I wanted a set as well and found out they are no longer made. I know the ones without the window are. I was thinking of ways to recreate this and i came up with using either wood or foam to create a mold for vacuum forming the window, or heating plastic then forming it over the mold. Basically take the scoop cut it out trace the outline and carve out parts for the lip. Just a rough idea but i think it might work.

The windows are flat. Get a pieceof plexiglass and cut it like the one in the pic above.
OR
I always wondered IF the new mustang's would fit??? either the vent or fins. Since you would have a blank panel (scoop without window) it should fit insome sort of way I bet. Try it!

I would think the 05-13/ maybe 2014 mustang. I would measure the depth of the window and size length width. i looked online for window dimensions and found none, but if they are the correct dimension or trim-able to the needed size i would think you would just need to measure how thick the window is and then make a fiberglass lip to rest the window against for mounting. I ran into more louvered conversion windows then actual plain windows. I think I'm going to hunt about through some dealers and possibly in salvage yards. I have been trying to figure it out so when I'm ready to get to the project i can just go.

If you want the window, just cut it out with a jigsaw. Then sand and finish the raw edge. All you need to do then is use some black automotive silicone to attach some lexan windows to the inside. It wont come off normally, but If you want, you could also put some nice stainless countersunk screws in 4 or 5 places spaced around the edge from the outside into sheet metal clips on the lexan. Then you would have to knock them out with a hammer.

Hmmm... that green car seems oddly familiar?

I originally purchased the quarter window scoops from Ms Lori. Lost one on the highway en route to Dells Run 07 (it was then run over by a large truck - total loss). I ordered the replacement set through The Fiero Store - however they only had clear windows at the time, so I made a replacement from a piece of tinted plex (not quite as dark as the original, but close enough). I was unaware that TFS was no longer offering them for sale... always worth an email inquiry - as they pulled them from the site for a time when the window parts weren't available.

FWIW - the ones from Ms Lori came with flat, square-cut plex windows. The ones from the TFS were lower profile and finished a little nicer. Also - normal silicone is not sufficient to keep them in long-term. Windshield adhesive is your friend!

Looking for Fiero posters?

If they are flat, clear, and you can give me dimensions and tell me what material you want, I can make you a replacement. We can discuss a price.

Let me know what you think.

Edit to say that they can be tinted, not just clear. I can't guarantee I can find the exact match to the tint on the other side though.

Minn, I mean to cut the window larger than the opening, and put it on the inside of the opening. You can use quality 2 sided molding tape, silicone or like you suggest windshield adhesive. I use silicone on many many things, and never had any problems....its a lot stronger than you think. Ive attached hood hinges to a friends motorhome years ago (10+) and its still on, hood scoops that people didnt want any holes, lexan windows in race cars, wheel center caps. My own Fiero had them attached...and sealed on...with silicone. Was nice I didnt have water dripping out for an hour after a car wash.

Revin - always nice to see you "keeping up"

Roger... I agree that many things can be held on with silicone, but my first hand experience with my quarter window scoops and windows might suggest otherwise! I do like the idea of customizing a set by installing the window on the inside... A little creative routing of the glass could make for a nice fit & finish.

Mine may have been aided by the bead I put around the window after it was installed. It totally sealed it and gave it a finished look with no gap. It prob helped to 'lock' it in.
