I was in another thread and in came to me that there seems to be quite a few things that where cool for the Fiero that companies just don't make anymore. so instead of high jacking that thread, here is my question.
What cool or useful things did someone use to make that you can't get now? One is the GT sail scoops with the windows and factory looking gloveboxes. So what can y'all think of?

Anything.

I have a seat heater hooked up to mine. Mr. Mikes seat covers with heater. Also, you could use it for turning on and off a cooling fan override. I have one of those too and it is VERY useful when setting in traffic at 100F. My temp stays very reasonable.

Real aluminum pedal covers. You take the rubber pads off and drill 4 holes to mount the curved aluminum pads directly to the brake and clutch pedal. The gas pedal covers the plastic pedal. The also had either Fiero or Fiero GT on them as well.

It was for the v6 if I Remember and was 2 grand.
For the performance the v6 puts out and what this adds to it, it's still much more smarter to put that 2k towards a swap .

It's a shame because if I had more time, I would continue refinishing GT lenses also.

I had the same switch so I could turn on the cooling fan when I was stuck in traffic. Worked like a champ several times when it was needed.

If you have AC, turning it on will turn on the front fan.

Wouldn't they be slippery if your shoes were wet?

I've been using a pair in my car for about a year, I guess. All kinds of weather. Never noticed them being slippery when wet. They are made from shop floor mat material. I would expect the manufacturers to attempt to make them as non-slip as economically possible.

I think he was asking about the pedals, not the floor mats. Yes, smooth polished pedals can be slippery. The S-10 I used to have had the rubber pads worn off/removed, and the pedals were slippery. There are some good pedal designs that are designed not to slip, but I don't know if any fit in the Fiero. I have some fake Mugen sports pedals in my del Sol, that grip really well (they have a hard steel wool style to them, for gripping), that look like this:

The clutch/brake pedals might fit the Fiero. Haven't tried to fit them. You can pick up the fake ones for cheap on eBay though. There are plenty of similar styles that have similar machining or features to help with grip. Some skateboard grip tape on the polished pedals might help too.

That was my thought, then why have polished pedals, when you have to cover them

Eh... I guess I don't look at pedals as something pretty, more functional and the more grip, the better (brake and clutch).
