I haven't spent any amount of time on this site in a couple of years - just haven't had the time and my Fiero is on the back-burner.

I would like to thank you - reading this thread has kept me EXTREMELY entertained for the past 2 + hours. The Quality of your work and your tastes are amazing. I only wish I had a fraction the time to invest in my Fiero that have invested in yours. You are a true insperation and I intend to continue following your build.

I have one question about your sub-enclosure though. I know with typical enclosures I have delt with they are built out of 3/4" MDF. I looked into building a custom fiberglass enclosure for under the dash of my Fiero and it was suggested to me that I build it up to a thickness of 3/4" as well. Have you done this with your enclosure? Also, how do you mount the decorative ring around your sub?

But really truly amazing work! Keep it up!

I wonder if I could use that to find the mysterious "Scot Tilden" interior. I'm sure there had to be a website in the past showing the built progress.
Probably will take a few hours.

ok I have started a new interior project, sort of...it is behind the seats, no it is further back
I did some enginebay cleanup before winter and some painting in the trunk area. Then I started to think why I put so much time in a good looking engine(bay) while there was a simple/dirty trunk in front of it...

enter mission: pimp my trunk
A predecessor may be this trunk cover I had several years ago


Change that and add 4 side panels. And they must be removable. And blend with the interior style.etc.

The basic idea is a base frame that sits on the sides of the lower trunk part. Doesnt matter if the trunk is cut or stock...add a lower trunkcover that fits in the frame. front/rear panels that slot in the frame. and side panels that slot in the frame and between the front/rear panels. A very simple drawing:

Frame setup

I will be using 4mm MDF for the large surfaces, a few wooden profiles, fiberglass and resin for sealing and strengthening where needed....and later on some other detailing stuff..! hehe

ALL I CAN SAY ABOUT THIS GTR FIERO IS

SA----WEET.

You do very clean work. I love the bodies new look. I love the interior though I have to get used to the hummer dash on the passenger side. "Clean" center consul.

Dude! Awesome! Bad A$$! Those were the first thoughts I had when seeing this build. It makes me want to start on the appearance of mine instead of the performance. I hope that when I get my swap done that I'll have the money to start on the body and interior. All should be inspired by the build and design of your car!

Here are some update pix, I finished some of the trunk parts:


Modified Phillips photoframe, it will be my showcase display !

Left piece almost finished, after this by accident I dropped a sharp object on it and will have to upholster it again now, and also add another tweak I almost forgot

I bought Dietmar's headliner...great quality !

After a lot of work and burned fingers it looks like this:

I must have missed it, but can you describe in a little detail how you get the vinyl to bend so tight around all of the radius's and still hold its shape? It looks so professional and tight. I have tried to do this before and I know how hard it is to do that, youmust have some trick for that, lol. Ohhh and its looking great and cant wait for the products to hit the "for sale"

This has to be one of the most amazing builds I have ever seen. Your attention to detail is only countered by your ability to do what seems to be every aspect of every automotive field to (I dare say) perfection. I cannot wait to see the finished product! How about a video of how you go about doing a mold from start to finish?
