Default X-change Dittel for Becker

I currently have a Dittel mounted at the bottom of the stack. I would like to replace it with a Becker. Is there an "adaptor" to change the mounting hole from the square Dittel to the round Becker?

Default X-change Dittel for Becker

I've never seen such a thing, but it might not be too much work to
simply remove the panel, remove all of the switches and instruments, and
plug the square hole with fiberglass or carbon.* Then cut a new round
hole and remount the things you removed.* Except for the cure time on
the resin, it should be less than a day's work.

Good luck!

This will convert either an old rectangular radio hole, or
with the bigger plate convert an 80mm / 3.125" hole.
To contact the seller, first go to the main site, use the
English button and register (free) to be able to use the
site.
