    I know this is probably impossible, but it never hurts to ask......

    HI all,

    Is it possible to raise the steering coloumn (sp?) in the fiero with an Amida dash? Would like to raise it up to an inch......But would it still look right??

    HAHAHA..........the "is it possible question". I'm sure the answer, "Anything is possible with money" will come up. ;D I haven't been under the dash to see but I don't think moving it an inch would be too hard.

    The first question is why do you want to raise it up an inch?

    I did some work on my column to make it fit two inches closer to the dash and as an added benefit it also increased the leg room a bit.

    HI all,

    Leg room is at a considerably low end of the spectrum when the wheel is placed where I like it in a fiero.... Although this question is more of a what if deal than any thing right now... The new steering wheel I want is 13.5 inches, whereas I believe the fiero gt wheel is 15inches? I would have to sit in funnywheels in order to know if your mod would be suitable.... Wish I could go for a drive in her, with you driving of course...!!

    edit: I prefer to drive any car with the wheel sitting straight up and down, with a fiero though I have to drive one notch up, :'( Personally, with an Amida dash, or any 355 dash, I think it will be impossible to raise it, and look right, without having to cut into the instrument pod.......

    10-4 on cutting into the instrument pod.

    My steering wheel is just under the pod by the thickness of the leather on the pod.
