As most C4 owners know, you can’t buy the “breadbox delete” panels that incorporate a glove box any longer. Just out of production.

so I’m building one. It’s been going on in my 88 corvette thread.

Now I’m looking to add a “dash plaque” to it to give it a little more oem feel. The plaque is the one used underhood:

It will need a little freshening up first.
I can’t decide where to put it in the door though. Possible locations:

The panels themselves are going to be painted the same color as what you see in the center dash panel.

The best spot I think is under the vent on the rh side, but it’s pretty tight in there. If the door was another inch wider, it wouldn’t be a problem. If the vent wasn’t there, I would pop it in the far right corner and call it a day. but theres just not enough room to make it look right.

So, what do you think? Where should the plaque go?

I’ll leave it here for a while to see if I like it:

Not sure if it will stay there, but the location seems to make the most sense right now...

3 or 5. I'm a symmetrical person so pic 5 balances the left with the vent on the right. My wife is th edecorator though and what she says is good I never understand. Did you ask your wife? It'll be in front of her all the time and if it doesn't look right to her, you know you'll have to change it!:Banghead:

Lots more work to do, but tou can start to see the final product emerging from the metal....
