I gotta give The Fiero Store some credit in finally reproducing this long discontinued item. My OCD kicks in every time I sit in my car and see everything clean and legible then have to look at my worn out old faded mirror switch.

I'm going to order one next payday on September 1st.

I am shocked there was a large enough consumer base to justify the likely startup costs to reproduce this. Good deal.

It's the same as 3rd gen F body. If so. It's a fairly good market.

I know. I've been looking for almost 2 years now and the cheapest NOS I could find was almost $80!

I've been looking for a black one with white lettering. I hope the lettering on this one lasts. On the plate that goes over this, the TFS one arrived with the lettering almost worn off.

IMO if one thing even as small as window switch lettering doesn't match it stands out like a turd in a punch bowl.

How much harder is it to find the all black controls and switches for the 84's? My second Fiero was an 84 SE and when I upgraded to a newer radio (with grey buttons) I swapped everything else to grey. This was the early 90's when those parts were easier to find locally.

Yes, the different greys on the defrost vs trunk and dimmer switches really bothers me.

The topic of '84 black switches comes up periodically and locating good replacements are a headache. If I could possibly make a rough assumption it's likely because the black-only 84 switches eventually dwindled in supply compared to the later gray and also 3rd gen F-body gray switches. Since the parts are mostly cosmetic I'd surmise eventually the gray replacements simply superseded any of the '84-specific black switches. If you're someone that owns something like an Indy Pace Car replica you want the correct switches.
