I finished the installation of the Fiero sub woofers, and powered up the SST radio for a test run. I still have a wiring mess to hide, …but it sounded great!
The new SST radio comes with a flush mounting kit. This allows the controller to be mounted “properly” in the dash – rather than using the standard bracket. In order to mount it in the Fiero, …like everything else, …fabrication needs to be done. I used 16 gauge steel to create a mounting plate.
My new audio system arrived in the mail the other day. It is called the Secret Audio SST – “Stealth Sound Technology”. In other words it is a radio system designed for vehicles without a standard radio/deck DIN size.
I need to install the interior door panels, …and finish installing the sound system, …but aside from those two elements, the interior is done.
After 2 years, the seats are back in the Fiero. I can actually sit in the car now. In the pic I have a pair of old seat covers on them. I want to keep them protected for the remaining installations.
I installed the Rodney Dickman Euro “Ferrari” shifter to the 4-speed shifter assembly.
Big day. After 7 months of hard work, the dash is finally back in. I still need to add the components – such as the extra gauges and the MP3 player. But it is satisfying to see this interior come together. FINALLY.
Since the original tabs were broken on the speaker covers, I came up with a new way of attaching them to the interior “A” pillar piece. Home Depot sells these nylon based nuts and bolts. With a black coat of paint, they fit right in.
Installation of the carpet is complete. I also installed the back firewall cover.
Today I began the installation of the Fiero Store carpet I purchased over 4.5 years ago. It’s over-sized, so I need to trim down the edges. Exciting!
