Default OEM CSL Console Question

For those of you that have the OEM CSL console;

Did you...1... get a plug of some sort for the mirror adjustment hole?
Did you...2... put a (dummy) switch in?
Did you...3... plug your current switch then rewire the mirror adjustment switch in?

I chose to plug mine. Regardless if you plan on Plugging or moving the mirror switch to the center you'll need to order the parts. If you need the part numbers or the DIY on how to move the mirror adjustment to the console feel free to shoot me a PM.

I had mine plugged up but switched it out when I added the CSL door panels. I have the black cover if you need it, just pm me.

Would you mind posting a picture of your plugged console? After getting absolutely raped on the last part I had to install, I'm going the DIY route whenever possible.

Its a V-CSL rep. I never noticed the weave being off till that picture. It was a cell shot and I'm to lazy to go inspect it right now to check if it infact looks like that.

Previous owner drilled it. I like it because now the tray area is allowed to be lit. Looks great at night.

Do you have a part number for the plug and the surrounding piece? You have PM.
