|JJr||If someone could make a cad drawing of the liner it could be 3D printed, not sure how cost effective that would be unless multiples were needed.|

glove box liners are basically unobtanium. I have toyed with moulding an extra one I have but not sure what to make it out of.
anybody have any pressboard experience? ?

TFB3: Original dash from a US 71 GTV, the top is in excellent shape, the GTV dash does have foam below the vinyl. (pic's in my resto thread)
pickeljr: Yes I have the glove box liner (thx for the clarification TFB3 ) and it's in excellent condition too, I'm sure I'll touch it up with some flocking once the resto is complete. I think the glove box liners are as rare as hen's teeth!
Anyone have any thoughts on the nub issue? Thank you

|TFB3||actually, the part is known as a glove box liner. mine was swiss cheese and required a lot of work|

|pickeljr||Was your glove box that goes behind the glove box door in good shape ? I am looking for a good box since mine is in pieces. any ideas?|

|TFB3||Is that a GTV dash? looks like a foam spider job. If you are unable re-adhere then it's restoration time|

|JJr||Hoping someone can help. I repairing some minor cracks to the front of my dash and nub damage, the nubs are below the glove box door ( left especially) has been damaged, I've adjusted the door several times but it still hits the left one and wont open cleanly to sit on the nubs (which is what I assume they were made for)|

Do you by any chance would be kind enough to describe what you used to "Fold back" these mortices, a small flat screwdriver?
Would someone have a detail picture of the Backside of these rings?
Thanks in advance a kind regards,

Rings are crimped to cardboard cutouts. Imperative that you remove tension of crimp (from back ) without disturbing the fiberboard. Small mortice to spread and plyers to hold secure is sufficient.
Once entire ring is relieved, retract one end of ring to center without bending. you can then insert needlenose plyer in end of ring and gently remove/rotate from cutout without distorting cutout or ring.

|TFB3||I will provide a new post detailing process into the next day or 2 (with photos ).|

Great result - nicely done.
I had some trouble with adhesion (see post 24, above), so I would also appreciate understanding how you achieved your great result, particularly heating/stretching into the gauge recesses without disturbing material on the face.

Would really be helpfull as I want to do the same ... one day... but have no clue of how to remove these metalic rings/circlings.

Ok guys, Here's the latest update on 66 GTV cardboard dashboard restoration.
Multiple coats of resin, sanding and shrink wrapping dinoc and here's the state of restoration attached. Glove box is also swiss cheese so lots of building up and sanding to be done there. Most complicated project I've done in 30 years!
