my lockbox

my glove box was a nothing when i received the jeep, was only a hinge! so as i was taking it out, due to the complaints of it stabing the passengers, i realized why not just fix it up.

here it is finse.

here it is without paint and a bolt opened.

used 1/16" steel, 1 small piece of 1x1/2 u channel bar, old hinge, a new file cabinet lock, some nuts and bolts, primer, flat black spray paint, screws, and cement.

the u channel is welded to a 1/16 plate and used as the female part of the lock, it is screwed and cemented to inside of glove box.

ignore handle. last thing i want is someone to have the easy ability to rip the box open!

here is a closer picture of the female part of the lock

also im going to put weather strips so its water proof..

i think this box is good accompanied by a car alarm..
