I have had mixed results. Some things I've got have been decent, others a total failure. (Arrow Head emblem near sail panel faded after 1 year, when the original had lasted 15. Also years ago I bought the FS 4 cylinder 'header'. Mega fail. The thing was constantly warping and I went thru a exhaust gasket at a rate of 1 per year. I see they have since stopped selling this)
On the flip side, we don't have many options for out of production stock parts, so I appreciate their effort and will continue to order from them. But as others have said, I wish they would tighen up their quality control.
West Coast Fiero is super expensive and doesn't have a great selection. Rodney has good prices, but not a lot selection either.
Well that's part of the problem, the Fiero cars are cheap, to buy, and not worth much when like new, so a vendor can't offer a part that has a high price tag. Well they can, but not many are going to buy it..
just look at some of the members that have offered an idea, and the bandwagon of people that post "I'm in" once the part is avail, cricket,cricket..
it's a balancing act.. build a quality part and it's cost be to high for the customer base.. or try to make a needed part as a price point that you can move enough to make it worth wild to even bother in the first place..
low volume and a model that's not worth a ton, makes it hard to even get a part made.. Parts for an old MG or aston martin can be quality because the customer base is willing to fork over the money, and the vehicle is worth much more.
The Fiero like it or not, is not worth much and most likely never will be.. it's a wonder anyone makes parts for it..
