Purchased a camera/LCD for mirror deletion, need recs

Hey all,
Been following for a while and have made much progress off your labors, so thanks!

I just purchased a 3.5" LCD [eBay# 110818388041] and wide angle camera [eBay# 190656429609] off eBay for a total cost of $41.72 shipped, hoping to delete my passenger mirror.

I plan to utilize the power from the power mirror (yes power!) that is already there and wire everything in and mount on the door.

My only question is recommendations on what to use to fill the hole where the mirror was? And possibly protecting the camera if wiring is exposed. I was thinking fiberglass, but I have no experience, plus it doesn't have to be pretty, just keep the water out and hold the camera in place. I am hoping not to modify the existing mirror, if it needs to go back on or I can't see well enough with the setup.

I have a decent amount of tools, so any recommendations are welcome
