the waterproof/ oil tight knockout cover might look better in there.
you could hit it with a spray bomb and install it.
these have a foam seal and a wing nut on the back to fasten them
you can get these at any home depot WIEGMANN Hole Seal, Oil Tight - Enclosure Hole Seals - 6C749|WAS050 - Grainger Industrial Supply

Well, putting a cap in it makes more sense than doing it wrong.

|psychoholica||If the bus wasnt so pretty I'd put a cap or something on it. The story is so annoying to begin with, we did the entire restoration you see, paint and all. It wasnt until we were doing the electrical did we realize there was one too many holes. The restoration was done in Florida then we drove it to Cali last month so its farrrr away from the shop where there are some proper tools.|

Honestly, I am going with Chevymon, that makes more sense. Either that or put something there, a switch, cig lighter, something.

Personally I would just plug it.

If you want to pay more you can get chrome or stainless.

There is no way that is going to last without having a "ghost line" there. You WILL see it once it's painted. The only way you can fake something like that (not welding it up properly) is to bend in the side of the hole a little so when you spread your filler over it there is a thin layer all the way around the outside. This is still likely going to show a ghost line but you may get away with it.

Tips on how to fix this hole in my metal dash
At some point in my VW bus's life someone decided the ignition should be a push button. So now I have this nickle size hole im trying to get rid of.
To start the repair I put some support behind it and first filled the hole with Tigerhair. Then i used a little Bondo Gold a friend had laying around and put a lite layer on to fill the hole smooth. I decided I didnt really like Bondo (no surprise) so wiped it off smooth with some lacquer thinner so I wouldnt have to sand it smooth and hit the paint.
Thats where I am now. I thought before I tried anything else I'd ask some experts and see if theres a good product(s) or technique out there I should try. Its single stage paint so once its done Ill hit it with some paint and hopefully color sand it until it matches.
