I am currently working on rebuilding my '95 Honda Civic. I have it to an almost drivable stage with a working stereo. I will be running a stinger voltmeter to keep an eye on my battery under the hood and a Zapco remote status display to watch for any clipping at the sub.
I want both of these displays to be easily visible while I'm driving, and the best place seems to be in the dash panel that goes around the instrument cluster and center vents.
I am thinking about just losing the center vents (I only use my windows in the summer and defrost in the winter so they aren't needed.). I'll include an old picture with the white panel installed.
My plan is to fill the vents so it would look solid, then just cut out the proper holes to fit the gauges. I just don't know how to fill the vents to be "solid". I figured throwing filler over the vents is a bad idea, and if I were to cut the vents out, I didn't know how to seal the area so it could be filled and smoothed.
Any ideas and advice would be greatly appreciated!!
that link will help you. i will cut out the vents so its a square hole, get a flat piece of ABS and use the solvents to attach it. then get some plastic filler from wherever youd like, and use that to sand it\fill it however you like. then cut your hole out, and then you are good to go for paint.
