sBandit thanks for the details on modifying the panel. You just saved me some cash. It was easy and it looks perfect. I owe you a beer.

I'd love to take you up on that beer when I tour through CenCal, maybe this summer. Cheers!

Finally got around to completing this mod last night. It took a bit over an hour (I'm slow), but it was straightforward and I'm quite pleased with the result.

Thanks again for the instructions!

I used a couple of tools that were ill-suited for the task, but worked nonetheless: a hacksaw and a pocketknife.

I dislike dredging up old threads, but I asked this question in another thread and it went unanswered. The PO of my 2013 hacked up the battery panel and riveted in snaps for a naugahyde cover. Consequently, I've ordered the new battery cover panel.

My question is, can I remove and replace the new/modded battery cover while the center "gauge" panel is in place? I think the answer is yes and that's the whole point of the new panel, but I'd like to make sure.

Thanks in advance!

Yes rdu, upgraded panel pops off far easier than the original.
