    if you look close this is a complete surround that gives 7" curve in the middle ( meaning it is 7" farther out than the fiero windshield ) an the windshield cost $200.00 from acme glass
    IRK Are these photos from Mike Hudson? (MadMike) up in New England. If so, I think he sent me these several years back as well. It has a Chrysler windshield but the bottom is cut out for the wiper assembly making it necessary to use the related wipers and add a slight lip to the rear of your hood to make it work.
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

      Did I just over look it or did someone say what this windshield was used in?

          The windshield glass is from a Chrysler Seebring.

          The disadvantage is it has a big flat spot in the center near the wiper cutout. Other than that IRK can provide the "A" post and header. Yo might still need to make something for the space between the glass bottom and the Fiero dash But that part would be easy after doing this step.

                I got my extended windshield from Seebird a couple weeks ago and put it into my car for a fitting. The copy came out fairly well but if I was to get another one, I would ask Pat to make a couple changes to the pattern and the mould.

                The driver's side upper edge where it rounds the corner is about 1/4" higher that the centre of the screen on the top so it would need a bit of body work on the surround to have it all match up. The sides of the windshield are also about 1/2" narrower at the bottom. So I will need add in a bit of mounting plate to the lower portions of the a pillar and then add in some material on the a pillar surround.

                Overall it is a pretty good copy but it would need some tweaking to get it set up for others. Pat is not interested in doing any more of these so unfortunately, this is a dead end now as well.

                Mario has the cut down windshield he had organized out in Montreal and the Sebring surround from IKR are the only replacements I know about now.

                Cheers

                  Don, I thought your windshield was an exact copy of AD's.

                  I'm not familiar with the Sebring surround. How much mods does that need? Would that still work on a basically stock Fiero?
