There is a metal plate out there (see eBay) that holds (3) standard 2 1/16" gauges and uses the stock pod minus the faceplate and guts.

How about an easy one.
The nice clear flush mount head light covers. Not the ones with the bubble/hump. Like the ones that used to be made for the "Camaro" bulbs. (Munson)
Just the covers, not the assembly.
I have found a sweet spot for my 60mm projectors (low beams Hella (DOT,SAE stamps), high beams EOE) that allow me to mount them using a flat clear cover. They also give me a real close range. I can get them low enough to shine less than 8 feet in front. Right now they are aimed too low.
I had made a set out of poly carbonate. Also tried acrylic. The acrylics I could get the "arc", but are too brittle. The poly carbonate I can only make flat. Just doesn't look right.

If any of you Fiero fabricators need something cnc routed 2d from plates of plastic, wood, or whatever I might be able to give you a hand. I have access to and do all the toolpath programming for our 4' by 8' Onsrud machine at my job. I will do programming for ha has and boss won't kill you on router time. If you want it as accurate as your diagrams or DXFs and the same every time let me know. Yes I have 2 88s notchies with 1 almost back together, (I tell my wife) if some fit needs to be tested.

Slammed, no one is making Aus stage II side scoops at all. I'd buy one if you have it available along with black tinted GT quarter windows. Pretty please! The whole three panels on each side along with F355 rockers if possible. Can you please add it to the list? Thanks

Hi Slammed,
would your projects happen to include new radio Hvac control pods? It seems almost all fieros suffer from it pulling apart and needing glued to look half way decent.

Slammed,
I was told that AusFiero was willing to sell his mold for $500 along with $300 for shipping. The mold will need to be redone. Part of the deal also includes providing two free scoops for two people in the states that he promised. I think it's not fair that we have to provide two free scoops on his behalf and it might be cheaper to just copy it off another one.

Maybe you could renegotiate & see if you could reach a better deal.

His molds won't really help. It would be just as much work for me to 3D scan a set, scale it down slightly, cast and machine. I don't do fiberglass nor do I want to. Every plastic part I make is vacuum/blow formed, machined from stock or injected. Lighter, stronger parts and not nearly as labor intensive. Cheaper too. I can run my programs and pretty much walk away. Laying fiberglass sucks

Many years ago, I had a pop-out cupholder that fit into a half-DIN slot. So I put a single-DIN radio in the Fiero, and put the cupholder above the radio. The cupholder was made by some aftermarket company, I forget which. I don't have that cupholder anymore. But ironically, my Jetta has something very similar. See link below.

Blacktree's solution may be the only way to mount a cupholder in the dash. I just looked at a dash I have in the garage and the only other place is in the very bottom below the dash pocket on the passenger side. All other areas have ductwork behind it.

This.

...also some others

Rear spoiler gaskets (between the deck lid and stands)
T-top end caps
Mirror gaskets
Glove box?

Already mentioned, but I am so down for a whole set of the 88 dot matrix console and gauge trim pieces.

I'm a few days behind. Saturday was my last day at my old job and they worked me really hard that week. Not cool but it is what it is. The edge detection on my laser isn't working so I'm in the middle of trying to fix it.

By far the biggest thing I want is an under dash sub box for a 8inch sub. Also I think stealth wing stands, and a hatchback conversion are things to look into.

If you are planning on making new a pillar trim already would it be a stretch to have a gauge pod molded one too? I have an add on one right now with 2 gauges but would love it if it was one piece

That is something I have been thinking about

Windows are almost done. I have a few that are so close to being perfect. I had to order a few parts for my laser because the edge detection was no longer working and I wasn't about to cut and polish all these edges by hand. I will post some pictures this weekend and will likely have them for sale next week.

A couple of technical questions about the windows, if I may. I have a low mileage GT lined up to get your windows when they're available.

Are you printing all the black in one pass? What is the ink used to print? You can PM that information if you'd like to keep it proprietary. Do you have the compound curves as found in the OEM windows?

All the black is done in one pass with nazdar 9600 with an adhesion promoter

The molds were made from original windows and are a 100% accurate reproduction. They are completely indistinguishable from OE

Yuo're doing it the right way. Good choice of ink. If these turn out the way it seems to be going I'd give you a big hug and a kiss. Even if you turn out to be a big burly guy. I might even have to get in line to do it, too.

Speedo gauge trim, HVAC trim and shift console trim pieces in black or carbon fiber would be nice. I have carbon fiber overlays and it's hard to make those look good with all the cutting involved.

So I had an idea. On the Series II and III superchargers (more accurately the Eaton M90 Gen 3 and Gen 5) there is a threaded hole on top. From the factory this hole has a stud threaded into it that holds on the plastic engine cover. This engine cover doesn't work with how it is mounted in the Fiero, so it is usually discarded.

So here's the idea-- create a piece that threads into that hole. On top of the threaded piece have something like a 1" plastic disc. Then make a separate plastic piece that would be glued onto the first piece. That plastic piece could have any number of emblems, decals, whatever on it. The reason that they would ship separately would be two fold. First would be that the user would bottom out the threaded piece in the hole, and then glue the top piece on in the proper orientation. That way whenever it is removed, it bottoms back out the same way and orients properly every time. Secondly that would allow you to only need to make one type of threaded piece and would allow for any number of attachable plates of various sizes.

Let me know if you're having trouble picturing this. It makes total sense in my head, but so do a lot of things that I am unable to articulate in a way that is comprehensible to other human beings.
