Hello. Curious what one of these is worth as I've got a brand new one squirrelled away in my garage. I'm not sure if I'll ever use it but not sure if I want to part with it either as it looks like they are no longer being made.

A lot would depend on how well it fits. Some are nearly perfect, others are not even close without a total fiberglass rebuild job. If you have to cut it all up and glass it to make it fit, you could make a better one from scratch by yourself. Id pay a few hundred or a little more for one that fit right up. If its like from Imaginary Glass, I wouldnt give you $5.00 for it.

Oh, I didn't know these had fitment issues. I got it from him in Carlisle PA years ago when they still had the Fiero/kit car shows. Maybe I'm wrong about the supplier. I see from that site he's in Florida. The company I got it from I thought was more local to PA. Possibly Ohio or Virginia. It looks very nice and solid but I never installed it so you may be right.

He had a woman that worked for him (she is a true artist and perfectionist)...that left for a few years and now I believe have since returned.

My guess...is that yours is old enough that it has a good fit...but can't say for sure.

I'm certain that Jim Shulz, (Fiero Fiberglass) has never been to Carlisle, so if you bought something from someone there at the show it is hard to say exactly what you have.

Jim should be along in this thread soon to clarify that and any other issues or misconceptions.

If you bought it from a vendor in PA at a show, it's not from Fiero Fiberglass unless they obtained it second hand. We have never been to any shows in PA. Post some pictures of it and I can tell you if it's one of ours or not.

We only sold a few of these bumper and only 2 had fitment issues that I know of. They weren't horrible issues but it was enough that I didn't want to sell them till the issues were addressed. The center of the bumper sat about 1/4" lower than the hood and the left side, where it wrapped around, flared out about an inch.

Yes, I have one of the 2 bumpers mentioned. It is not a hugely noticeable problem, just as mentioned the bumper is about a 1/4" lower in the center than the hood.

When I told them about my bumper not lining up correctly, Fiero Fiberglass told me when I am ready to bring my car to them and leave it for a few days. (We are just a couple hour away from each other). He said they would make it right. This included taking the bumper off, repairing it, and shaping it and custom fitting it to my car. On top of that then painting it to match my car. Then offering to deliver it back to me! The only cost, out of my pocket, would be the $50 for a quart of paint for the bumper to match my car.

This is what I call AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!

I've been to their shop a few times (Fiero Fiberglass, that is). Dan is very talented at fiberglass fabrication. And Jimmy has very good business sense. I have plenty of respect for both of them.

This was from the maker and had several at the show along with other items. I'll have to look, might still have the receipt.
