hey guys,
i'm gonna be pulling the headliner and fiberglass/recover and while doing some planning,
i was thinking about doing something with the rear panel. I would love to just glass over it,
bit the hairy thing on it now won't allow, and i can't afford the new plastic one from the fiero store.
What have you guys done, or would suggest. i may be forced to cover it in vinyl,
but i would think it might get ripped or punctured easily.
thanks
johnny

That fuzzy carpet stuff comes off. If you cover it in vinyl I would suggest putting some sort of thin foam down first to help hide any imperfections. The previous owner of one of mine stripped off the fuzzy carpet and covered it in regular vinyl and it looks terrible. My plan is to cover mine in the imitation suede headliner material that had the thin foam backing on it.

I dont mind the fabric/carpet. If you had interior stuff covered in fiberglass wouldnt the audio sort of bounce off it and sort of echo?

I replaced the fuzzy stuff some time ago, and I have a good description of what you can expect in my work log. Lots of pictures showing what all is entailed. In the time since I had done that, I have decided to re-do it with the same black micro fiber that I am using on my headliner. This will match better for one, and allow more sound dampening in the interior.

I redid the entire interior of my Cobra II from the headliner to the door pads with denim easy enough to find in any fabric store and looked great when done. Contact cement is your friend, available at any parts store.

Sorry guys no pictures mid 80s and no digital photos and the regular ones I did have I couldn't find if my life depended on it. I am not exactly one of those suit and tie guys and wanted my car to fit my lifestyle, jeans and a t shirt.

I will tell you the wife Fierowitch was a great help with her sewing skills, she helped by making the hanging headliner for those of you who remember those style headliners. I hung it and stretched it, that was one of my jobs when I worked at GM as utility repair and I was familiar with it. Got 8 stitches in 1973 in my right hand to prove it. You kids don't know how easy you got it with the Fieros and the solid headliner, back before these solid headliners they were all hung/suspended from the roof and stretched to the outer edges. Talk about a royal pain in the ass !

But that was my style not necessarily yours so do whatever you want to your cars and post pictures and be proud of your work. This new digital world has created so many advantages and problems for us all, even when photos were on paper if you didn't have multiple photos stored in multiple places many, like those of my Cobra II"s denim interior are lost forever. So backup all you photos in multiple places and ways, get some paper ones made for your walls as well. Especially of family and friends.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do to your cars and again, post some pictures for all of us to see yours !

Steve

I threw that stupid thing away and put dynamat and carpet insulation directly on the metal firewall. Cover it all with carpet. You can add extra insulation on the engine compartment side if you want more. If you do this, you will get MORE LEGROOM. You'll be able to move the seat back more than an inch and also recline the seat further. Getting rid of that thing was one of the best things i ever did.

In my conv. Fiero, I just covered it in vinyl. Held up very well. I would do it again. Contact cement.
