Hello all, I have been looking for a rear window american flag graphic but have had no luck finding one that is sized for the fiero rear window. I am looking for the flowing looking flag. If anyone has any direction were I should look that would be appreciated.

thanks
Sam

Great idea. I'd look for one sized for a 1990's light Dodge pickup. Still a bit too big, but it can be scaled. Actually, the shops that do this should have no problem fitting one to the Fiero.

I put a vinyl decal American Flag on my car about a year ago. I REALLY like the look. I ordered mine just a tiny bit too short, and had to patch it together a little bit on the left hand side as you can see in the photo below.


The Fiero rear window is 56 inches wide, and 13 inches tall, and the entire top is curved from end to end. You will not going to find the exact size & shape, and you are going to have to trim it to fit.



Here is a link to a decal on Amazon , in the size needed (18" x 58"). I put brown paper on the back window, and cut it to the exact shape and size. It took some playing around, and trimming / adding a bit to the end where I cut off to much ect. When I got the template right, and all patched up, I used it to cut out another piece of brown paper, and made sure that the template was the shape and size I needed.

Although the image looks solid from the outside, I can see clearly in my rear view mirror. The only problem happens when it rains, and the water clings to the window in each of the tiny little holes in the vinyl. It makes it difficult to see out the window.

Here is what it looks like on my car. It does not look as pixelated in person. It pixelated like that when I reduced it in quality and image size to be able to post it here on the forum.



Here is a better shot at night that does not show the pixelation seen in the above photo:

That is very cool and exactly the look I was thinking of. How was the quality of the graphic? If there was enough interest I wonder if we could get custom fitting sized for the rear window of the Fiero. thanks for posting

It has been on my car around 2 years now, and no problems as of yet. I wish they made one for the inside of the window to be honest, but I have been unable to find one.

I do not think there is a chance of custom ones for out cars. They do not make sizes specifically for individual vehicles that I have found. They just come in basic sizes, that have to be customized by the purchaser / installer to fit whatever vehicle. Pretty much the same as window tint.
