Stupid spare parts project...
Roughly 4 1/2 years ago we built the glovebox from scratch. "Why would you do that?" you ask. Long story short we touched it and it just gave up and fell into the passenger floor board. We know - it was old and maybe the screw driver we put in there was just too much.
I remember part of the build was a conversation what when like this:
Me: "Should be put in a light?"
My son: "What are you a wimp?"
As such there was no light this entire time. So I just happen to be in the garage cleaning up the workbench and noticed a universal trunk light that we did not use on the trunk project. Looking in the electrical parts box I found a switch that was relocated in the center console project, a silly little "fighter pilot" switch cover (prior to center console), wire (from the original engine compartment rewiring) and a box of connectors. Hmmm
Here is the design: (note the little "bracket" that holds onto the glovebox wall)
While it does not turn on automatically (but it could by replacing the switch) it was free and I think my grandfather would have been proud!
