Glove Box Lid Fittings

Post by stuartb » Wed Oct 11, 2017 10:13 pm

I am planning on fitting a lid to the glove box in the dashboard of my tiger.
I was wondering what type of catch and handle/knob others have used on their cars and whether they fitted a check strap.

Thankyou Stuart

Hi.

I have both a Tiger and a TR6 and both dashes are similar thickness and the
the hinges, lock and stay from the TR6 would I think be adapatable to use when fitting a lid to the Tiger dash.
If you go to say Moss-europe.co.uk website and look a the TR6 Dash page, it will become clearer. Presumably the Tiger never had a lid?

Thankyou Rich

I have just bought a complete lid with hinges & Catch/lock for a TR4 on Ebay for 99p.
Looks like the catch & hinges are suitable.

Great, hope it all works out. The hole in the lid to fix the lock may take a carefull bit of carpetry as is machined on the angle. Regards Rich
