Project #1 -- Making an alternate means to open glove box.
I couldn't find a thin wire (e.g. fishing line), so I used a twisty-tie wire
from my box of garbage bags. Like threading a needle while sewing, I
inserted the twisty-tie wire thru a hole in the latch pin mechanism. I tied
each end of the twisty-tie wire in a square knot -- making a small loop. I
covered the loop wire with black electrical tape, keeping it flush with the
top of glove box door.
By pulling on wire loop, a person has an alternate means of releasing the
door latch -- a back-up plan, to anticipate that the normal handle will
break off at some point in the future.
Project #2 -- Hiding deer whistles behind vents in air dam.
I bought a nice set of deer warning whistles made by Bell Automotive. I
found mine at Wal-Mart. They are two-piece such that the whistle can be
removed and re-attached to its base.
I observed the location of torx screws fastening the front air dam to the
bumper. I drilled out the rear hole of each of deer whistle mounting base to
allow for the diameter of torx screw.
I removed and used torx screws to fasten deer whistle mounting bases behind
black inserts in front air dam. I removed double-side tape and added a dab
of Permatex Black RTV to each mounting base.
