I replaced a Westerbeke 8.0 BCDT generator with a Westerbeke

Customer Question

I replaced a Westerbeke 8.0 BCDT generator with a Westerbeke 8.0 BTDA generator and the control panel is half the size of the control panel of the previous unit. What would you suggest I use to cover the 3x3 1/2 inch hole? Thank you. Mike Fritz
