I honestly can't feel any difference. It handled well before and handles well now. Are you coming down to Daytona for a little R&R?

Haven't posted any updates in awhile, so I figured it was time to see how the GT would fare against some extremely expensive rod's and customs. I entered it in the "Cars of Dreams" exotic car show in Palm Beach, fL this past weekend, and much to my surprise took a top award in pre-2000 American made performance cars. This type of show is almost impossible to win with a Fiero, but I must have done something right. Haha

I always liked that car I saw it in PA years ago it was cool seeing it a few weeks ago when I went to the Fiero meeting and it still looks perfect.

One of the weakest areas of my GT was the bulkhead carpet. It was stained, faded and fuzzed out. The other day I got so sick of looking at it, I called Mr. Mike and asked him if he had any suggestions. Little did I know that he supplied a simple sheet of vinyl/leather that matches the material in his seats. The cost was $13.00 + shipping, so I made the deal right then and there. Below is my handi-work and how it will look once in place.

First we start by gutting the interior and some general cleanup. I found a dime and a Fender thin guitar pick in the process.


First step was to layout the precision surgical instruments required to perform this job.


Next we begin trimming the nasty-ass black snot and hair pad to expose a glueable surface around the perimeter.

Now It's time to layout the new skin from Mr. Mike

Then I laid the prepped backer board face down on the new vinyl. The secret here was to leave the old carpet intact. It makes for a good cushion and masks irregularities showing through the thin vinyl.

A little secret sauce around the edges to adhere the vinyl.

After the corners were loosely tacked, I just had to put it in place to see how it's going to look.

Here is the finished product with all the wrinkles worked out.

I had totally forgot about one of my favorite mods to this GT, the sliding rear window in that second to last shot reminded me!

That looks much classier than the fuzzy carpet.

I just joined, as I'm hoping to pick up a Fiero for a build project, and this thread was the first I read.
This noobs' mind is melted. Read all 17 pages. So much information. So much win. Such a nice car.
Now I want to go out and buy a Fiero RIGHT NOW. Which is a problem, as it's 12:40 AM and I lack the funds anyway. Soon hopefully.
Ski, your build is an inspiration and just all around amazing.

I got an idea today to dress up the under-hood area a little. If you've read this build thread you probably know that this car has a removable rear window and a pair of metal strips to hold it whilst in stow. They were painted black and peeling quite badly, so I decided to strip the paint off them and polish the bare aluminum to a high lustre. The results were so pleasing I believe I'll go one step further and have them nickel plated.

I am Quite new to these wonderful machines so this may be a stupid question but do all of the real windows come out or just the fastback? I didn't even know they were removable.

Haru,

None of the Fieros came with removable rear windows. This is a custom job that you can read about in this build thread.

Congrats on the Best of class (modified) at Daytona. That makes me proud. I always wondered how it would do at that show. I really like your touch on the glass supports. Keep up the great work!

Car is still looking incridable! I too believe that this was my first "build thread" that I really got into. Even before becoming a member. This Fiero is such an aspiration for so many of us. Thank you for the updates. I still follow.

rpro... Try a little Mothers Aluminum polish on the glass supports before nickle plating them. They will become mirrors with enough patience and muscle. I use a polisher to do all of my aluminum. I love the stuff. Keep up the great work.

Tony

How is it applied? By hand, or buy drill?

By hand using a slightly dampened micro fiber cloth. Pressure must be applied to get appreciable results.

Vote for the skimobile. To my knowledge this is the very first time this car has competed for the fiero store calendar. Below is the image they selected.

I used this too. Works great. Even on (notchback) sail windows. I've had great results on glass as well. (may follow up with Mother's water spot remover to get the rest)

Awesome! Winning in open classes like that are always sweet. It shows the car is respected beyond the Fiero circles.

Yes...what did it take to fix the steering wobble? Also, what did you do to work out the wrinkles in your backerboard project? I am getting close to doing the same to mine.

@fierogt28. I do concours level auto detailing for a couple exotic car dealerships in Vero Beach. A mobile mechanic friend of mine said he's done dozens of Saginaw steering columns over the years. I was hoping he would do mine but he was too busy. What he did do however was loan me the the pin plate compresser for a few days, so I just got into it on my own, using the instruction guide found in the ogre's cave.... it was fairly simple to re-tighten the four bolts inside the column. Three of them are easy to access, but the fourth one is buried way the heck down deep.

@johnnyrottin. I simply restretched the vinyl and glued/stapled it down better. I shouldn't have even posted that first picture until it was completed. I'll try to get a fresh picture that shows it nice and smooth. If you're about to do this, I strongly urge you to apply your stretching efforts between the top and bottom first. The sides are not so important since they are hidden by the B-Pillars.
