I have a question for you. The two hinges at the top of the rear clip that it rotates upward on. Are those bolts with nuts on the end or just pins that inserted. I need to remove the rear clip on one.

Sorry I don't understand you question but unless you have a kit with extended roof like mine you have hinges that are different. Mine are on a roll bar that sits back from rear window.

Thanks any way. This one has 2 hinges with what looks like bolts. I'm just not sure if they are really bolts or just pins that will slide out.

Thank's John for the Pisa stuff you sent me. Looks good and I am going to call them and talk about getting dash.

Getting close to purchasing Pisa Euro Dash but i have a question. The VDO guages that Pisa sells are the Cockpit International Series and the speedometer reads 160mph. Does anybody know if VDO sells a 200 or 220 mph speedo that would also work.





Thank's Rob

I remember there were a couple of Kitcar websites that went over the speedo coversion on Fieros. Look in the Lamborghini section. They even have a step by step to make your own overlays to (in their case) look like Lambo gauges. If I can find the link again I'll post it.

Did some searching and found this. Don't know if its compatible though and who sell this in US.

VDO Vision 100 mm, range: 0-220 mph/330 km/h Part no.: 437-015-009G

VDO Vision speedometers are electronic and fully programmable to match all vehicle setups. Compatible with the vast majority of OEM and aftermarket speed sensors, these speedometers are easy to install and program to suit. The LCD odometer shows Total recorded distance and, by pressing the front mounted rubber button, Trip distance. The Trip odometer counts up 999.9 (miles or kilometres depending on speedometer main unit of scale) and is resetable. The Total odometer can not be reset and will store recorded mileage without the need for a constant voltage supply.

Ferrobi, great job on those gauges!!
I'm curious, what software do you use to make those gauge printouts? Photoshop, or Illustrator, or a different one? I would love to redo the gauges for the regular Fiero cluster.

Cool, that's what I use most of the time. Easy and fast :P

I just can't get smooth circles with paint and Anti-Aliasing.

He even painted the small knob for the driver's mirror adjuster red and white circles on the tail-lights !? I wonder if he has a little dog inside with a bobbing head and eyes that blink with the turn signals . That's a REALLY whacked trim job ......

"Stupid fast." I've driven a lot of cars in my life, including '60's muscle cars - this is the fastest one yet. Right now I'm in the middle of finishing installing aftermarket A/C. About as much fun as a trip to the dentist - except with the dentist you know you're done in about an hour. Two more weeks, minimum........
