Like the way it retains the square features of the original dash but I can foresee some fitment issues.

------------------
Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

Nice.

Just for a moment I thought it may be for a wide body one off?

There seems to be some warping on the right side.

Isn't that par for the coarse?

Not at all. Most Fieros are equipped with equal-opportunity warping; they do not discriminate based on orientation, color, or position.

I believe that to modernize the Fiero dash and add a big improvement a half moon shaped instrument cluster would make a large difference.

Like the one on the '89 Fiero and the pilot Fiero? I agree that that would help, but it'd have to be the whole dash, including the corners, thr HVAC surround, and a glove box. A complete 4th-gen Firebird dash, perhaps?

I'm a big fan of the stock Fiero interior.
Simple, efficient, roomy.
It fits the car like it was made for it.

Same here. But if there are people for Fiero body kits then there are for this I guess.

I don't feel the same. I feel the body of the Fiero was ahead of its time and the dash was nice for its time but still of its time. I'd much rather see a newer styled dash in the Fiero.

Over the years we have seen many dash swaps done and displayed on this forum. Many have looked great but its quite a bit of work. The old dash, radio console, all of the instruments, switches removed and the steering column dropped. Then the Fiero wiring must be swapped to the instruments that fit the new dash, the air ducts reconnected etc etc etc. Its probably about a 20 hr job but the result is stunning. If someone does make a dash upgrade, I feel that the 90 prototype dash would be the easiest to install as it looks as though it uses bolt on parts in the instrument cluster area.
