I'm putting my 8 track back in and the holes were cut at some point. The right side hole is a bit too big so the 8 track wants to dip about a 1/16 of an inch on the right. I'm using the metal cup inserts and need ideas on how I can fix that right side hole so that the cup sits at the top of the hole. I thought about cutting out a round piece of material slightly smaller than the hole and using goop to glue it to the back side of the dash. I'll try to post pictures so you know what I am talking about. In the third picture which is a bit blurry, you can see that hole is slightly larger.

I would think that a two-part epoxy would bridge the gap and hold everything in place without any issue. I've used it to repair the broken mounting studs on newer mirrors, it holds pretty well unless they get hit again by a carwash or somebody hip checking them in a parking lot.
Do you have a support strap from the back of the 8 track to the metal frame of the dash? That should make the unit move less.

The L shaped bracket is attached to the back of the 8-track and that helps but it still wants to slide down to the bottom of the hole. It doesn't move much but figured it will when the car is back on the road. Since the dash is out, now would be the time to fix it. I'm not sure what a two part epoxy is. Is that something they sell at NAPA Auto Parts?
