You know what might look nice in there? On the rh kick panel, the early cars had a gm dealer accessory that was a 2 inch waste bin, and they stopped offering them after the ecm in kick panel came out. Since your computer and holder are gone. Might fill that space nice and get rid of those holes?

Not at all, FWIW you got my vote in the monthly contest as I liked your use of the blue tones. I think it's well done and I don't think many people noticed those camaro type (or actual) gauges in the console that looked like a factory placement.

The rest of the interior is so seamlessly put together that those couple clips/holes in the ecm corner make it feel something is missing off the car though a little bit. Maybe if not a waste bin some the of vinyl/cloth covered panel down there? The plaid would look nice, but I know in the other thread you mentioned not having a lot left, and even with scotchguard it could be too dirty in the footwell

What would you want for that?

Much appreciated, they are the camaro gauges still not sure what to do there because I thought about trying to get them to match the Dakota's when I was putting them in but Dakota said it would be very pricey. Then thought about putting the air ride controller there but trying to integrate that into the head units if this stupid car dongle would ever get ironed out. So for the time being I have just left them unworking until I figure out what to do, my next plan is to go push button start and delete the traction control button to put it there. No you got me thinking, I do have enough to do it there. But already dealing with how dirty the carpet and floor mats are
Excuse me, Sir - would you like some car to go with your screen?
Naaah, all screen for some
avenue q GIF
As I was told by my side piece it would show very well there
