Doghouse cover/glovebox?

Doghouse cover/glovebox?

Postby AstroOafAdventurer [OP] » January 11th 2021, 11:57pm

Apparently subfreezing temps and 23 year old plastic don't mix.
Went to remove it this morning to remove last of the conversion companies add-ons and the cover broke horribly and it got put in the toss pile.
I thought I'd seen a custom one on here but have seen a few and would like to queue it in line for things to do. For now it'll be another thing to grab on my next JY run.
After taking a load to the trash, I've been wishing I'd kept a power socket and maybe the side pieces for attempting something custom.
Do them custom ones typically just sit on the floor or mount the same as factory?

Any pics of what it looked like before you tossed it? It might give us a better idea of your options.

No, I didn't take any pics. I was removing a couple last things and then buttoning everything back up to run up to get it inspected and was dropping trash off on my way so without thinking just tossed it.
The dash sure does look odd w/o it.

I know, cameras ... everywhere... tapping my foot... ( love these 3 dots things )
Me - I don't fart around ours w/o taking 16 pics or 34.

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... Anyone that condones the actions of the American People during the Storming of the Capitol are as complicit as the Assholes themselves.
But no way does this let the Democrats or the MSM off the Hook.
