Car Model:
I had an aluminum sheet cut to replace the cardboard back on my heater box the other day, and while talking to one of the guys at the fab shop mentioned the lack of availability of plastic glove box inserts. So we got to talking about that and I said I'd bring in a new cardboard one for them to look at. He guesstimated that if a production run were to be done on 'em, it could knock the price down to about $50 apiece.

They would be just under 1/8" thick aluminum (I'd have them use something that'd match the thickness of the cardboard as closely as possible), and be anodized black. Any felt or fabric lining would be up to the end user since that'd drive the price up quite a bit and options would be pretty limited.

So, who would be interested? This is the same shop that I had discussed doing up some stainless steel repro battery trays, but the cost even for a production run would've been astronomical so I nixed that idea.

Going to crosspost this on and see if there's any interest there as well.

Know how they always build a better idiot? That's me
