    he's suggesting that you may have an air filter behind the glove box that should need to be replaced if it gets dirty, it's a maintenance thing, so if you had such a situation, i would suggest making your glove box door still open as it used to, dont fiberglass it shut.

    Well, I got to this thead late but would still like to offer my advice. get some wood and build a frame that fits into that section, once it fits in there good with about 1/8'' gap all along, I would take the screen's bezel and use wood dowels or pop sicle sticks to hold the screen in place where you want it, then stretch your fleece over it and resin it. Then the process just follows of adding glass/bondo sand prime paint.

    Also since you want to make it removable, I would suggest using industrial strength velcro, velcoing the back of the frame you made and velcroing the actual metal where the glove box would sit, this way it stays in place well, and will still be removable.

    =)


    EDIT; Just read u got your glove box.

    oh, you would glue the bezel of the screen with the popsicle sticks, then you stretch the fleece over everything and resin it, the resin makes the fleece as hard as a rock. I am not sure how much you know about glass, so it is kinda hard to explain things in depth, but with the glove box, that is a cake job, I have done some just like that, but not for a s-10, just cut the glue box and CA glue the bezel in place, sand it all down, bondo, primer, paint.

    hit me up
