Awesome tech post to start with; and the additional info takes it over the top.
Thank's for the kudos Guy's, it's appreciated!
Can I be your friend?
You betcha Dave! My old retired buddies stop by to BS while
I'm fabbing something, and happen to mention....'why don't
you make a couple xtra of those?' LOL
Thank's for letting us ride along on the Vicky journey!
Awesome article!! You are really good at what you do. A true Craftsman.
What did you use for the portion of the hinge that attaches to the dash lip? Thanks
If I can find some blank Chrysler rocker covers, I'd like to have IMPERIAL stamped in them. I'll start looking around.
I fabbed a piece of 3/16" round stock to mimic the original hinge since
a friend wants the original. I had cut the back out because the door
was to heavy for the magnetic catch.
Dave: I found them! LOL
This one's gettin my vote..
Are they yours and are they for sale?
BTW, if I hadn't done three tech threads myself, I would have voted for this one!
Dave: Just a pic I pulled from the HAMB. I see them on e-bay once in
Me too! Thanks for sharing your technique with us! The results show excellent attention to detail during preparation and execution of each project.
Thank's Guys, appreciate the vote of confidence!!
I found another pic that I added to post#56 that shows the simple die
I used to stamp the side of the battery box, just wanted to complete that
section of the post. (sorry for the double pics, computer challenged!)
This was my pick for Tech Week because I think it is something that we wouldn't normally think of and it's thinking outside the box. HRP
Thanks; three little hinge pivots, good idea; I was trying to figure out a way to make one wide pivot like the stocker.
Rich, The two outside pivots are actually spread out to the corners to keep the
glove box door from moving side to side. I just threw those on for the pic.
Take care, Rich

Your covers look great! Thank's for the comments on mine, yes
I'm using a cross over on my 354 w/weiand 2 x 4 man.
then why are you running an external thermostat housing ?
Sorry, I meant the lines cross over to tie in to the stat housing. This
