    The washers equal 1/4 inch for the urethane and bring the windshield level with the body. I was going to use the Pep boys trim part number T3502C. as surface mount trim. I believe I saw a post where you mentioned it a few years back

    What do you recommend for side trim as well as a procedure for mounting the surface trim in conjunction with the outer door skin?

    thanks for your help!!

        OK thanks. So is the Maxima windshield an alternative to the Air Dynamics extended windshield, or are your A-pillars and header different dimensions (width/length) than Fiero?

          I'm not familiar with AD extended windshield. My body is a G28 and I believe the kit was made to use the maxima windshield. I don't think it is the same size as the fiero.

          I could measure the maxima windshield if you like.

          • The AD windshield built for us way back in mid 2000's was targeted at the Ferrari replicas. The Murci screens have a different shape pretty much across all of it from the Fiero. The Fiero tops are also cut off for the Murci replicas so the original Fiero windscreen shape is not used.

            Hope that helps.
            Cheers

            • Its a ton of work to get the OEM side view mirror to work with the G28 door skin.

              Wasn't happy with the way the body lines were from the door to the back of the car on the modified drivers side.

              Had to cut the mounting system for the door handle and lower it 1/4 or so and welded it back together so the handle and lock aligns with the existing holes in the door skin.

              After a bunch of this and that the door lines up better with the body.

              Im still not 100% on the OEM mirrors on the G28 but Will move on to the passenger side.

              Worse case scenario, I need 2 G28 door skins.

                          • when the driver rocker (OEM Replica) was installed I did it wrong. It was a while ago and not sure what I was thinking. Some how I cut to much of the Quarter panel off. To fix this .....

                            Increase qtr panel by grinding backside of qtr panel and adding about 2-3 inches of CSM

                            Then Grind down the front and CSM

                            Dura glass and Rage. Good news Im getting pretty good at laying the duraglass on smoothly Bad news, my mistake took a ton of time to fix

                            Now the rockers matches the distance to the ground from side to side.

                              • One thing I noticed on the passenger side it the length of the OEM Replica rocker panel...seemed long

                                So I cut of the finished edge in the front of the rocker

                                the cut off the amount needed, to get the rear of the rocker where I wanted it to be

                                Then Grind, CSM flip Grind CSM grind CSM

                                dont forget to acetone !
