Glove box door questions???

1-My painter LOST my glove box door and lock...
2-He ordered a replacement door off ebay, (no lock), painted it and dropped it off at my house.
3-I does not fit! The holes on the door hinge do not match the holes on my car!
If I set the center screw in the center hole, the door lines up, but the 2 outer holes are not lining up.
Should I just drill 2 holes in the dash frame and make this work.
I absolutely HATE my painter for too many reasons to list here, and don't want to deal with him any longer....
4-Are there different glove box doors for AC/non-AC cars, or biscyane, impala etc...
VERY frustrated right now...
Any help would be greatly appreciated...I'll buy you an imaginary beer! LOL

The holes are not just holes abut a hole with a stamped thread. Look for General metal clip on page three fourth from bottom of the page.

Do not drill holes in the dash, instead mark the hole from the bottom in the glove box with a pick and drill the holes in the hinge of the glove box to match the car.

These doors are not reproduced, so it has to be original if it is for the right year. Your problem is that there is a separate piece that goes between the lower dash and the hinge that you evidently don't have.

A picture (or two) would be worth a thousand words. Can you post a couple?

I agree with Dave...don't butcher your dash...always go with the lesser of two evils...
