Im guessing its going to be tough, but I thought I would see if anyone has ever created a file to 3D print a piece that would fill in where the original clock in the console goes. I am doing a Holley EFI swap, and since my clock doesnt work, I thought that would be a great place to mount the EFI screen. I dont want to damage the original piece, so thought about 3D printing one that I could mount the screen holder for the Holley EFI to. So thought I would see what people have done here. Im also going to see if a friend can design and print it for me, and either way I'll make sure to get pics of how it turns out.

3D printing panels for that area is a great idea. I have had a hole there for ever. The options are  endless. I can' twait to see what you do.

Im going to head out to the garage right away to try and remove the piece right now. My buddy is going to see what he can do in terms of recreating it, it wont likely have the same texture, but im going to see what I can do after.

Well I figured I would share what my friend ended up coming up with. He started off making just a blank piece that we could build on from there.

He ended up redesigning it a bit so it would use 2 pieces  and sandwich together to hold it in place. He also raised a small portion of it where the Holley sleeve would sit so that it wouldnt interfere against the chrome strip that goes around this piece.

So finally after getting it all printed, and adding a small hole for the wire to pass through, its in the car and looks great. I have a little extra wire out right now so I can slide the screen up to get at the SD card slot, but eventually it will get tucked in so you cant see it. I may also use the dremel and just cut a slot out of the holder so I can access the SD card without having to lift the screen out. But I am thrilled with how it turned out.

Looks great.  It blends right in and is a clean mount.  Thanks for posting the info and pictures.
