I don't suppose there is an option for the mud guards? Does anybody install them back on the car? My passenger side looks better than the drivers side, still not terrible but I would like the new look. Trying to bring the car back to "new".

I guess it's going to depend on what you have. Fieros did not come stock with mud flap guards. GM offered an aftermarket Fiero mud flap that had contour provisions along the wheel well. They are a bit difficult to find since many did not survive. Also, there are a good handful of various aftermarket "flat" flaps that simply bolt up using the fender liner hardware mount points.

The Fiero Store actually sells a set of flat flaps that universally mount with the "Fiero" logo. You simply measure your hole points, put holes into them, then bolt them to your fender liner.

Not behind the wheels, it's below the wheel well plastic. It runs below in between the wheels and the engine. I will get a picture and post.

Either the Fiero Store or Rodney Dickman make reproduction mud guards, better than the originals when I got some for my old Fiero.. Been a while since I looked for Fiero parts, got into Mini's.

Given that's what you were talking about, you should definitely have them installed.
My car is native to a low rust region, but one of those guards was missing when I got it. On that side, the engine cradle had numerous pinpoints of surface rust, apparently caused by rock chips. The other side, with the wheel liner still installed, was pristine. Those liners are definitely important, even though they're a pain to remove.

Just noticed that Dickman doesn't have pre-88 liners anymore. That sucks.. I'm using an incorrect year liner myself. Basically works but it's not quite right.

I would think a person could make one from a flat sheet of good rubber, they would just need an original for a stencil?

Mine are in descent shape but this is probably what I will do. Taking off the drivers side to get the engine out I tore it a little. Although the TFS price is resonable if they are quality materials.
