Sometimes when I run into a design decision & I'm not sure of a course of action to take I just stop and stare. I may glance at it each time I walk on by. This can continue for hours, days, weeks before I get an Ah Ha ! moment.

Ah Ha! ... as in you're going to continue to bring the edges of the wing down over that tape and creat more of a "wrap around"?

Yep...that's just what I was thinking that was missing...a slight wrap around will help blend the lines together.

HI all

Excellent eyes guys! That would give more detail, does that mean you'll add to the scoop itself, like enlongating it?

Thanx all,

Amida, any chance we could get you to make this style spoiler for the fastback as well? I could have a deposit for you if needed?

I can, but I need a GT to work on. The rear is totally different.

The tail will stay the same length/height. I will just be adding a slight wrap around to tie the deck line to the tail.

Not bad-not bad at all. You know that by pulling out the front you'll eventually will have to do the same for the top and behind the rear wheel (in order to clean-up the design). I like the bottom rear bumper modifications too and yes-you should close it. Just my. 02

Positioning jig for Maxima light pockets ensures a consistent fit everytime. One lesson that I've learned from the Fi355 nose project is to never again design around costly Ferrari parts if a more affordable alternative is available on Ebay .

The big blocky Fiero instrument panel was always an issue because it would never fit into an angled pod. Maybe by chopping off the corners I'll end up with a piece that I can work with.

It's only a design study at this point to see if a more affordable dash\console is possible. Maybe I should start a new thread on this "G-1" dash to see if anyone is interested. It's loosely modeled after the Lamborghini Gallardo; not a strict replica.

It's just a chipboard mockup for now just to get a visual on how I should make the layout using as many stock Fiero components as possible..instruments, switches etc. Keeping it simple = keeping it affordable. But designing & tooling a dash/console is a major huge project, I willl need some supporters to get this going for sure.

Thanks.

Can someone tell me if there is supposed to be a metal bracket under the black plastic console frame near the cigarett lighter? It feels really spongy to me for some reason, not very solid there. Thanks.

You have my attention. Looks like it will be a nice replacement. Will you have door panels to go with it?

If there is enough interest in the G-1 dash/console, then the door panels can be added in phase 2 .

Ran into a clearance issue between the instrument panel & the central stack. To create more clearance I narrowed down the stack by 1" which is the limit before the air vents contact each other.

Continuing the G1 dash model mockup. Determining position & fitting of a few components. It's all guess work, trial & error, trying to figuring out how this should best go together.

I'd be interested but I would have to buy another fiero as my current one already has your AMAZING FI40 dash setup and 355 console (still need door panels hint hint Rob . And I don't think my other half would go for that. But that sure is going to be sweet and great that people can just swap their current gauges into it - EASY.

Ya, but just for inspiration...the G1 dash plan will have it's differences since the objective is to work with the existing Fiero layout & components. It definitely is not intended to be an exact replica.

Continuing the G1 dash model mockup.

Positioning of a double din stereo receiver.

Will need to determine how much space is needed for various off-the-shelf toggle/rocker switches under the stereo. A switch panel is not required, but space will be made available if the user decides to install switches. Once the switch spacing is determined the HVAC controller will be raised into position.

The Pontiac G6 air vents can be installed with or with out the black bezel rings. (surface mounted with bezel, flush mounted without bezel )

The Audi TT shifter ring is just being used as a visual aid. The shifter panel will likely be left blank so that users can select their own choice of boot type/style.
