Hey Guys,
I have a few small to medium sized cracks in my dash, and I was wondering about these dash mats from The Fiero Store..
Has anyone ever installed one?
Is it a pain in the butt to do?
Does the dash look really bulky afterwards?.. Or is the dash mat really thin?
Would it be easier to just get a dash repair kit?

Thank you for any info guys
Todd

Ive never installed one on a Fiero, but everything else that i've used them on looks great! Chevy trucks, Dodge trucks, etc. Don't look bulky. Sometimes you do have to trim the edges slightly. Be sure to test fit before gluing. Google search Coverlay Manufacturing. They offer really good explanations and video instructions.

I've mostly been pleased with the vast majority of the items that I've purchased from the Fiero Store. The only thing I would say though is that I've never really been a fan of dash caps. I've seen them on the Porsche 944 and was less than pleased. I've also seen them on the 2nd gen TransAm and have also been less than pleased. Any dissatisfaction that I would have with a dash cap would be IN SPITE of the Fiero Store's decent quality, and more to do with me just not liking the fix.

If you're willing to spend some money, I would recommend you get it leather wrapped by one of the shops online that offer this. ALSO... if you're feeling adventurous, you can actually try to do it yourself (it's not too difficult):

Fellas,
Do you think this will work on the Fiero dash?

Cordially,
kevin

Interesting video. Especially like the Ford cassette deck installed in the Porsche.

Thank you for the reply guys.. and ya until I can actually see some pics of a dash mat from the Fiero Store installed, I'm going to hold out on fixing the dash for now..
Just out of curiosity .. how much would it cost to have my dash leather wrapped from an online store?
we talking in the 1,000s?
also any recommended shops off the top of anyone's head, that does this process?
Thanks
Todd

I was trying to find the place that I had originally found that does Porsche 944 dashes. I was thinking of going with it on my Porsche 944 a while back, but ended up just getting a new replacement dash for $$$.

There are some places that wrap the ENTIRE dash, even with different color leathers as well. I remember seeing a price-tag of around $500-600

See thats not to bad, the entire dash wrapped for 600 I would do.. will most likely be a project for down the line after the rest of the interior is done

From The Fiero Store website: $120 plus delivery to Ontario Canada by UPS $103. Current exchange rate total: $250.
Unscrupulous Pirates Society will charge collection fees, brokerage & duties at the door. I suspect around $300 delivered.

For comparison, UPS will deliver a dash to Niagara Falls NY (30 minutes away) for $37.47.

I had one delivery by UPS from The Fiero Store and will never use them again if there is any other option.
Other shipments by USPS & Canada Post didn't cost extra & I tracked the shipments online to my door.

Reviving this post to see if anyone has had any experience with these Fiero Store dash covers the OP was asking about.

Ya, UPS is a killer for us Canadians. TFS has no choice to ship UPS if the box is to big to ship USPS.
I ordered a new 88 brake line kit and a new clutch line from them, and the box was too big to ship via UPS.

Anything that can be shipped USPS to Canada is the best and cheapest way.

The next time I have to get a big bulk item, I'll go UPS and bite the bullet and pay. Cheaper than driving there and picking it up, ehh??
