I removed a 9 Inch graph from my console and wanted to put something over the hole besides a plain black cover, anybody ever covered this area with anything more unique? Maybe liked a etched piece of colored metal to match boat colors?

Any ideas?

Thanks

I had a buddy with a sign shop make me a cover plate for it. Custom Triton logo to match my boat colors out of vinyl material over the top of an aluminum plate.

coachman that sounds cool and kinda what I was looking for. Stereo sounds good was well, although I only use that for tournaments.

I made one for my boat that was an aluminum plate encased in graphite. Then I shot clear coat on it and added a BassCat emblem to it.

I wish I had room to mount a 9" in my dash....much less wish to fill a hole left by one.

We have a CNC plasma bed here at work....if you can CAD the coordinates for it, i might can try and cut one.

I'd cover the hole with a Garmin 93sv plus.

Put one of those large, white Lowrance covers over it and tell people you like your other graph better.

On my last boat I removed a 5", I wanted to build a small 'glove box' in there to store my phone. You might consider building something for small item/dry storage, and mounting it in the hole.
