The 88s didn't come with them. You can use the covers from the older models, but they don't fit right (because the sheetmetal is different) and will probably fall out when you drive.

Rodney makes one designed to fit the 88s which according to his website will fit the other years too, since its held on with screws.

I've never known anyone who bought one however. I think most people just live with the open hole on the 88s.

I just used some buytal rope to hold it in place on my 88GT (but imagine silicon or other would work as well).

I've got an 88GT and have no idea what anyone is talking about. Would someone be kind enough to post a pic of where this should go and what it looks like on?

Thanx.

This post by JCircs shows it well. Its just to the right of the serpentine belt.

In 1988 some bean counter at GM decided not to create a new part for the 88s and left the open hole. Probably saved $0.001 per car. Which in those days they would leave the wheels off if they could get away with it and save a nickel.

My 84 Indy doesn't have one either. The one from my 87 is too small too.
