Just wanted to thank OP for this DIY. Finished the installation this morning. The images indicating where to cut were the key to success.

I had considered going with a compass/UGDO/auto-dim mirror, but after trying to use auto-dim from the junkyard I realized my harness is only wired for security blinking the clown nose. I don't mind doing some rewiring, but the TIS for harness conversion did not thrill me with its 2 hour estimate for a professional shop, and I ain't no professional.

I also managed to score the UGDO unit from junkyard really cheap, so cutting plastic cover was a much easier, and less expensive approach. I will need to apply some silicone caulk or Automotive Goop around the UGDO, it's not a perfect snap-in fit, but a little silicone will go a long way to keep it from sagging and rattling.
