Help! (1965 Mustang)

I need to know how to install a new glove box into my 1965 mustang coupe. I have the box, and the new screws for it, I just can't figure out how to get it IN there. Thanks for your help!

The way it worked on my truck was that I had to remove the glovebox door ... insert the new box from the front, collapsing the sides somewhat to get in in past the opening ... once it gets past the opening, the sides straighten out and it expands big enough to slide back forward (towards you) and seat itself around the lips of the opening.

I hope you know what I'm saying ... it's a bit hard to describe.

If you removed the old one, you'll better understand what I'm trying to describe because you would have had to push it in far enought to get the edges of the box in to view and collapse the box so you could pull it towards you and out of the cavity where it was sitting.

Anyway, that's my piece ... I hope it helps.

Thanks man. I figured it out! I didn't get a chance to remove the old one... it was torn to shreds when I got it. I bought the car beat up and am just now putting it back together. Being only 17, I'm learning how to do all this stuff for the first time for me, but I'm gettin' good at restoring it. I can't wait 'til it's cherried. It's my first restoration and everything. =)

65, Just fold it slightly inward along the creased lines(fold along all the lines at once) and it will slip right in. Watch the little lens in the upper corner and don't snag it going in

Have fun, man! I restored my first ride when I was 17, too ... drove it out to Los Angeles and back to New Jersey ... it's a very rewarding experience!
