De-cluttering the dash

I can't stand idiot lights and these were no exception. They were disconnected long ago and since I had made the opening for the double DIN sized Kenwood out of two existing holes, a regular DIN stereo and a CB, the fit and finish looked a little rushed.

Had some black leather I had skinned off an old couch that was headed for the dump so I removed all the lights, cut out my leather and with some 3M spray adhesive made this panel a lot less busy. I left enough leather on the inside of the double DIN opening to take up the slack left by the previous components and the result was a nice snug, rattle free panel.
