I like this one as well as the posted ones. It is from the same supplier so the quality is quite nice.

The Piranha dash was a modified 3000GT dash with modified Firebird door panels. The Piranha nose was a modified 93-97 Firebird Formula nose.

Here's the nose in question:

Modifies the grill area and side marker lights:


The fender lines are identical.

I've always loved the fiero dash. It is unlike any other car's. I like that it sort of looks like a small plane cockpit. The dash pics posted from Amida's are very nice, but I wouldn't have a fiero without its dash exactly the way it is already.

These dashes are awesome and appear to be high quality, but the problem is that most Fiero owners are not willing to spend that much. Some are willing obviously, but I wish anyone luck whose business model is selling to Fiero owners.

Well, they are hand made, and made to order, not stocked. It helps to not have tens of thousands of dollars invested in stock that people won't buy. Making one-off for yourself before you start selling them, to get things right, and pull a mold from, helps keep costs and potential losses down, too.

And I think Rob makes parts for more than just the Fiero community as well. My understanding was he was making similar parts for the kit car community long before he started making them for the closer to stock Fieros.
