My new Glass Glove Box
Received Kevin's glass box a couple of weeks ago, and slowly painted it with Krylon Any Surface satin black spray paint. I then lined the inside with self-stick black felt from the local AC Moore (there are 2 kinds, soft and stiff, and they have different labels, so you can see the label in one pic). This color - as you will see in the photos - is blacker and shinier than the plastic, however, as I am planning to replace the dash pieces with leather wrapped pieces, it is a very close match in terms of color and shininess with the standard black leather; note the gear shift gaiter for comparison.
The fit is very good - meaning very tight - but that way I don't have to worry about screwing in through the back, because it's definitely not going anywhere. I am very pleased and now have a place for all the stuff that was in my old car! I also purchased a small nickel silver handle from HD, which is close to the finish of the aluminum, but not sure I will need it. The felt only goes to the edges of the flatter parts, because if it went to the very edges, the lid will not close, and these parts cover each other when the door is closed. Thanks, Kevin! (sorry if the images are giant. I went to preferences, and it says it will automatically re-size them?)
