Found soft Aluminum angle to be used on my glove box. It is counter trim about 3/16 x 3/4 inches. Was found at a local 3 generation Ace Hardware store. 12 Dollars and some change for it. Comes pre drilled and with attaching screws. Hardware stores and boat supply houses are places to look for items we need on these cars.
Thanks for sharing. I took out my not functioning radio, made a wooden box to fill in the hole and finished it with a stained oval wooden door. I used some chrome trim around the edge, but am not totally satisfied with how it looks. Now have a usable (if small) glove box like the originals. I’ll check at my local DIY for your solution.
Don’t know if this is the stuff that you are talking about but
Cowles Products Company, New Haven, Ct makes and sells something called “Custom Chrome” which is flexible and comes with a peel off 3M adhesive back. Good stuff. Seems to age well. The 1/8″ stuff will bend around a 1″ radius nicely. Bright chrome look, even though it is plastic.
