I have a friend with an early 90's ps that his little recessed glove box has a lid. My 1989 did not come with one. Anybody know if this can be retrofitted (i.e. to keep splash down to protect cell phones and stuff)

I would be sure you could fab something up out of plexiglass or something, but thats a great idea. I'll have to keep an eye out for the responses. I may steal your idea for my 87

The locking glovebox lid was not available up to '89, but was std in '90. I got one and installed it in the early fall of '90 and yes they do retrofit if you can find one.
Hinges are black nylon, the locking latch can probably be found at a RV/camping center and 1/4" black Plexiglass or Lexan can be used to make one. The inside edge is beveled at 45 degrees and you can fine sand and polish the plastic just like you can metal with metal polish and a buffer. It won't keep water out, but will secure important stuff out of the direct sunlight. It still gets hot in there but it's better than nothing.

It seems that you could make something attractive from something other than acrylic. Teak, perhaps.
