1989 Olds Toronado. It's been modified from a front to a rear cable mount to fit the Fiero.

real nice work, very clean looking interior, Looks much better than I thought it would thinking camry dash, very well done. What column did you use , I want to start my c5 swap soon and have a sebring column I plan on using. I was doing my cluster the same way with the remote electronics.
Your guage faces look much better than mine... I could not get the lines as straight and smooth, using mspaint probably not the best to use anyways, I will try and redo mine after im sure it all works correctly..

The column is 2003 Grand Am. I chose it because it did not have a column mounted ignition switch and the size of the plastic surround fit the hole in the dash. Also, staying with a GM column meant wiring the switches was easier. The wiper switch was the hardest to convert to work with the Fiero wiper board. A lot of the newer Chrysler switches operate on a multiplexed voltage signal through the BCM so you may have trouble making the sebring column switches work for you. For example, the wiper switch on the 03' 300m has only 1 wire that goes to the BCM.

For the gauge faces, I downloaded a trial version of Corel Draw X6. It's fully functional software you can use for 30 days. I went on Youtube and watched a couple videos on how to make clock faces with X6. Clock faces and gauge faces are essentially the same thing, so once I figured out the basics, I was able to make a few different versions quite easily. Go here: http://www.corel.com/corel/...v1k74CFahAMgodjGQAug and click on "download trial". It will give you the full version to try for a month.

thanks for info and link I will download and try it. The sebring column fits the c5 dash well but like you said some have had trouble making the wipers work, others have had no problems. I have not got that far yet just have all parts as of now.. anyways sorry hijacking your thread , thank you for info.
You do great work after going to original thread I will be following your progress ..
