Not much work on the dash itself but still some progress...!
Finally I got a response and a quote from a seller of these gauges:

I hope I can order a set within a few days!
Trying to line up the parts and ideas for the ventpods mockup....

I am still looking for 2 audi TT vents...hard to find, even around here...
Now I've also been looking quite a long time for a nice "recovering" of the reused stock main dash. A molded shiny CF cover would be cool but any shiny dash would reflect too much in the windshield. So I went looking for some other materials and finally got this from a local car upholstery shop today:

I got enough of the black vinyl stuff to play with I wasnt too sure when I got it but it looks like it will match well with the other materials in the end...

That car would be one of the few IMHO that would look good with a quality chop top. Someone please photoshop that for me, cuz it'd look sweet!!!

Thanks for the effort but pleazz....no choptop for me... In a way I already did a visual chop by making "lower sitting" bodypanels so proportional the upper section has gotten smaller...oh well ...anyway:
To me right now my fiero has the right dimensions so I will keep it that way.

I like "original" fastback chops the best....Sharkman's from sweden is a good example!

I'm torn. The chop makes the back end look really big, especially the wheels and tires...But form the back wheel forward it looks sweet!

This is the weather nowadays....

Even basic work isnt too much fun right now...but still a few ideas are getting shape right now...

A bit of recycling...I might be able to reuse the mirror adjuster thingie:

Ow great,...my midconsole is starting to look like a PS2 controller right now! ...... groovy

Getting to shape the vent housing....

first mockup of some rough parts:

thinking in layers..pfff..and thinking of different materials for the final parts...hmmm

brrr

Looking good! I do have a question. Are you taking molds off the MDF or are you covering it with a filler and painting? And if you are, are you worried about it cracking?
