Here is a neat trick if anyone happens to be installing a lower glove box.
I've done this on both my MKIII's, people seem to like it so I figured I'd post how to do it.
Starting with just the lid, carefully removed from the shell:
Get some nice black felt, cut slightly oversize. Precisely cut a hole in the felt where the little divider rib is going to stick up through. This takes a little practice, depending on your manual dexterity . I measuread and drew it out as a template on a piece of paper first, lightly glued it to the felt, then cut out the hole with a ruler and an X-acto knife:
The idea is to make the slot look as factory as possible. Using 3M Spray 77, glue the felt in place. I saved the gluing of the folded-over parts for later. Now the tricky part -- working around the edge, tuck the felt into the little seam in the glovebox door. I had to use a couple of small screwdrivers and the back of the X-acto blade. It's a tight gap.
But it looks great when it's all done! In the corners I used a little bead of glue, and you can see where some of it seeped through the felt, so be careful. Here is the finished product installed. It is a little touch that no one but you will notice. But at least now your tire gauge and sunglasses won't be rattling around in there as much .
im not gonna lie, i hate when crap rattles around in my lower glove box, and i would have never thought of this.
i think i may apply this to my upper glove box, since most of my tools are in there anyways.
