Here, check out all of this. And when you post a thread, actually read the responses to your post. This is an online forum, you are going to get some sarcasm and funny business. Don't disregard everything that is said because of a few goofy responses.

Feel free to contribute. I'd try to avoid things that are already in the FAQ/DIY section

Problem right now is that there is tons of stuff that is still waiting to come over from Zeroforum. Over 2/3 of teh questions asked on a daily basis in this forum right now could easily be searched for. I just want to supplement that void for the time being.

I'm not sure which thread you are talking about Garrett

I know Danny, but this forum really frustrates me of late. All of the knowledgeable vets seem to have moved on and the same damn questions keep getting asked. I know that this is inevitable, but no longer do people say "Search" due to it being broken. I figure I might as well lend something constructive to the issue.

Also, if you type "Dan J Reed DIY" in Google, his page is the first hit. :thumbup:

Pretty sure that to install an upper glove box you have to access the screws that hold on the airbag cover. Should be some behind the pass. vent. The rest should be easy to find. It's been so long since I had that section apart I don't really recall. But installing one would require you to remove your airbag. Be sure to disconnect your battery first
