    I have a Brookville roadster dash with the 3 window style glove box, and the metal box. any ideas on how I should coat the inside of it? I feel like paint would just chip or rub off on everything in the glove box. I have thought about powdercoating? one of those fancy duracoat or cerecoat baked on firearm coatings? rattle can undercoat ? just spray paint it and hope for the best? glued on cloth liner?

    What have you guys done, and what would you recommend?

    I've seen a couple of the metal boxes where the owners glued in felt to stop any noise or damage to the inside.

    The original ones had a cloth liner. I took my 3W box apart and replaced the cloth. I think I used some of the headliner cloth.
    The box has a tab the bolts to tab under the cowl for support.

    Glue felt in there. Stops stuff sliding around in an old jalopy. Occasionally our glove box pops open on a decent bump, of which there are plenty on our bad roads.
