Smile Pulled a very nice dash yesterday... suggestions

Pulled a very nice crack free dash yesterday from my local salvage yard. Was fairly easy since the instrument cluster, switches and climate control had already gone. This was from a 300D non turbo.

My question... this non turbo model had the idle adjustment control on the dash. Any suggestions on what I can do with the switch (still attached), or should I remove the switch and plug the hole so it will be cosmetically "proper" for my 300D Turbo model?

PS... Dash was $16, but wood trim was gone. Speakers and door of glove box were gone, but still had glove box, light and temperature sensor and all vents. Video CD from was extremely helpful... got it off in less than 1/2 hour! Hope it swaps onto mine as easily.....

Just put a red label around it that says "EJECT" and see if anyone notices.

Why not connect it up and use it for . . . an idle adjuster?

Maybe you could fit one of those small penut boost gages through the hole. Just run the boost pressure line through the hole and externall mount the gage flush with the dash.
