Doesn't look like they are the whole dew wipe. I don't see the bracket that the mirror bolts go through

They are just selling the weatherstrips only with the holes punched. Looks like you would still need brackets, new felt for the tabs, new cushion blocks (see pic), and the correct rivets. Pop rivets won't work because they won't allow the dew wipe to sit flat against the door.

Cushion blocks:

Those have been around for a while and some outfit online sells them for $48/pr. Seajai is correct, its just a drilled weatherstrip, no mirror bracket some pads but really is it worth the time, and effort for the savings?
I'll go with Chris; he has already done the assembly work, using the right materials and there are great reports on his product. As soon as he has a pair for me that's the way I'm going. I look at it this way, Dew Wipes on a Fiero almost always need to be replaced but hardly ever need to be done again. Your investment for Chris premium dew wipes should last years.

If you can't find OEM then Seajais are the best way to go. Just do it right the first time.

Sorry, thought I replied, it's been a busy couple of weeks. I did add you to the list though (#23)

Seajai's might be better than the OEM weatherstrips. The original weatherstrips became all brittle and failed with age. True that they lasted a long time but my point is that Chris weather strips are made of fresh, current technology materials. The originals, if you can find them, were made years ago, are now into the aging process and may be made from older technology materials. It's like buying tires. Fresh tires are always better than new old stock tires.

I bought sets years ago from FieroJohn I think it was? Does he still produce them?

Super nice quality those were.
