    Default Made my own glove box liner

    I got tired of fighting that cardboard glovebox liner on my Z, so I made one from aluminum sheet. The purpose was to make one that would come straight out from the front---and---have access panels so I don't have to remove it just to change a bulb on my guages.
    Turned into an all day project, but what doesn't anymore....

    Thanks for looking it up! What did you cover the aluminum with?

    I hadn't thought of the rattle idea. How did you bend the metal so neatly? I don't think I have good enough metal working skills to duplicate what you did.
