Hi Guys,

I recently purchased a set of end caps to repair/conceal the damage below the side vents. The parts look pretty good, except.....

Although they have cut-outs for the side window defogger vents, they have NO provision for the front trunk release lever! When I called I was told that was just the way they come. They cannot be installed on the driver's side unless you modify them, so beware if you expect them to fit right out of the box.

On the other hand, they are pretty nice other than that one issue. I also discovered they have caps to go over the center shift console....might just beat trying to fix the warpage with glue.

It isnt hard to repair the corners with epoxy and repaint with grey model paint (Tiamia grey I think) There is a thread some where here that has a step by step on it. looks a lot better ( in my opinion ) than the caps.

No, there is no adjustment needed to the Fiero Store ones... here's a pic with my dash in the 88:





They do have to be painted or leave them black as I did and paint the rest of the dash.... there is a slight line down the inside corner of the dash where the dash cap rests on the dash, it's hard to see in the first picture because of the flash. But that's a minor detail if you don't have a perfect dash!!
