EDIT: success! I have the exact same clamp as they do in the pictures. However, my cotton rags didn't give enough grip. I used those anti-slip shelf/drawer liners and doubled up on the layers. It still left a bit of imprint on the rubber of the dials but you can't really notice them once they're re-inserted

It looks amazing in the light against the matte black vinyl (even though with my phone camera it looks otherwise) that I did for the trim cover; but there's light leakage in the dark that is very noticeable looking =\. This is especially noticeable pictures 3-5.
I think it's suppose to have the light ring ("leakage"). I'm just going to paint them in (from the inside) besides the indicator notch.
