I need to replace my original 1951 standard glove boxes... who (if anyone) reproduces these? Here is a view of the unrestored glove boxes.

… the boxes, in the attached picture, don't look that bad - my '50 only has one and decided when I get to thinking 'bout them, i'm gunna' make metal ones, like on a '47 - line them with material and never think 'bout them again - z

not exactly "fiberglass" but here is the description from the link posted 3 or 4 posts above yours....

'PERFECT REPRODUCTION SPLIT GLOVE BOXES , THESE ARE MADE OUT OF A SPECIAL LAMINATED COMPOSITE MATERIAL , ( ROVING AND EPOXI ) , SAME SHAPE , SAME THICKNESS AS THE REAL THING , BUT LIFETIME WARRANTY .'

Thank you all for helping me out! I looked at my boxes and I think they can be strengthened and used after applying some epoxy to the exterior and painting them. I have sewn up nice pockets for them once they are ready to go back in my car.

Very cool stitched repair!! Thanks for giving me inspiration to avoid the 're-pop' solution and make my 70-year-old boxes work! I really try to recondition rather than replace... again, thanks!
