Found this. It is the first real seal mfg to really make something for a Fiero.

Hold more come if we buy from them?

That wouldn't be the dew wipe seal. Looks like it's the 2 felt pads that cushion the window as it travels up and down.

The Jegs site shows dew wipes.

No matter what if Fieros show support here they will show interest. That is more than we have gotten in the past.

The build it and they will come mentality only works on baseball fields.

Show demand for a part and they will make more is how this works in this economic age.

That is likely the manufacturer where the Fiero Store is getting them from.

Look at this and read the specs. The box is 45.6 “ in depth. Also the photo shows dew strips and states outside.

These are the dims on the box for shipping so I don’t think they are the pads.

The point is still if we buy from Repopulate you may get more parts offered that you complain no one will make.

Might want to get more fact before you dismiss something.

I wasn't dissing you. I read the link you posted that said 2 pieces outer felt with no image available. I've never heard the dew wipes called felt pieces since they're made of metal and rubber. Just going on what you posted.

So, now, I went to the gallery and looked at the images, they describe the dew wipes as felt kits. Almost all contain 8 pieces. I didn't review all 1067 items they list in their gallery, though.

I agree, if Fiero item purchases are made, maybe they will produce more stuff. Door and window seals, trunk seals, sunroof or maybe even some T-top seals and the decklid recall strips.

Edit: I looked at your second link and those are dew wipes, but I don't see the metal piece at the front that the mirror studs go through. That's a question that should be asked before ordering. Would we salvage those from our old dew wipes and rivet them to the new ones? That's doable.

Look my point is a mfg is making a part. No matter the part the buyer needs to do their due diligence of what they are buying.,

How a simple post of a mfg showing interest in the Fiero turns into a major debate over something totally not intended.

No wonder so few post here anymore.

The repops are not exact repros of the Fiero outer dew wipes are not new and have been around for quite some time. If you look at the pictures they are missing the metal bracket end pieces.

I understand people's confusion, because the link in the opening post makes it look like it is for the felts.

I don't think it's necessary to browbeat them for responding. But yes, more aftermarket is always good. I'll often buy stuff to have on-hand, because I'll most likely need it someday and it gets a few dollars to the companies that make them, a win-win for all of us.

People were just confused - including me.

There's nothing worse than ordering a part that "sounds" correct without a picture of actual item, then getting it and finding it's completely wrong.

So True! Just this morning one of my brothers told me of ordering a remote control airplane on Facebook Marketplace though the ad had a picture showing a fairly good sized plane against a background. Took nearly 2 months for him to finally get it, they said due to heavy demand. When he did, it was a tiny little diecast metal 747 that was only about 3 inches long. No way it could ever be remote control. The seller wouldn't respond. $$$ lost.

Someone should post a picture of the product there.
They're probably wondering why "we didn't get many orders for this item".

Pricing wouldn't hurt either. Maybe they don't even sell retail?

If you have a need or interest e mail or call and stop speculating and complaining.

It is little wonder so little gets reproduced for our cars. If you act like this before the sale what will it be later.

Not trying to ruff up anyone but do you guys really read what you post some times.

If you have no need or no interest move on. The harsh reality is the Fiero is not money making model for most mfg and the more difficult you are the less likely anyone will try.

It is like this who complain about the Fiero Store. If you think you can do better than why are you not doing it.

Auto parts are a tough and competitive market. It is very expensive to tool up and make most parts.

We are lucky we have some parts as many cars have nothing from the 80’s.

Just for the record, our felt window guides are not made by Repops.

Our dew wipes and window guides are direct fit and made exclusively for us.
