Console filling tips!

I have finally found the replacement engine of my dreams!
However, the engine comes with Quicksilver remotes. I currently have a metal Ultraflex box mounted on the side of my console, which I shall need to remove. However, this will leave me with a number of holes, including a 3/4 inch one where all the cables etc go through. I will need to move this hole to accomodate the new kit. I was just wondering how I can fill/finish the existing holes, so that it looks half decent.
Any photos of Quicksilver installations on the sides of consoles would also help so I can plan my new layout.

Well i had a lovely big hole in the side of my console, thanks go to the guys at Midland Marine who 'forgot' we were having a single split light on the console....

In the picture you can just see the 2 screws that are screwed into a piece of aluminium on the inside of the console holding the patch secure. The patch was just a disc cut out of the same plastic glued in and suported with this aluminium.
