SP Class - GLove Box Removal OK?

Postby skimobile » Thu May 26, 2016 8:10 pm

Just a quick question for Don or Walter.
In SP Class, I'm aware that the heater and dashboard must be retained but is it alright to remove the glove box, which on my 03 WRX is located on the underside of the passenger dash?

.......well I hope it's legal. Ran without mine last weekend.
Worse case is you can put it in your trunk, or secure it elsewhere temporarily.

I'm not sure mine will fit with my new cage.

So long as it doesnt come across (along with other stuff) as excessive lightening, it should be OK. There is nothing in the rules that requires the glove box per se. At that point it would come down to whether any other stuff - beyond what is specifically permitted - has also been removed.

I've never been able to put my glovebox back since the cage was installed, and it has not been an issue. In order to do so I would have to cut it apart to the point that it's just the face panel. I still have the glove box and it can't weigh more than a few pounds at most. Nothing but brittle old plastic.

I have mine in the car (SP4 class) where I had to cut the right-most 3" off the side, drill some holes in it, and then zip tie it to the vertical cage bar. I think I cut off the lower hinges so that the pivot point is now the zip ties.... the latch still works.
