Yes. You can get this door by TXGOOD from Blacktop Racing.

You could also add one of these

It looks nice, and I've heard good things about them.

Are the subs better mounted towards the floor or near the top behind the seats, like the one that FS sells called the 84-88 Rear Wall Speaker Panel are near the top. What's the advantages/disadvantages of each?

Thanks.

In my convertible, I installed two small speakers into the door and covered with color matching fabric (looked like speaker fabric). Worked great!

If I remember correctly what the Fiero store sells isn't a sub enclosure it's just a plastic panel that allows you to mount a full range speaker like a 6.5" 3-way or something. For what I did, if you look at the center console you can see the rear wall was extended forward about a inch and quarter at the top. It was about a two and a half inch extension out at the bottom. There is also a channel across the bottom behind some spot welded panels on that rear firewall. I cut those open and sealed both ends to allow the speakers magnet structure more depth for mounting. Those woofers had around a 4-1/2" to 5" mounting depth and sounded awesome. I like when I can turn a stereo up loud enough to make normal conversation impossible to hear while the sound from the audio system still remains clear as a bell.

you can also re-glue it and make it look close to new again.

I used my hot glue gun to fix all the peeling interior. Has not moved in 6 years or so.

I used a special super glue for plastics that you can get at Lowes or Home Depot. It has two parts -- a promoter that looks like a magic marker, which you apply to both surfaces, and the glue. The glue grabs and holds in only a few seconds, so you only have to hold the glued section with your fingers for a bit. You cam do a few inches at a time, and work your way around the assembly. I did two this way, and a number of other warped surround pieces. They all came out fine.

Whatever method you choose, be sure to clean both surfaces first. Clean off that brown foam stuff at the surfaces to be glued. It doesn't like any kind of glue.

This. I use MAX1 glue. Usually sold at boat shows. Bette than Gorilla or anything else I think. I have done probably 5 of them plus all center components.
