Another fire casualty discovered... Need 64 Spyder glove box door
Posted by: bbakerga ()

Well, I hadn't looked very closely at my glove box door after the fire... since the fire was under the driver side, but apparently there was a LOT of smoke that went through the glove box and whatever was in the smoke significantly damaged the glove box door, especially the chrome surround. If I had a really nice surround, I could PROBABLY disassemble everything and make it work, but if I can find a nice complete glove box door, that would be preferable.

I've already started reaching out to vendors,etc. but if any of you have a really nice one you could part with, please let me know.

I guess it depends on what you consider nice. I may have one in a box in my garage. I will take a look this evening, then post a photo.

I haven't asked Dave yet, I figured he would probably see this post on here.

Regarding the definition of "nice", good question. I want it to be in a similar range of the rest of my restoration, and that stuff ranges between 8-10 on a scale of 1-10. I know it's impossible to find a perfect one without having it restored like Nick did.

I'm looking for an 8-9. Minimal pitting, scratches, and wear... but doesn't have to be perfect. ...borderline between "nice driver" and "show car" smiling smiley

Well it is probably a 5 out of 10 then.

Let me know
Good luck

Oh that would for sure fit but it is not a SPYDER glove box door. I wonder how is your SPYDER (only) radio face plate?

Correct. It would fit, but not a Spyder glove box. Thank you, though.

My spyder (only) radio face plates pretty good. Not perfect, probably 8/10.
