Default Plastic forming, how would you build this?

It looks like they used the original vent frame. Maybe they put stretchy film over the left opening, and filled the bubble with bondo to make a male mold. Then epoxied the back side to make the pocket that the gauges mount into?

Any advice on how to build such a thing? Alternatively, I'm also thinking about an insert that fits in the vent hole rather than modifying the frame. I'm trying to fit my LinkPro in there, and keep it looking professional.
