Which lights are you talking about - Pop up driving lights or fog lights or parking lights?

Rob sent me an update - "Over the weekend I was able to smooth out the top surface and start shaping the pocket for the instrument panel. The pocket also doubles as the center steering column mount where the old Fiero cluster used to attach. During the trimming process the fiberglass will be cut away to allow access to wiring & windshield mounts. I wish that I could use a DA for sanding but my 30 gallon compressor doesn't have the air capacity to run it so I'm using alot of elbow grease"

I was talking about the fog lights and turn signals. They look really good!

Turn signals are modified (Cut) fiero turn signals and I don't remember what fog lights are but I will check. They are modified from the original installation from Archie - I took off clear glass lens covers and mounted them on the inside of the driving light buckets. The light and housing is then on the outside of the rear of bucket and is adjustable for direction.

Alright I am going to ask the dumb question... Are you re-doing the already done V6 F40, or is this interior for the primer V8 F40? I got mixed up/didn't read all 6 pages.

Yes I am going to have him upholster it for me also - We still haven't decided if it will be the grayish floc stuff like the original or something smoother like leather or vinyl. I'm leaning towards leather or vinyl in black - much easier to clean. It is going to be mated to his super nice 355 center console and Riceburner's replica HVAC control panel.

Re-doing the already done V6 F40 - the other F40 in primer is not mine.

Rob and I have not discussed what we are going to cover dash with yet but that pod is not covered yet - we might do a pod in carbon fiber and rest of dash upholstered. Not to worried about reflections of pod cover if he does one in carbon fiber.

I will post progress as usual here but you'll also see it first hand when it's in your shop for the LS2 swap.

Rumor has it that the LS2 is a pretty good engine in a Fiero/Ferrari.

I can't speak for him but I will ask him to post here. I'm going to use his F355 console with Riceburner's HVAC

Door panels are still in debate.

Once I get the tooling completed I can fab dashes for other projects as well. Also I could modify my existing 355 door base panels for th F40; the design looks pretty simple .

I just pulled a demo piece out of the new pod mould. It came out pretty nice. Later it will be bonded to the inner surface that has the mounting tabs for the instrument panel. I think I'll cover it with some black leather .

Working out upholstery pattern & proceedures on this new demo pod with some scrap leather that I had laying around. I think I got it figured out.

Thank's for the comments - Rob "Amida" is truly gifted. I have seen his other upholstery and it is amazing.
I think the red stiching will be black though. Any comments ?

Amida found original material and it is Very expensive. I like the look of leather a little better than original dash felt stuff but I might change my mind and go the original route. It would be nice to find some material similar to original stuff but without the big $$$.

Lets be honest though, how many people will go "uhm excuse you this is not original style fabric" let alone how many people will actually know what the real car looks like inside.

I once wore a grey suit made from wool that looked like that. Maybe that dash was covered by Armani .
