FYI I've owned all these cars

This one is a DGP


This one is also a DGP


This one is a fiero warehouse


The difference between them is if you look at the area just above the taillights the FW extends all the way down to the taillights where as the DGP extends down half way to them, also if you look at the lock arear the FW has a full circle around it where as the DGP has a half circle around it, There are also IRM spoilers Which I think are like the FW (cant recall what the last one I saw looked like ) The difference you don't see is the FW is a little lighter than the DGP, (I've had the decklid of the orange one and my IMSA fall o me while working on them) Another good way to tell is Most DGP products had a DGP sticker on them on there underside, However if you take it off be very Gentle with it, they are delicate and somewhat expensive,

Both of them could be DGP, IRM, or Fiero Warehouse.
When I talked with Doug, I believe he said he and Sage had molds for both types.
(The back story is that DGP was sold to IRM. IRM's fiberglass business was sold to Fiero Warehouse, aka Doug. Sage actually has the molds and does the manufacturing.)

Raydar nailed it.

Doug bought the molds from Jim Sutter at IRM, who bought some of them from DGP. The version that comes half way down the rear trunk edge is DGP, while the one that comes all the way down with a "hole" cut out for the key/lock, was made by IRM. At least that is what we were told when we picked both versions up with the rest of IRM's molds. The DGP version is marked as such in the mold, while the IRM mold has no markings.

HAGO!
