Hi Loren


I purchased a set in July and they look original and fit well. They are indeed thicker than other repro sets I have had and come with the dot matrix pattern and the GT logo as would the originals. Hope this helps.

Before you make a purchase, do some searching for discussions on GT quarterwindows. Chris Cook, The Fiero Store and Kahines can be used as keywords.

When I had them replaced on my "fastback" Fieros, the installer used the goop that you'd use for installing windshields. There has been some issues with the double stick tape that held on the originals coming loose.

Old lar- did they use the stuff that is black and sets up like silicon? How long ago and I take it that it is holing up well?

Yeah, it is the black goop. The sail panels have been in for about 15 years. The passenger's side is starting to craze as they were OEM sail panels. I still have a new set in storage and was thinking about replacing it, but as for now they aren't that bad.

Whether you use double side tape, silicone, Gorilla Glue, self vulcanizing rubber sealant or whatever to install the windows, if you get a set of windows that are printed with the wrong ink/paint, if the paint won't bond to the window, the paint will peel off and the window will detach. That's why you need to do the research.

Removing the windows will require that you remove the inner sail panel trim piece. On OEM windows, there is a piece of mono filament line applied to the back that is intended to be used to separate the window from the body. If it hasn't rotted, that's the bet way to remove them. Just be very careful about breaking them. The broken edges are extremely sharp.
