1986 Fiero GT 6cyl [Work Log]
Ok, I have always wanted to purchase an old car, and give it new life. I decided on the Fiero, as I have always loved that car for some reason. There is a huge following for the car. This makes it easier to get parts, and a fantastic forum (Pennock's Fiero Forums) to ask questions, get help ect.
The intent is to completely re-design the dash, interior, & console. This will be the first part of the project, then I will move on to the exterior, prepping it for painting, as well as any mechanical work that needs done.
It is white now, but I am going to paint it red, and change the interior from the factory gray, to all red and black leather (Dash, seats, console, doors, pillars ect ect)
EDIT: I have changed my mind :) It is now going to be painted a Cobal Blue, with Blue and black seats, with Blue and black door panels. I have a nice custom Black leather shifter with Blue cross stitching on the way.
At the moment, I am trying to figure out where to mount the 10.2" touchscreen before I start ripping it apart. The touchscreen is sunlight readable, so there is no concern about having to have it in a "shaded area". I will probably put a "hood" over the top of the center console, to help protect glare somewhat, kind of the way the existing dash cluster is now.
Here is what I have to work with: (Pic is not the greatest, taken quickly with my iPhone)
What I have come up with so far, is to relocate the A/C vents in the center, and mount the screen above the HVAC controls. The console will then extend up to the same height as the dash gauge cluster.
If anyone else has any ideas or suggestions, please let me know! I could only find one other Fiero install here on the forums, and he simply used a single din motorized display in place of the radio.
