Nice job squeezing it in there. For a 3 hour trip, I would pad each end/corners probably with an open box with something soft inside like a bunched up towel. The only other concern is the center of the dash will see excess weight on bumps, so a soft support under it wouldn't be a bad idea either. Perhaps sliding the seat full forward and reclining the backrest fully rearward would help some.
Glad to see you still enjoying Fieros!
Good advice viperine!
This was just a "test" fitting, so for the real trip I plan on additional support for it.
Shouldn't be too difficult to do as the cabin and seat lend themselves to adding things easily for the support.
I am thinking a couple of pillows and maybe a blanket or 2.... heheheh, amazing how we truly do cherish and baby these things is it not?
Nice parts like this are hard to come by, so care will be taken to insure a successful completion of the journey to it's new home.
Yes, I still love the little things to death, and hope you are doing well with yours also.
Due to leaving the dash in the GT overnight, I have changed my plans on the delivery vehicle.
I am taking the HHR.
When I looked at the passenger seat tonight, I noticed the dash was starting to put a dent in it from a metal mounting bracket that for sure would have turned into a hole by the time I got there.
I could stuff the car with cushions, or whatever, but feel this I feel is the best option to insure the dash and my GT stay in the shape they are in now.
Guess I will have to wait for Peoria to actually have a Fiero at a Fiero event...… heheheh….
