Glove Box Brackets

PostPost by: pharriso » Wed Feb 06, 2019 11:47 am

As part of my winter project I have remade brackets to hold the Glove Box to the Dash. The side brackets are the same as the original, but the I improved the top & bottom brackets by using Aluminium Angle:

Steel brackets after paint (with spacer shim for inner bracket & lock plate)

Outer Bracket

Lower Bracket

Inner & Upper Bracket

These parts don't appear to be available from our normal parts vendors, so here's a set of prints to allow anyone else to produce a set:

Note, the brackets are handed, the drawings are for LHD, if you need RHD use a mirror... :roll:
