Just wondering instead of replacing the Sail Panel Arrowheads with TFS replacements or sanding down and painting, has anyone every thought of a different alternative, like using polished metal inserts, or maybe a older model emblem (not sure if there is any older ones that would fit). Had the idea of making one of those microwave glass melting molds and either making a red glass replacement possibly using melted marbles or stained glass or another idea using clear glass and mounting a high intensity red led behind it. Anyways just a thought I'd throw out there and see if anyone else had any feedback on the subject.
I read somewhere about someone using a larger arrowhead about the size of the raised area on the panel where the current arrowhead is. I can't find where I read this but I think it was either from the G6 or the Grand Prix/Bonneville (not that that narrows it down due to all the different generations). Other than that I haven't seen anything. There's of course the full quarter panel replacement from the Fiero Store that gets rid of that part completely.
I read on here one persons solution. While I sanded and painted my arrowheads black to blend in with the sail panel they chose to get a red reflector and cut new arrowheads from it making them all red. It's another option if nothing else and with a little more work you could probably place a led behind it to light them up when driving lights are on.
I have had them on my car for over a year. I wouldn't say they are poor quality. And they fit perfectly too.
There has been several posts about them fading fast or the chroming (paint or whatever it is on the back side) losing hold to the plastic. That's why I just painted mine black but that was 5 or so years ago. Maybe they've improved them over the years? Anyways, I would probably have not gotten them anyways because with the look I was chasing I wanted to shave all brand/model identifying markers off the exterior anyways. I deleted the "PONTIAC" on the light cover, nose emblems, bumper and had I not sold it the wheels would have had theirs filled in and been painted until I replaced them with aftermarket wheels.
Personally I like it just shaved off and made to look like it was never there. Looking at Fieros at Fiero car shows I like the never there look myself. IMO it could have been left off from the factory. Looks cleaner/better IMO.
Forum member cvxjet (Eric) did custom metal sail panels on his car with a large (6" ish) chrome and red arrowheads from a G6. I saw it on the California Coast Run last weekend. Looked really nice but I forgot to get a pic of it. Send him a PM and I'm sure he will send you a pic.
