Hi everyone! I have an 87 gt that I am restoring and I have one tinted quarter window from the Fiero Warehouse. I was hoping to find a matching one for the other side. Does anyone know if another place makes the same ones that were being made there? Thanks!
I don't know if Chris's will match what you already have, but I'll have to agree to check out ChrisCookDesigns@yahoo.com After purchasing aftermarket windows that came from two other vendors and returning them because they were junk, I went with Chris. Good quality quarter windows and great person to deal with.
Don't use silicon to glue gtfiero ones. It will peel the inner black paint.
If the maker didn't use the right ink to print the black, anything applied to the backside can peel the black. They MUST be printed with an acrylic ink. There are other inks and paints like lacquer, that will bond to the acrylic sheeting, but it has a destructive effect on the sheeting. I printed acrylics for over 30 years and also had my own sign company, so I do speak from experience.
Email Paul McKibben at FieroSails.com or Chris Cook and ask them about the correct coating. They are both very approachable.

I have serious issues with the ken hines ones available on ebay. Don't cheap out, you would not believe how frustrating having your door windows catch and rip off your 1/4 windows really is, until you've witnessed it first hand. Then drive home without a 1/4 window.
I got a pair of Chris Cook's windows. The quality and service were excellent. However, I had the installed at a professional shop during a repair and there is a pale greenish discoloration behind both windows. Is this the paint issue that was discussed earlier or something else?
t may be the mixture of the black ink. I bought a set of Chris's windows for my brother's car, after talking with Chris personally to find out how they were made. The colors look normal. Sometimes black is made with traces of other colors and they may show up at certain angles and lighting.
