Oopsie!

I want to start off with a little tip, sunscreen will eat vinyl and paint. Now, that I've got you curious, does anyone have any good leads on a 92-96 grey dash?

Yesterday, my fiance jumped into my truck and noticed that my glovebox was hanging open about 3/4" and the light was on. Apparently, the piece that holds one end of the glovebox latch had broke. After we got where we were going, I went to unplug the light and noticed that the piece that had broke off and where it broke off from had some sort of goo on them. Upon further inspection I found that the bottle of sunscreen I had on my dash had leaked completely out. So after I got home, I went to clean it all up and everywhere the sunscreen touched, the grey paint came off. It had also leaked behind the dash by the far passenger side vent and caused the piece below the vent to crack.

Long story short, I'm not too happy with myself right now for allowing this to happen. Now I've got to figure out a way to rig that latch back up so I can put my glovebox back in, and plug the light back in. But now I've got to start looking for a new dash before it breaks all the way. BIG BUMMER!

Re: Oopsie!

...10 types of people, those that understand binary and those that don't?

I have some vinyl paint left over from the fiberglass switch panel I made, but I have a feeling that with the rough suspension and the oklahoma potholes, that that crack is only gonna get worse.
