Hinge for rear glove box

-I was planning to use a piano hinge for my rear glove box between the rear seats but just realized it would not allow the door to clear the carpet when opened.
- I may need to resort to cabinet hinges like edwardb used for his dash glove box.

I bought a 4 inch wide piano hinge from McMaster, and then put a 90 degree bend in one side, so that there was about a 1/2 inch offset.

Classic Truck Parts
Item # GBDH47
About $30.00 if I remember correctly.
Don't remember just what these are supposed to fit, but work great for what your wanting to do. and will leave the door flush with the wall.

I think that this style will work for your glovebox. It moves the door away as it opens. Used this on my dash glovebox - had to drill the holes to mount it. It is available in stainless steel.
