Glove box

Recommended Posts

My glovebox is torn almost all the way through one side so I need to either repair or replace.  I am guessing its cardboard so that in the event of a big crash it wont cause leg injurys, or were they just being tight!!!.  I fancy lining it anyway as plain cardboard does look a bit crap. Any suggestions as a material to make it from?

The one I bought from SJ for my S1 is exactly the same as the original and made from cradboard (millboard).

In the end I decided to take the rivits out , spread it out flat and glue it to a sheet of leather then re fold and rivet it.  Looks a bit less cardboard now !!

SJ sells a kit for the inner.

 

On a similar topic does anyone have a glove box lid (pref in grey) for my 85 n/a Esprit they would be willing to sell?

 

The inside millboard of mine seems OK but the outer leather has shrunk and warped!
