I removed a B&M shifter from the floor and went back to an Ididit column automatic. Looking for opinions as to fixing the ugly cut-out with a fiberglass patch or a piece of stainless that I have laying around. It was a heat shield off a Yukon and I would have to cut and hammer to size. Affixed with rivets and sealant I assume?

Steel - makes a much better job in the end.

maybe another option maybe plain steel and cutting to size followed by hammer welding and seam sealer top and bottom.

Got a piece of stainless welded in. Solid. Now it won't sound like a corvette when you knock on it.
