I also am looking to do a custom interior, and have a long way to go. I am working to build a touchscreen into the center console, and haven't started as of yet.

I did however get the speaker door panels from the Fiero Store, and had them covered. They make a big difference compared to the original carpeted lower and plastic upper

Oh that looks nice, I am currently working on a simplistic language for my LCD gauge cluster. I'm wanting to go away from 80's interior for the most part. I do want to keep the separate door panel like you have though.

Austin,

Here is my interior:


In my opinion there is one interior that is hands above the rest and you too can place it in your Fiero! It's the G1 from Rob Amida.

The G1 is a Gallardo inspired interior and here is the link to his tread:
http://www.fiero.nl/forum/F.../HTML/000091-53.html

Just PM him if you are interested in one.

I have this interior on one of my cars (Amida F355 interior with VDO instrumentation) and really like it.

The dash is out of a 1992 Toyota Camry. You can see the install details in my build thread here: http://www.fiero.nl/forum/F...3/HTML/000139-7.html

The shifter is from a 1989 Olds Toronado.

Did you have that dash upholstered or did it come in that color?
That matches the dark Gray very well.

That's the factory Toyota color. It's a couple shades darker than the door panels but close. I may re-cover it this winter.

@txopie, I was in a hurry yesterday but when I tried to call it would go through. @hnthomps that interior is beautiful. I would like that interior except for the fact that the base price is 2k, the craftsmanship is amazing and probably worth it but I would personally fiberglass my own before I spent that on it :P

I wish that the base price was only $2000 and if it was I would buy a couple more. I have a good portion of the quoted price just in the new VDO instrumentation, wiring harness, and alternator modifications to get an rpm signal. That being said, I really like this interior and do not regret going this route with the Amida interior.

Absolutely love that interior! I sent Amida a P.M. and he gave me some details regarding price. I would love to do this to my car, but it seems like a lot of work. How long did it take you? And did you have any previous experience doing interiors?

How much effort do you want to put into it? It is a fair amount of work and a large time suck.

TXOPIE, that dash is nice, but I really like Mickey Moose's. I looked at doing the Firebird dash, but there was already too much to do...and I don't think I could complete it between May and September,

Not really all that customized. More function than style ; mostly stock with a few custom features.
BTW: the bullet gauges are: Boost, Exhaust temp, Oil pressure , Volts; the toggle switches are, Rad fan relay bypass, Inter-cooler fan, Error codes. To retain my idiot lights and provide backup gauges, I kept the stock aux gauge panel and located it under the passenger side of the dash. It's not all that noticeable when viewed from sitting or standing.

Firebird (dash, console, seats, gauges - years varied) - the door panels are a hybrid of the Fiero panels using modified Firebird parts and custom parts made to resemble the Firebird look.

Dash and console took about 2 months to install based on a couple of hours ever other night or so - had some issues unique to the car getting the gauges to work, but this was due to the 4.9l installed. Door panels took me longer, but to be fair it was the first time I attempted anything like that and I changed the look a couple of times plus mods to the doors to allow 6.5" flush mount speakers to be installed. Then probably another month to figure out how to get the HVAC controls to merge with the Fiero system.

I also did have the Firebird steering wheel installed at 1 point (with the radio controls) but I have Orangutang like arms and it felt too close for my liking (the way the wheel is designed it sits closer to you than the Fiero wheel).

The plus side is all this has since been well documented (although post massively spaced out) that anyone following afterwards it would be a bit easier (see the "designing a new dash" thread). http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum3/HTML/000119.html

Good looking stuff, all.

Sure like the overall appearance of the Amida, but the two major gages look oddly positioned and could be difficult to view at their extremes. They should be more centrally located in the gage pod.

I really like the 92 Camry dash, but again the gages don't do it for me. The cluster is pretty vanilla looking, but looks easy to read. The stereo looks to be low in the panel too. I wouldn't want to fight a CD around the shifter. Surprisingly nice looking overall.

Those two make the cabin look a little less constricted than the stock cabin does.

I can tell you that having a different dash gives the car a whole new feel, not sure if they actually give any more room - well that would have to be determined - but it does make it look/seem like it. I would tend to think that it is just the way we perceive it.

I've had the firebird interior since 2002...


It's starting to feel a little dated to me... I would like to get something from the 2010's what's out there??
