    I would be curious to see some templates. I plan to do this mod one day.

    With this thread resurrected it has been interesting to re-read it. I can report that 9 years later my second glovebox remains in regular use just as it was built, & has never needed any attention or fixing. Reading about doing it again brought me out in a cold sweat though!

    Well, it's finished, a bit of tinkering and it's a well made box, have not done the door yet. The hinging system is daunting lol but I managed to get all the templates down. For those who are interested

    I can fit a six pack in there, not advised unless your running air-conditioning though as it's against the vents for heater/ac

    Big cheers to Mudski and Cuppa, loved both your well thought out directions, I take it the screws are holding as a hinge system? Do you reckon a blind rivet would work?

    Maybe, but I imagine when you pull the rivet tight to install it will likely be too tight. The self tappers work well & have never required adjustment since first installed.

    Yeah hard to believe I did this all that time ago. Glad I took the time to post it up, seems to have helped a few out which is what we always want to do. Mine is still functioning perfectly too by the way.

    Everytime I go camping in mine and use the back of the car, I always think more can be done to utilise the two barn doors, for storage or something. The mind never stops ticking...
