Spiffied up my glove box door today

I have been riding around staring at that big ol plain red glove box door forever, so I decided to something to dress it up a little. I bought a repop Cheyenne Super glove box insert a while back, and as anyone who has them knows, the woodgrain is terrible on them. So I did what Special-K and did and painted it with the spray on bedliner and then I came back over with gloss black. I taped up the aluminum edge, and scuffed the woodgrain part with some 400 grit sandpaper. It almost matches the texture on the dash bezel perfectly. I took a '67 glove box emblem that all the chrome had worn off of and painted the outside and letters with a silver leaf paint pen. It is a little different, and looks a lot better than the plain glove box door IMO.

Re: Spiffied up my glove box door today

Nice job, it looks great.

I asked awhile back if anyone made templates of the inner glove box door, ash tray and instrument cluster...I got nothing. Now thanks to this thread I see I can just use the repro Cheyenne wood grains...Thanks!

That's kind how I got the idea to do this. The truck below had a woodgrain decal painted black put on a chromed glove box door. The only difference in mine is that it is the Super trim, and has the aluminum backing and the decal was already installed. I think I may do my '67 C-30 like this one.

Re: Spiffied up my glove box door today

looks even better when you do it on a chrome door... then it matches the inst panel and ballances the whole dash out IMO.

Just a tip - The pattern matches well, but I found out when I was doing it that the spray in bedliner is a deep black. It is more like a real real dark grey. I had to topcoat it with gloss black paint to get the deep rich black I wanted.

I just got a set off ebay and they were installed on everything and did not fit well. The ash tray one is definitely too small and the dash one seems to be a little to small to cover everythign, but the person did a poor job installing it. I am going to attemp to peel it off and reposition it. Then i will be painting mine like this...or another idea i have...

You can send it to Advanced Plating in Nashville. Prices are depending on size and work needed to remove dents, dings, etc. They do great work. www.advancedplating.com

Chromed glove box door 125.00 TO 275.00
Chrome powder coat glove box door 15.00 TO 125.00
