  • How to fix/conceal holes in dash/armwrest??

    I just installed a JL Blutooth adapter and removed the old Harmon Kardon ipod interface (installed by local dealer when boat was new) on my '06 X2. The old ipod controller joystick and display left some nasty holes in the dash and armrest.

    Any suggestions on the best way to fix/conceal those holes? Possibly a low-profile M/C badge or emblem which could be mounted to cover over the holes? Or could a profession vinyl repair
    be best solution?

    Thanks for any ideas!

    Repair to look good is unlikely but a classy badge to cover it up might work. Only $10 and 2 1/4 x 2 1/8 Inch.

    Same badges used on 2011 - 2013 MC windshields.

      Nasty scar, the badge will cover it up. Another option is a vinyl repair guy? Check with local car dealer for a good one.
      Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.

        Body clips

        Maybe not the best, but the best quick fix. Go to your local ace hardware and they have all kinds of these, some are 2". Otherwise you might check your local body shop.

          P.S. You don't have to put another hole in the dash, cut the tail off and use some double sided 3M tape. I'm not saying this is a perminant fix, just one till you find one better.

            Excellent ideas!

            I ordered a shield as a possible option for the boat dash. (and a 2nd one which may also find it's way to the back window of my tow vehicle). For the armrest, I'm thinking a low-profile solution may be desirable (such as Psgwake's suggestion... and a possible quality vinyl repair later in the off-season)

            I also just ordered one of these as a possible alternate dash option:


            If not in the boat... I -need- one of those for my desk...
