restoring the glove box lid and right side lower dash.
« on: January 30, 2007, 09:26:10 PM »
All,

My camaro has really bad fake woodgrain cover over the lower passenger side dash that holds the glovebox door ..ect.ect. I want to do something about this but I have not seen any replacement parts for the glove box door or anyhting????

Any clue as to how I can restore this to standard interior black? I guess I need to strip the old fake woodgrain cover off of it and sand down but since I cant find replacemnt parts for this piece, Im affraid if I royally screw it up, Im stuck with crap ??

any hints. I did restore the instrument panel and it looks great, but along side of the fake woodgrain does not do the work any justice!

thanks,

 NickP.

Try to strip of the fake wood grain (if it's like contact paper) with some of that citric acid based (orange) stripper for adhesives. That shouldn't harm the original paint underneath. It may be all you have to do.
Good luck:
