He's right, I did the same thing and it looks great as well. I tried the fabric thing and because I didn't spray enough glue on the grill....the fabric became loose and made the most annoying sound while the music was playing...LESS IS MORE !

I am referring to using Rodney's Dickman's replacement cloth covers. I have three "black", one tan/brown, and one camel ('88) available at present. Not sure about "charcoal" difference to black for the 85s. I know the gray interiors are lighter for the 84-86 than 87-88s. I have done four of my own Fieros (3x 88s, 1x 87) in black with no noticeable difference in color. Three are show cars with two x 10+years and one x 5+ years since the replacement. The fourth daily driver is going on 12+ years and needs to be changed again as it is starting to fade from sitting outside.
By "re-finished" I mean the old grilled back plate has been stripped of the old faded cloth cover, inspected for missing grill pieces or hold down legs, then new Rodney's replacement cloth applied using 3M spray mounting adhesive.
