Does anybody have a copy, link, how-to, etc with instructions on how to install the Fiero Store glove box?
It looks like on the 84 there is 4 screws held on with speed nuts but the are not accessible from under the dash or from the front.

Thanks

You have to remove the dash to get to them.

Remove the speed nuts from the dash pocket. The ones you can get to. It might help to remove the speaker.
The one you can't get to... Grab the dash pocket and give it a mighty yank. The stud will break off. (IIRC, this is actually in the instructions that come with the glove box.) The alternative, as mentioned, is to remove the dash, and then to remove the A/C duct from the inside of the dash. Not really difficult. Just time consuming.
The four screws for the glove box just screw into the dash. It helps if you drill pilot holes.
One of them will also go into the A/C duct, but it won't hurt anything. You'll be able to tell when you drill the holes. The drill will penetrate the dash panel, and then will bottom out on something a little farther (3/4"?) in. You could always find a shorter screw if you wanted to. Again, it doesn't hurt anything.

I have done it without removing the dash, remove the speaker to access the upper screws.

Are we saying that a new run of these glove boxes has been made? I knew the guy that originally made these boxes and the console accessory trays that installed near the radio. I believe that his last name was Campbell he was from Portland.
Just for nostalgia sake here was the manufacturer:
Aspect Auto
18807 NW Columbia St
Portland, OR 97231
503-621-1173
503-621-3324
Last I spoke with them they advised that they made as many as the mold would allow. The mold had worn out but what kind of mold wears out with the small Fiero volumes that are typically made?
