Wings with HD magnetic glove box doors
If anybodys got lowers and is thinking of putting them new magnetic glove box doors and use sanchos wings, everything will technically fit, but not well. You wont be able to easily open the doors, pretty much defeating the purpose.
Anyway, finally got some time to experiment... Took the wings off and used a fine tooth hack saw to trim about 2" off the bottom of the wings. The used 320 grit sandpaper to smooth off the rough edge, masked them off, and hit em with a little gloss black paint around the existing border to clean things up. Put some new two sided tape and done!
Can get inside the gloveboxes nice and i think the wings will still function close to intended. The bottom edge of the wings are about 1/2" higher than the top edge of the lowers. I probably couldve left a little more but too late for that, whats done is done.
Not the most technical post ever, but wanted to share that its not too difficult to take a hacksaw to some parts and give them a second life. Just gotta take your time and be careful...
