged when my garage flooded last year.

I cannot even find a Fiero in any junkyard around here.
If I could, I would prefer to replace my dash with a nice one to be honest.
