Quick question for yall.

I picked this up recently and despite my best efforts, I haven't been able to find any pictures of other Fieros with these "Fiero SE" side moldings. Were they some oddball factory option, or were they custom by the car's previous owner? I can't imagine they were custom since everything else on this one is factory stock, but anything's possible.

Aftermarket, as previously stated.
Is it done with paint, vinyl or decal?

Paint. The red and white stripes at the top and bottom (which you can't see very well because of the picture quality, sry) are vinyl I believe. The original owner kept meticulous records and I don't see anything about custom sides, so I'm betting it was some dealer swag.

On a somewhat related note, how common are these?

I got a set with my 86 SE. .I bought it in '99 from the second owner with 30,009 miles. I find them on a somewhat regular basis in cars in the wrecking yards.

Build quality in the 86 model year was very high. Pontiac had not yet started to cut corners to reduce costs, at least as drastically as in later years.
The aero notchback is my personal favorite for styling (Formula is second).
The SE's were well appointed in top trim. Mine had full power, sunroof, subwoofer stereo and leather trim.
The addition of the Fiero Store front and rear heavy duty sway bars (as a matched set), and the 15" lace wheels with good rubber makes for a big improvement in handling.

I have a set of GT wheels sitting around (I've been using them as furniture in my apartment) but I don't know yet if I'll put them on. I love the fact that the factory wheels seem to have been lightly dusted with the same bronze/gold color on the inside of their spokes, so it has a light but noticeable tint that matches the body. I have definitely noticed that the build quality also seems to be much higher than on my '87 GT, down to subtle things like the quality of the screws used on the vent covers.
Mine has almost all of the options for an SE, also. Full power, sunroof, subwoofer, leather. It even came with the factory locking lug nuts, but I had to have them removed because the key had been lost. And they're kind of silly anyway.
The '86s are seriously underrated, and I didn't appreciate that til I found a clean example and saw it in person.
