I've got a thread on DIY going, but hoping I can get some advice here, too.
My dash looks like this:
Note the horrendous gap. I can pull my h/u further into the dash and get a trim ring, but I hate the look of that. I'd like to build out my dash so that the h/u sits flush with it. I'm not doing a FG install, as I don't have the space or ability to do so at my house. I'm wanting to use epoxy putty or something similar. My main issue is how to mock the dash up to get the ball rolling to begin with?
I can't remove my faceplate, and am not really interested in leaving the h/u in while doing this as it's a $1000 unit. Don't want to take the chance on getting crap on it. I could tape it up well, but would rather just not have to go this route.
So, any advice on building this up? Links to installs that have this process?
