Default Diy radio blockoff plate

ok so i just relocated my radio
https://www.d-series.org/forums/diy-f...elocation.html
and i didn't want that hole in the dash where the radio was and i didn't want to go and order a blockoff plate.
when i moved the radio it didn't require the mounting bracket i needed to install a aftermarket radio in the stock place.

so parts and equipment needed;
- old radio mount kit
-1 sheet of project board, ( hobby lobby should have it ) i had it laying around
- Sharpie
- Hot glue gun
- Razor knife
- Hack saw (to cut the project board)(Not pictured)

First i turned the mount kit upside down and traced the inside of the mount kit on the front (Back would of been better) of the project board

I used the hacksaw to cut out just outside of the traceing marks, and a razor knife to trim down the peice

Use the hot glue gun to glue the project board in the mount kit

it is a perfect place to mount gauges, switches, or lights. whatever you want to mount in it, and there's a lot of room behind the plate

**UPdate
i've decided i should take some black rtv or paintable sylicone and fill in the cracks on the inside of the mount kit, you can see the sides of the project board around the sides of mount kit,

He kept his radio as well... check out the last picture. He went with a 96-98 cup holder/console. I persoanlly hated that anytime I had a cup in the holder, I couldn't access the cubby. And in this case, I wouldn't be able to see my radio/use my remote. I never really understood why the cup holders had to have a lid. I swapped mine for a 99-00 cup holder with the open cubby.

If you want a 96-98 with the lid and place4 to mount your radio lower, PM me... I've got one I can sell.

AS for the DIY job, it looks nice and clean.... good work. But is that project board plastic or like a really thick poster board? Why not just buy a piece of carbon fiber and add some flare?
