Block Off Plate

can find a block off plate to
cover the holes where my

Automobile stereo stores

almost the only time anyone ever makes a radio deleate plate is when a car maker builds one of their production cars into a factory race car thats not REALY ment to be used on public streets, even though its probably technicly still "street legal"

that being said, your best bet is must likely to go to the hobby shop and buy a sheet of white modeling plastic used for making parts for plastic models

make a templete of the chrome radio trim edge i see in the photos by taping some white paper over the opening and rubbing that edge with a pencil

using some 3m spray glue, lightly take that templete to the white plastic and neatly trim the plastic to about the middle of the line

then simply sand the plastic to a perfect fit, paint interior color, and attach to the dash by holding it into its position, and pasting 2 plastic scaps to the back of it thru the radio dial holes

neat looking piece, perfect fit and easy to reverse if u ever want to

I know FORD offered DELETE COVERS for their earlier cars. It would just be the outer mounting panel/bezel without the opening or an insert that would fill the existing opening.

Same with heater controls when a heater was optional or delete for a competition car.

I have a 67/68 MUSTANG HEATER DELETE if anyone is interested..
