    Thanks Ben, but shipping would probably be more expensive than just buying one haha.

    The deckplate just gives a cleaner "finished" look and allows you to seal it back up when offroading/fording/washing your engine bay. If you don't care about those things, you can just cut a hole without issue. I'd center it and cut a nice 4" circle so you could enlarge it to the shape of a deckplate should you desire to later.
