how about a piece of plastice that fits over that but check this with carbonfiber on the face side now that would be bad ass and for kicks put it on a hinge there that is my brilliant idea for today and i waste it on you
have you ever seen the Lokar Motorsports Integra integra? I'm about to do a center console mod like they have (with the two guages) but I'm going to use carbon fiber and a couple of switches. If you could get a piece of sheet metal or carbon fiber behind that AFC that would look bad ass!! Just a suggestion from someone who is about to be doing something similar.
