While reading a thread on dash pads, posted today. It reminded me of something I did to a CJ cardboard glove box. I thought I would share it.

Sorry no pictures, My old cardboard glovebox was in bad shape, rivets missing, a little smashed up, out of shape, and just looked bad. Most of us are on a budget. Cost is always a factor, and a new one didn't seem important, I let it sit.

For a reason I don't remember,I was useing some fiberglass resin and cloth. The box was nearby so I thought I'd put some on it also.I added some small strips of the cloth at seams and bad corners, along with the resin. I coated it inside and out, and painted. its now nice and sturdy, won't soak up moisture, and is easy to clean. and was almost free.

Bill

That's good... makes it easier. Cut a shallow V to get rid of the loose, broken glass. Fill it flush with DuraGlas. 2 strips of 1 1/2 ounce mat on the inside. Glazing compound on the outside.

Well, the YJ to CJ is on hold for a bit. The wife wants this 1976 out from in front of the house. I bought it for the Meyer plow. Its already off. I also found this thing has a 360 in it. The top and doors have been removed, as well as some other stuff.

I had to remove the roll bar, to remove the dash. A little work with a hot wrench took care of that.
