Thanks for the Amazing dash...and making my dream a reality!
Once we even up on this one and you ship, I will need a second one with the same black, but with hot pink stitching on this one...for my wife's 88 GT, "Barbie".
Barbie is getting a VW TDI swapped into her and it will utilize the VW gauge cluster, which can be made to fit into the stock Fiero gauge housing, so hopefully not too much tweaking to fit in G1 gauge cluster!
Definitely one of the best looking custom Fiero dashes. Custom without looking overdone, under finished or hacked to fit. The styling and finish in line with contemporary upper level cars. I've enjoyed watching your progress on your projects in this thread.
Knowing the time and cost involved in designing, developing and constructing things like that, the price is very reasonable- more complete too. Between time and materials I'd likely spend way more than I'd be willing to admit to trying to construct one of similar quality. But I really don't have a place for an evolved design/build project like that right now especially on my daily driver. But I do want to design my own dash at some point.
If I weren't looking to buy a house shortly I'd be seriously considering getting one for my car. I hope you'll be building these for a while even if periodically. Unfortunately, It'd be towards next year at least before I could budget one.
The Fierostore stainless brake hoses were a little too short for '88 front with 12" brake upgrade & non-offset caliper adapters. To relieve the tension in hose at full turn the frame bracket was moved rearward about 1" and the upper A arm hose clamp was moved to the top of the A-arm.
