I'll look through my photos and see if I took a picture of them.

They were on my wife's Black Formula at the 35th. People dont really tend to notice them on black cars.. they look like they belong and the car just looks sleeker. They fit nice. Ours were from Ken Hines, I believe they are the same sold today.

more links in this link about them as well

I have a set of these on my 85 GT. I got them from Ken Hines also. They fit nicely. If you want I can email you some pictures of them. I can't get the Picture app to work for this site. PM me your email address if you would like some pictures.

These replace the shock vents/trim? Like eliminates them? If so also can mess up airflow in the cabin.
Fiero and many others has fresh air for you all the time when you drive even heater/ac off.
Read your owners book to see this. http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/141688.html
More data in FSM heater box section.

Fiero small cabin and widows shut can make you sleep or worse as CO2 and engine flumes build up w/o this. Rear firewall "seals" for cables and wiring is often not 100% sealed to start and many are damage/missing after 30+ years.

That is my car. Here is a better pic.


I have had the GT based vents on the Notchie since 2013 and really like the sleeker look. Unlike the fastback cars, the notchies don't have the full lip flange all the way around the opening (no lip at the top or bottom), so they can flutter a bit at speed (80 mph), and the venting concern is a non-issue due to the untaped gaps as well as the rear opening into the fuel fill area under the upper frame rail. They are a little flat in the center of the opening and would be better with the proper curve in the center like the GT windows, but overall they still are much better looking (IMO) than the stock setup with the bulky frame.

There are two styles, one with the lower notch to clear the top of the door and one that doesn't have the notch. My first set had a notch, but my 2nd set (after I had one disappear while the car was parked) didn't, but I went ahead an added it.

Here is what I posted about the install in my build thread:

The ugly section of the car that needs covering:


3M molding tape:



One place of interference. The top of the 1/4 panel sticks up past the top of the tape surface. I used a hand held grinder to bevel the top of this panel (it is hidden behind the sail panel) and did add a 2nd layer of 3M tape to the bottom 2" of the window so the edge would be held with tape and the gap where it transitioned between 1 layer and 2 layers of 3M tape would happen mid window.
