    Anyone Live Close to Budget U Pull It BARTOW

    Hi, I was in Florida last week but was almost 7 hours from this location so I called to see if they could pull a small part(glove box- 10 minutes or less to remove)and ship but unfortunately as the name stated itís a U Pull It. Wondering if someone is going there by chance and can pull a small glove box for me. I will pay for your time and shipping of course.

    P.M me if you can

    Thank you,

    Stephane

    No DeLorean. I happen to also own an 88 Fiero and was hoping to get the glove box out of the Fiero they have.

    Ah, 1988 the last and best year. Is it a Formula or GT? I had a Fiero as well. They don't have a glovebox per se but a little pocket where the glovebox would be. They made aftermarket solutions if that is what you need, or are you talking about the center console storage box that is positioned between the two seats? I'm just curious if this is technically a glove box or is known as such for the Fiero.

    Itís an 88 Fiero GT with a rare factory optioned T-Top. (Only 614 produced in the GT model)5spd, red exterior with Grey interior.

    Iíve driven vin 2450 less than 100 miles in the last two years to get this car back on the road since I started restoring it. Should be done in the next month. Now just looking for odds and ends.

    Even though they made almost 370,000 Fieroís good used parts seem to be harder to find than the DeLorean(my guess younger 2nd owners with a smaller budget unlike the DeLorean). Used 5 speed Getrags parts or complete Getrag transmissions are hard to find and Good used or NOS 88 interior pieces are usually quite expensive if and when you find them.

    The part Iím hopping the u-pull-it still has is a used aftermarket glovebox that replaces the dash map pocket.

    That is an awesome car. My buddy also has an 88 GT; same color too! Last year he moved from Ohio to Arizona so we commemorated the move with a Route 66 trip in the Fiero. It was easily the best road trip I've ever had. We had a few hiccups with the car along the way, but nothing we couldn't handle. Overall it was an absolute blast.

    Sorry, not trying to hijack this thread. Just love this car

    +1. Absolutely beautiful. I had an 86 many years ago, but I always wanted an 88. The Fiero was my first resto and engine swap. Loved that car. I added the 88 rear spoiler to mine during the resto:



    I know a Delorean owner in Lakeland which is near Bartow. Maybe he will see this thread.

    There are couple of fieros in the local junk yards by me that I frequent pretty often. Next time I'm out walking around I'll check and see if any still have the glove box intact.

    Still looking for Fiero parts? My local junk yard has... a couple.







    I am there a few times a week hunting for BMW parts so if you need something specific post up a picture of what you need and I can take a look. I was looking at dashboards and saw some with map pockets... but I'm not sure what the aftermarket glove box looks like.

    I counted 30+ cars so hopefully that means at least one of them will have what you're looking for. Prices at this place are really reasonable too. Gibson Iron & Metal in Neenah, WI
