that also gave me the same idea but I took the vents out and sent them to Road trip essentials. they are going to fit an ABS plate inside and color match the plate and vent surround to my bike Then I'll mount my heated gear plugs to the left side and switches for my driving lights in the right one. I also removed the inside air vents themselves - gave me some addition room back therethat is just what I was talking about. A very neat install.
I wonder what the backing plate is made of and how was it installed?
Nice job everyone and thank you very much for your help.
