Default Home Made Glove Box Doors - Pattern

Has anyone created their own glove box doors for their EZGO TXT cart? BU has a set but they want $90 for them. Seems to me you could make your own for under $20. I'm thinking of using some ABS plastic.

Does anyone have a pattern so I don't have to reinvent the wheel?

I would probably get a thin piece of plexiglas, just barely larger than the area you want to work with, hold it up to the glove box, draw a line around the outside, cut it out and you have a pattern. You could even paint the back of it some color and mount it. You could even use the stick on graphic/decor of your liking. That would be the Deep South Redneck Technique. Just an idea though.

Regardless of the material the door is made out of, take a piece of cardboard (think pizza box) and use that to make a template. Once you have the cardboard door the way you want it, transfer the shape to the door material. The cardboard is easier to tweak the design than the final material will be.
If the door does not have to lock, you could use a magnet to keep the door closed. Screw a small metal angle bracket to the top of the glovebox area and then inset the magnet to the door.

Yeah i would for sure start with cardboard... plexiglass would get pricey if you messed up and after you find a pattern PM it to me

I made one for my stereo. Hold some cardboard up and cut it out with a box cutter. Slice it till it fits. A lot faster than the post man
Don't cut your cart! (or finger)

I was trying to be helpful. It is pretty easy and I don't want anyone to cut their finger. Do you have a pattern?? NO?? What was the purpose of that post then??

isn't one of the benefits of the board that you learn from others? Looks like Tonyton has 2 ways of doing it. I'm still trying to figure out how to attach the hinges and hopefully have them concealed.
