Amida had to add some core material to make dash more rigid.

Working on the air duct tooling. The 355 duct doesn't fit too well with the new dash, so I'm re-shaping a new one that will connect better to the lower trio.

I'll be doing a prototype dash first to work out fitting & other issues that may pop up. Yours will be #002. The foam core really stiffened it up. I'll probably install the prototype in the Fiero & give it a road test.

VERY NICE, I would love to get into something like that. I bet you don't get to just stop somewhere without having people want to know more about the car.

Great looking ride.

Just got an update from Rob,

Got the plugs made for the new heater duct. I ended up having to totally re-design the 355 duct to make it work in the new dash. It's probably over-doing it since I could have just made it out of tubes & hoses, but It'll probably save time in the long run, and it looks factory too.

I don't know. It would still look verry nice. And nothing shines like a perfect black paint job. The hesitation on my part is due to the fact that I dreamed of owning a red F40 as a kid. I have to believe many guys had that same dream. And seeing your awsome red F40 really brings back that feeling of amazement seeing these from my childhood. I don't think the black would convey those same feelings to all of the guys who get to live their child hood dream vicariously (sp?) through seeing your car.

LOL but it is your car. Go with what makes you feel good.

Carbon Fiber!

This is your new heater duct. Pretty cool huh? Actually, I just needed some CF practice; it's not perfect, but good enought for a heater duct. It's very time consuming when doing vacuum bagging, so I will only offer it as an option.

Hi Rob,

Working on the model for the gauge trio cups. It was a little tricky getting the angles & depth set correctly; had to redo it about 3 or 4 times. The gauges not only have to point to the driver, but they're also aimed upward as well, and on top of that the cups are conical in shape. I think I'll go with the setting seen in the photos with the prototype dash, it's close enough.

Rob,

Here's a couple shots of the gauge trio model which I'm nearly finished shaping. It's a small piece but very complex in shape. I haven't counted the hours but by the time the silicon mould is done for this I'll probably have at least 40 labor hours in it plus $150 in materials. I sure hope that I'll be making a few more Fi40 dashes to spread the R&D.

I looked in his store but he had none. I found a very nice F40 replica on the net (I will post a link to it if I can find it) using a longitudinal engine/trans combo. His lights were Fiat sourced and they looked very similar to yours. I dug around on Ebay and of course the only ones I could find cost more than most whole Fiata are worth LOL.

As I said he does not list them on ebay but ask him a question through one of his ebay products regarding the replica rear tail lights and i'm sure he will tell you more.

Hi Rob,

We're just thawing out from our worst winter storm in 40 years. It got so cold that my air tools would ice up after only 5 minutes of use. I was able to work on the upholstery patterns for the new dash over the weekend and start figuring out the assembly of the prototype. I covered the prototype with foam + suede headliner material. It's easy to use because it stretches, but it's a very thin fabric and a shade lighter than the material that I got for your dash. I lined the gauge trio cups like on the F40; I think it looks pretty good so far. I'm still working on the light switch bezel. Attached a few pics from today. I'll take a few more shots when I get the prototype mounted in the chassis.

Happy Holidays!

Nice.

Hey Rob, do you have a source for the alcantara material ? I'd like to get enough in black to do the top of my euro-dash but can't find any around here. Is it THAT much different from UV-treated suede ?

Here's a couple shots of what I came up with for the defrosters. It's a clay model for the new defrost duct which feeds off of the stock fiero duct at the base of the windshield and re-directs the air flow to the two round top vents. It'll be another moulded fiberglass piece which will attach to the inside of the dash and then the heater duct, for the lower trio, will attach to it. The dash should install in one piece if I designed it right.

Saw this nice F40 replica on cragslist in Canada for sale a month or so ago - one of the most accurate i have seen yet. Think it sold for around 20K.
