Easy Fix Huge dash hole?

I have a 2001 F250 previous owner drilled out hole for a tranny gauge into the main dash piece. Cost around 250 for the new dash. Same place as the one pictured. Thought about cutting out a thin piece of diamond plate the same saze as the indentions of the 3x3 square but think that might look goofy any ideas let me know. Thanks

no I have the edge on my dash and it pretty much does the same thing. I knew a lot of guys that had the aeroforce on their lightning. I was going to put one on my pillar but I never spent the money. but i was just thinking why cover up the hole when you could put something useful there? I think diamond plate would look out of place unless you have some sort of theme with it. otherwise I would cover it with plain black plastic.
