    Start a worklog thread and post a picture of the dash. Im sure we all have ideas on how it can be done. Maybe have it slide up out of the dash?

    Where to put the screen.....

    I have a 10" sunlight readable screen, and when I held it in place above the A/C vents, it obstructs the drivers view.


    I am going to have to do a complete re-design of the center console, as well as the dash. The way things are laid out, makes it hard. My car does not have the optional gauges on top of the console in the below picture, so that gives me some room to work. If I relocate the A/C vents, that will give enough room above the the A/C controls to put the screen, and then extend the console to the height of the optional gauge cluster in the pic and enclose it all in. (The yellow frame in the pic is close to scale for the size and possible location of the screen) I would have liked to moved the A/C vents vertically to either side of the screen, but there is no room on the left where the dash cluster is It would look freaky to have them on top of the screen, as that is just too high....

    I am still going in circles trying to come up with the solution before I start ripping everything apart I am open to any and all suggestions here

    well you can put both ac vents vertical on the right side of the console that way it'll match with the vents on the driver side in the pic.

    Maybe find that dash piece and mold it into the side of console... if its seprate.
    Eventually...

    I've always liked Fiero's. Wanted to find the very rare blue '88 GT. Only problem I've heard with the Fieros was the 84 4 cyl, the oil liked to catch on fire, but I think that was fixed for 85-88, and the 6cyl had no such problem.

    Good luck with the restore, John. Make sure to post pics!

    John.... Before you say a word... You may want to check this article out first This goes for anyone else for that matter that thinks the Fiero is an unsafe car. Put it this way, the Fiero and the Volvo DL tied for first place for the safest small car.

    I have always wanted to try my hand at restoring a car, and for some strange reason I have always been drawn to this car. I picked it up dirt cheap, and have a couple grand set aside to start fixing it up.

    Mechanically it is in great shape. runs like a top, and has a nice deep rumble. It's only a 6cyl, but sounds like a friggin V8 in a camaro or corvette with the way the dual exhaust is tuned.

    Now the fun lies in where to put my 10" touchscreen! I am probably gonna have to do some serious fabricating to the dash and center console to get it the way I want.

    So at the upcoming meets, hopefully you will all see it going from the POS that it currently is, into a pretty sweet little ride.

    Pontiac???? looks like someone is trying to rebuilding K.I.T.T.

    Not to hijack this thread (Any further at least ) I started a work log here.

    Looks like this will be the car I have owned for the shortest amount of time A guy in Port St. Lucie is selling 2 Fiero's. (He refuses to sell one at a time for some reason) I want the 86 GT, and found someone else from Sarasota who wants the 88GT, so we are going to split the cost in half and both get what we want

    So if anyone is interested, I will have a 85' 6cyl Fiero for sale here pretty soon hahah

    I personally like the body style on the GT's better. Some call me crazy, as the "Notchies" as they are called have a big following.

    Any further posts on this topic should be done over in the work log thread.

    I got to thinking, (dangerous I know!) After I am on the Fiero forums for a while, and get to know some of them, I was gonna mention the Florida Meets to them.

    I first want to get the PC installed and my Fiero on the road at least before I do. It could bring out some extra people to the meets There are a lot of Fiero forum members in Florida, around 300 or so.

    I am going but I am not sure. Turns out I have a major ticket issue from Monroe County. If I get pulled over, I go to jail. I didn't find out till a week ago. I am going to try to take care of it in the middle of June. If I do fix this, then I am going.
