how so? people remove door panels all the time without damaging paint and bodywork.. shaving it actually makes it easier to remove the panel. ive removed mine plenty of times, never had any damage from the proccess.

The outer door skin, or the interior door panel? Aren't there body mounting points for the panel under the trim strip?

The interior parts from Fie Ro have arrived at Archie's. Once again thanks Fie Ro.

Now lets talk about color. Could someone please photo shop my car in this color, one with the black trim and one with trim painted same color as the car.





Thanks

I think it was the pictures that made it look a bit off. In this picture it looks GOOD, just a lil fuzzy.

they will be stock and black for now, but I'm looking at some after market ones with side markers.
I just think it would be a good idea to get a feel for the car b4 I choose. Archie has the plans for the final mods and now It's time to focus on the interior and brakes .

what do you think about the color?

color is cool, I actualy thought about using the same color, then I found out that fiero meant "pride". Then I realized orange is considered to be the official gay color, so I put two and two together and came up with "gay pride" so now I couldn't possibly use that color and not feel wierd driving my car. But the color still looks great.

Don't let that GAY Pride thing go to your head, an arancio borealis Lamborghini color looks awesome on a fiero, especially a widebody.

Troy,

Went to a really nice club tonight here in Orlando and there was an orange Gallardo roadster parked out front (and a black one too), damnnnnnnnn was that thing hot !!.

The color definatly pops. I couldn't take my eyes off of it, and there were tons of gorgeous women there, but my attention was transfixed on the car.
