Where to find OG radio delete plate?

I've got a '73 roundie with a retrofitted Blaupunkt radio, but I can't quite get it wired properly. I'm wondering if it's worth the hassle at this point, and instead may just turn to a bluetooth speaker and play jams through my phone.

 

That said, does anyone know if there are 'delete plates' available or easily made to clean up the hole where typical radio would go?

 

Appreciate any help on this.

Delete plate? just remove from console, if it's the long console you're using.

 

Cool thing about the older Blaupunkts is the accessory port is the rear can connect directly to a phone (via a cord), no need to use bluetooth. Connecting to factory wiring is easy. there is a dealer how-to document posted on this forum. I figured it out, having never installed a car radio before.

I bet he could come up with something...? 

 

Also, do you have a pic of the center console area that you are looking to cover? A lot of different center console configurations...

Here’s a few pictures of my console. Any help with the wiring would be much appreciated—maybe I’ll take one more crack at the installation.

@joebarthlow any help on how you did the wiring based on how mine looks here?
