Series 2 glove box liners

Postby jagnut66 » Wed May 05, 2021 10:01 pm

Hi,
Both the glove box liners / inserts in Elsie May are pretty much shot, the drivers side is the worst but the passenger side isn't that far behind.
Does anybody have (or know of someone who does / a source of) some glove box liners / inserts for a Series 2?
She is of 1955 vintage but I would imagine any from the mid to late 50's would fit.
Many thanks in advance for any help with this.
Best wishes,
Mike.

There is a guy on Fleabay who sells what seems to be 3D printed glovebox liners and sold me one for the passenger side (my drivers side is panelled in for the tachometer). It's not the plush felted material of a real liner, but I'm not paying thirty quid for a bit of cardboard I'm afraid so it was this or nothing! If you can't find him, drop me a PM and I'll dig back for the auction details

Hi Mike,
Nearly £42 each plus postage for the correct cardboard ones now if you buy from one of the 'usual suspects'.....
I have seen these before but I think that the later style will fit Elsie May, as she's got a centralised speedo the same as the later 1000's.
They are a bit of a 'stark' white in colour but I may give them a wipe with tirps and spray them beige, so they don't look too new.
Also they are waterproof.............
Best wishes,
Mike.

I would guess that it is the internal wiper motor which dictates the smaller glovebox liner on the Series 11 cars?

Yes, the RH one needs the cut-off corner for the Wiper Motor, so the LH is a mirror of that, presumably for aesthetic symmetry.
(I assume they didn't swap the motor to the other side for LH drive cars.)

Basically needs to be the type advertised as 'Pre-61' or 'Pre-62' depending who's describing them.

I saw that one Phil, which I think is the one Mike spoke of, but it won't fit a SII due to the wiper motor location.

I made one out of some correx and small nuts and bolts then covered the inside with vinyl, has the advantage of being waterproof (and cheap).

Well, I bought the ones on eBay and adapted the drivers side, using the remnants of my original as a template.
I have to say these are really well made and they won't get damp and collapse.
I also bought some matt beige spray from 'Fat Buddha' online:

The paint took really well to the plastic type material used to construct the liners, it looks shiny when first sprayed but dries to a matt finish and should be durable. Which is better than the stark white they are supplied in.
I would buy these again without hesitation.
Best wishes,
Mike.
