50 steel dash question

The picture is repair I made to the steering column mount to the dash on a 50 chevy 3100 pickup. I will eventually add an after market steering column that has a column drop. My question is how others have mounted their drop? Should I fill the dash space that is indented or just put the column drop over it?

Do not have a Chevy, but I would fill it in due to the offset.
I cant see the hole dash but the column sitting to the right of the gauge centers would be less notable if you did not have that there.
Just my opinion and that not worth that much.
