Started the Fierbird/trans am interior work today. Ripped out the "original" interior with my 6x9" speakers and all that. Tested the Trans Am interior but I think I will place the door skins first soo I can see where the dash should be. And yes. It´s not mush space when your orininal window is lower than standard...
PerKr Goo too the swedish fiero forum and I will give you the info there.
Not much too report. I have the second house that need too be done before the end of februari but after that I have much more time for my car. Sold my original dash with 6x9 speakers and also the original cluster this week. That money will be used for the double round headlight buckets from Fiero1Fan.
Just doodling around. I thought today that the Fiero hood-to-bumper slope always has a bit of a harsh angle change in the 355 noses, and frankly, even the factory noses seem like they're 'trying to get away with it'. So what if, instead of fighting to make the nose all pointy, you just gave up and gave it a nose from a muscle car that never really needs an angle change?
Hey Automoda, it looks like you and I have the same taste. I am in the middle of a rendering with the same "muscle car" idea. I have a few little differences but along the same lines. Good job, I'll try to post mine soon.
After a lot of work and helping information from Jscott I finally connected the TransAm/Firebird cluster to my car and-YES, It works.
Engine on but I get some ABS INOP and LOW TRAC is on. Not connected on the wires. Just take away the bulbs? Also, I could not find any indication for AJAR but there was a wire for that. FUEL GUAGE - OK SERVICE ENGINE - OK BRAKES - OK HIGH BEAM - OK FASTEN SEATBELT - OK GEN OUTPUT - ?VOLT METER? LOW OIL - NOT CONNECTED BUT LIGHTS UP? AJAR - ? COOLANT TEMP - HAVENT HAD THE CAR RUNNING FOR LONG IP ILLUMINATION - OK, + dimmer SKIP SHIFT - MOVED BULB FROM ABS INOP BUT NOT WIRED UP RH TURN SIGNAL - OK VSS - NEED PARTS. TACH - NEED MOD BUT MOVES LH TURN SIGNAL - OK OIL PRESSURE - OK
Still have work left but this was a big job with the wires. Aiming too have the car on the road in about 5 weeks... ------------------ Regards SHARKMAN 86 GT, 3.4 Camaro engine, choptop # 1 in Europe/Sweden

Very nice job. Your Fiero does have a distinctly European flavor to it. You must really stand out when you drive your car around. Most Eurpopean customized Fieros that we've seen here are usually very tastfully done. Perhaps it is because Europe was the place where sports cars originated.
