Now for my fully bolted in and installed 1994 camaro dash. Overall I'm happy I did it. Deffenitly looks better than the old dash and I got it to take up only the same amount of room.

Looks great ....
Are you going to use the Camaro center console too or just cut the Fiero's console skeleton down to use the base only?

Thankyou I can't find any decent pictures online but I want to try and use a dodge stratus R/T center console for the front and middle then make a sub enclosure for a deep 10" for the rear half and computer cover

Thank you but I'm looking at using a 2001, I haven't seen one for awhile but If I remember correctly it looks a bit different than that one as well as I'm going to be using a manual surround vs the auto

[I want to pull some ideas off of the center console at least, like running the sides down from the dash in the front and where the ash tray and 12V is. Here's the pictures I could find. Keep in mind this is still purely thought process right now, I haven't been able to do any measuring. I'll know for sure what center console stricter I'm going to use in a week or 2 because I'm going to search through the junkyard and find all my possibilities

Nope....there was a 2001 R/T coupe on E-Bay for sale.Just uploaded from there and posted here for you.
P.S. Don't forget that the Mitsubishi Eclipse from then has the same interior.

Can't believe I missed this thread! Love a good build thread with lots of pics!

I used to have an 01 Stratus R/T coupe and I loved that interior... exactly the same as a 3rd generation Eclipse for all intents and purposes...

Eclipse


Stratus


Although the Mitsu doesn't have the stupid 1.5 DIN radio opening that Chrysler put in everything...

My friends make fun of me for owning one, but I loved that car... I was sad when I had to trade it in because of financial issues, but kinda glad I got rid of it now though, as they turned out to be rust buckets...



I bought a B&M short shifter for it. It got hot in the summer... ever see Raiders of the Lost Ark? Remember when the bad guy picks up the pendant out of the fire in the bar? Yeah... B&M logo in the palm.

It completely eliminates a need for a key.

Would someone be able to help me find the wiring diagram for the 94 camaro dash specific? I know there are a few but I can't seem to find them anywhere. I'm going to do the small work while I'm stuck so figured I have a spare harness, let's get my dash "done" please and thank you

I can now say that the dash is done. Everything OEM is on and/or wired and working besides the defrost. All I have left is the dash pad. I will be doing a HVAC delete and putting some mechanical gauges in their place. I will be taking a ton of pictures and a full walk around video. Until than I will leave you all with a video or the mountain I climbed yesterday

Almost forgot to give thanks, I'm sorry I don't have all the names I've read quite a few threads on camaro dash swaps and want to thank everyone who did this and documented it for people that wanted to do the swap, everyone that has helped in the little question threads throughout this swap and big thank you to jscott for making the maps for wireing. Without this forum I would have never attempted something of this magnitude. I'm still going to keep this thread going for everything I do to the car, don't forget the dash may be done but I still have the center console and door panels to do thank you so much everyone!!!
