Just wondering if anyone could give me some advice, I have the Nova Glareshield and have mounted the switches to the plexi backing using a small flat head screw however this is not exactly flush so when I add the top finish panel its a bit raised, I havent' seen this problem from pics on the internet, Has any had this same issue and left it or is there a different way to mount the switches... I am really trying to aviod making the holes any bigger for fear I may break the panel or make the whole too big.

Thanks,

Mark

You need to countersink the holes a little further until the screwhead sits flush against top the backer. Once done the nova panel will sit flat. The best way to do it is by hand, go nice and slow. *Dont use a drill as you will just shatter the plastic*

You can contersink by using a larger drill bit or by using a proper conuntersink bit available at any hardwarestore.
