    240z glove box insert upgrade

    For all those with the original style paper/cardboard glove box insert (left image) in their 240z, I found a cheap and easy way to upgrade to a plastic insert from a later 280z (right image).  I picked my used 280z insert up for $10 on ebay a while back.

    Glove Box, 70-73 240Z   280Z Glove Box Compartment
    Here is the picture of what I started with.  A huge cut in the back of my cardboard insert from the prior owner.  Its only gotten bigger since I've owned the car


    Old and new side by side.  The 280z plastic insert will need to be trimmed to fit.


    There are various approaches, I chose to trim just the bottom tab and the made a new hole for the glove box door arm


    The finished product is much nicer than what I had in there originally.  I did need to mount the glove box door first and then slide the new insert in.  I also put screws into these front holes to hold it better.  I probably could have trimmed down the side tabs as well and use the original holes, but this seemed like a much more secure way of mounting the insert.  I will probably look to finish the bottom edge better and possibly heat the plastic to shape it better.
