Glove Box Replacement
the cardboard glovebox to aluminum
It's a piece
of cake to duplicate the cardboard glovebox in aluminum flashing
(the sheetmetal roofers use, available in several widths at most
- Remove the
cardboard box and unfold it flat, then copy it on the aluminum,
leaving enough overlap at the edges to pop-rivet it together.
- Fold the
aluminum using scraps of 1x2 to square the edges (it folds very
easily) making it a wee bit smaller so it will fit in from the
front. Might have to trim a little from the front edge.
- Before riveting,
unbend it and cover the inside with some stick on felt from a
craft store and wrap it over the sharp front edge.
- Rivet it
together (put the long end of the rivets toward the inside) and
use sheetmetal screws up/down into the original dash flange from
- Now you have
a last-forever metal glovebox that goes in and out in a flash.
Maybe $5 and an afternoon if you already have some of the stuff
