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.
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.
I re-used the original grille for the front window vent on the PISA dash. I cut off all the mounting tabs, sandblasted the old paint off, then I put on a fresh coat of black paint to match the rest of the interior. An epoxy based adhesive was used to attach the grille to the […]
The upholstery on the centre console/armrest is now complete. The openings for the shifter and the window switches were created.
When I received the interior pieces back, some of the holes I cut out were covered by the leatherette installation.

The interior pieces came back from upholstery, and all I can say is WOW. I can’t wait to get these installed! The pictures don’t do them justice.

This was one of the easier installs I have done over the past year – no fabrication was required. This is the Fiero Store fiberglass headliner. I acquired this almost 4 years ago and it’s been sitting in my basement waiting to be installed. All the holes are pre-marked, so it was just a matter […]
