    As I am going to using a hidden radio and making a plate to cover the existing radio holes I would really like to put something there rather than just a plate. The plate will be about 7" wide X 3" high
    SUGGETION ARE WANTED -------------thanks

    by the way it's a plain jane dash with no junk plastic

    Why don't you just put an original AM radio in? I am going to use modern tech as well, but the radio looks like it belongs there, so it stays and other stuff moves!

    Put an extra glove box there to store your extra attitude.

        I have a dash that was hacked for a DIN radio that disappeared. I'm thinking 3 gauges there would look much better than either a hole or a rinky-dink under dash gauge panel.

        well then what are your choices ?
        A another radio
        B a chunk of diamond plate
        C another chunk of plastic or pack it full of Rage Gold
        D your attitude as suggested above
        E the head off a stuffed animal
        F you could fill it with seam sealer
        G expanding foam
        H plexiglass
        I a piece of mirror
        J a handkerchief
        K toilet paper
        L gauges

        if i come with more suggestions maybe , i will post them

        as a sidenote, i was going to suggest keeping the AM radio in there myself, but i thought of some better suggestions

        It's all in good humor.

        Installing a variation of this would match the classic car look and your forum personality. [​IMG]

        But seriosly this is cool [​IMG]

        I'm putting a radio ,CD player in the glove box. Leaving the stock radio where it is, that way I don't have to figure out what to do with the hole.
