http://decah.net doesn't list a specific one for the Fiero. Are you using an existing model they have that works from another car? Or are they just not listing the one they have for a Fiero?

They are now using two types. #11 has the first universal type. I forgot which one they used. The second one is a upgraded one which allows for more vertical movement and outward while opening the door. XS Custom in FL uses the DECAH kit...but modified it too death. Their web page is down.

Edit: pic of newer style:

He's referring to #11 as the # of the choptops that ARCHIE did... #11 is Madcurls silver choptop..
http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/052590.html

Need to add that Madcurl also owns #15... and another one too... (redux)(not chopped yet...)

Custom. If you wanna call it that.

A word from the wise though ... Cutting something like this, even if you got a entireAuto shop's tools. Ain't going to happen.
Trust me ... I tried. Guess I am stubborn. Not as stubborn as this stuff though.
(Well perhaps if you had a week, and nothing else to do)
Your best bet is finding a company that cuts steel for a living. I watched while they cut, or better just pressed it apart. Amazing.

Two hands? How hard is it to lift them? Mine are "two-finger" doors... (unless you try to open the door upwards while you are sitting IN the car.


Do uya have a pic of the struts?

FieroRumor- They goe up easy with very little effort but if you are standing outside the car or even sitting in it , it takes some effort to pull them down . I'll take some pics of the struts and post them .

This time around I purchased the stronger ones. Why? The ones on #11 are adequate but with the modified door panel, there is more weight. Also, the strut that is used is the same one found in newer car VDC doors. The Fiero doors are heavier, so I bumped-up to these. I can use my fat body weight to lower the door once Iím inside the car.
