Thank you for posting a picture of your surgery. It was clearly necessary for everyone to see this.

If I am running a bit behind on a delivery due to having a stomach flu, I will post pictures of the resulting diarrhea for everyone to see LOL!

My supplier for casting resin is not going to be able to ship out my order until January because of such a large quantity.
So the sale in "The Mall" will not go on until January now.The only good news is that I got enough threaded inserts and cap screws.

Shifter section of skeleton cut and ready for the mold.


Shifter section of skeleton mold poured.


Center section of skeleton cut and ready for the mold.


Try to get some more of the skeleton poured later and ready for the resin.
I know the middle pic of the poured mold came out blurry as hell.

I just noticed you had me on the list to purchase, while I find it very interesting to watch the progress of a product that has been asked for many times over I am doing a full interior swap. I may consider purchase at a later date for one of the other cars but not in near future..
Great work by the way please keep posted on progress.. Will continue to follow this thread.

The list was really letting me know how many people were interested in this product.Because if enough people were not interested I was not
going to be making the Center Console Skeletons.Thank You for the compliment on the work so far.I will be making shifter console plates next with or without the ashtrays and the power window/mirror switches intergrated into the shift console plate.This way there will be no need for the lower shift console switch plate at all.

Were you able to get that out of the rubber? Looks like it should have been a 2 piece mold. Set in clay first. Just curious...

Project is gonna have to go o hold for a little while.I got Pneumonia again....And I am probably going to be admitted to the hospital to get a lung puncture done again to drain my lungs so it doesn't collapse again.Will resume at the beginning of the year.I am going to bring some to
the Daytona 2014 show to see if there is any interest.

Yes I was able to get it out of the mold.This is not the regular silicone rubber that you can only use once.
This product can be heated and poured to mold a item and then you can melt it down again and again to make a mold as many times as
possible.Plus the casting resin I can get in a multitude of different colors.

I have Systemic Scleroderma with lung involvement.
With Scleroderma your skin tightens soo much that it bends your fingers to a position to where you can't use them.


These pics are from before my hand surgery.I am actually able to use my right hand now,as before I couldn't hardly use it at all.
Thank You again for the kind words and support and Merry Christmas to you too.

Glad to hear you are attending the Daytona Show! The center console skeleton will most certainly be of interest to everyone there! I think we need to get you set up with your own tent / booth to: show it off in, sell, & answer questions ect. I can't wait to see it!

Every time I get out of breath because of my condition and have to stop and hook up to my Oxygen concentrator so I don't collapse on the floor and end up in the hospital again.Sorry it has taken soo long but parts are being cast as I speak.Thank You.

I believe that's the same thing Bill Nighy has, isn't it?

I'd love to get a new skeleton myself, possibly after I can find the same colored interior parts to glue on & swap everything in an afternoon.

I wanted to first say, after going through the thread, I'm glad things didn't turn out worse. I wish you the best for your health.

Also wanted to add myself to the 'interested' list. Especially if there's a double-din version. (If not, no big deal!)

The double DIN version is the same.The metal tab behind the stereo shown here will be removable in order to make your aftermarket stereo flush with the faceplate.

I'm OK .....I can actually use my right hand now.My Doctor told me last week that I am in remission and doing the best since I have been seeing him.So hopefully I will be getting off the Chemo soon.So April will mark the 6 years I have had this disease.I was told in 2008 that I have 3 to 5 years max to live so I feel really lucky to still be here.I wanted to make it to the Daytona show this year but it is very hard to get any help from anybody around here.Now my goal is to have some of these done ASAP,hopefully this April I will be able to get the thread in
"The Mall" for these.

Thank You for the kind words Fierobug.
I swear that I need to have these going into "The Mall" this
Spring/Summer time to fill the needs of the people that are interested in this item.I am also making a shifter plate with no ashtrays and the power window/mirror switches incorporated into the shift plate without using the lower plate and also the cigarette lighter plate.....Plus more parts to come afterwards this year hopefully.

I would suggest selling them with no cut outs for the ashtrays, instead just provide a paper template. I'm sure many would like ditch them, besides, only fidiots smoke these days anyway. Good luck with the venture.

I am going to be trying a new brand of resin for making the skeleton's soon.So I was thinking about the whole console skeleton.It seems that
the only area that breaks is where the screws attach the stereo,A/C and faceplate plus the shifter plate.The sides of the console skeleton next
to the tunnel hardly ever break or get stress cracks.So I am contemplating whether or not the sides even should be made or not.If the sides
don't need to be manufactured and the old sides just reused for the new console skeleton.The price of the skeleton can be reduced being that I won't be using as much resin to make this item.They will still be made with the threaded brass inserts to keep the plastic from cross threading and eventually breaking.Plus will come with allen head machine screws for the shift plate,face plate,stereo and the A/C controls.

Please let me know,because if I don't need to make the sides it will knock the sell price down to $75.00 Thank You.

I just casted a smaller part to test a new brand of resin.The power window/mirror switch plate.Casted in tan to show the detail better.

The original


And the copy cast in tan.Just need to be sanded and cleaned up now.

Just a friendly bump for this project that seems is taking me way too long to accomplish.I started in July of last year and had no idea that it would take this long.But trial and error with different manufacturers of the right silicone and casting resin has come to a end.Now I have found the right casting resin that will withstand the force of weight on top of it from the center console without shattering.Plus allowing the threaded inserts to be counter sunk into the plastic,therefore no shattering of the screw holes.

So to all the people that were interested in this very much needed Fiero product that no vendor is currently making.Thank You for your patience and these will be out in "The Mall" soon.I go back to my doctor in 2 weeks,so hopefully no lung biopsy surgery will be needed this time.

Maybe you could write a how-to thread showing us how to copy parts like you are doing. It has been a while since I looked at this thread and maybe all the info is here but if not, it would make a good thread by itself and would be nice to have other people chime in with all the tips and tricks.

Just a thought for giving you something you might be able to work on while you can't really get "hands on" out in the garage for a while.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Got some resin cast last night.The new resin came out much better than the old brand I was using.Just needs to be sanded and cleaned up a bit.Got rid of the top grooves to make the skeleton stronger than the original one.


Bottom of the original skeleton piece.

Bottom of the new casted of skeleton piece.

Top of the original skeleton piece.

Top of the new casted part of the skeleton.

You can see from the new casted part that the rear tabs by the ECM are made about 2 to 3 times thicker than the original to prevent from cracking and the tabs breaking off.








I will have some more pics up as soon as this weekend for some new casted skeleton parts.

Please let me know if you think that these came out good enough to start mass producing.
Before I spend a lot of money on casting supplies.Thank You very much for taking a look at this project for a very much needed Fiero product that is not currently in production by any person or company that I know of.
