Ok, Malcom2073 contaced me on Yahoo, and he thinks he has most of the code done already, as he has an 87' Camaro with OBDI. WooHoo! This would be fantastic. I will post when I know more.
On another note, not much of an update, other than what is to be done, not what has been done
Well, after working on this custom center console, I got to thinking, the dash is still going to look very stock in comparison.
I figure if I am covering the original instrument cluster with the fiberglass dash cover, and doing some fabrication, I may as well swap out the instrument cluster entirely So I started looking around, and I just purchased a digital dash out of a Cavalier Z-24. The Z-24 dash is still a bit dated, compared to modern cars, but is an easy swap, and I think will look better than the stock cluster at least It is a pretty easy swap, as it uses all the same sensors as the Fiero, and is a wire-to-wire swap for the most part.
My plan is to remove the bezels and such from the digital dash, and put a smoked Plexiglas cover over the whole thing. I will have some additional "Dummy lights" along the top of the dash showing when the CarPC has power, fog lights are on, and a couple other indicators. I also have a back up sensor system that I will put behind the glass as well, thats what you see above the gauges in the photo below. It shows the distance to objects behind the car when backing up.
This is a quick Photoshop concept on how I am picturing it looking.
I am also putting a blue gel (The plastic sheets they put on stage lights to change colors of lighting colors on a stage) over the gauges, to make the dash more blue instead of the existing teal.
I still have a lot of fabrication work to do, but It is all starting to come together as to how it will all be done now.
