Does anyone have a set of dash speaker covers? Mine were faded and I tried to paint them with fabric spray paint and they did not come out so good.

I know that Rodney sells replacement fabric but I would be concerned about being able to recover them.

If anyone has a good set to sell, please let me know.

Thanks

To be honest, they are VERY easy to recover with contact cement and new fabric.....but you can also take off the fabric, clean off the old adhesive, and paint them to match your interior like I did:

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 !

What color do you need? I have re-finished pairs available if interested.

I need charcoal gray to match the dash in an 85 GT. What do you mean by "refinished"?

If you have some, please email photos to gregorym@frenchcolor.com

Thanks

IMSA GT, what color paint did you use to match the gray dash? That looks fantastic and even more updated. I will probably do that with mine also, fabric can be a pain to work with.

My interior color is custom to match the exterior of my car. The dash is actually white.

Back to the topic, I am seeking a set of dash speaker covers.

Preferrably in charcoal gray to match the dash.

Thanks

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.

I will get pictures up in a few days.
