Default Hiding a microphone in plain sight

I'm looking for a way to mount a telephone microphone that looks OEM. Ideally, I'd like to find a simple vent cover or very small flush mount tweeter that can be clipped into a hole drilled in the plastic of an overhead console.

Here's a picture of the console:


The microphone is very small, maybe 3/8" wide or so. Any suggestions on a simple way to hide it? BMW uses something like this:


I don't need something anywhere near that size. Just a round cover like a flush mounted tweeter, only a lot smaller. Would love to hear some suggestions.

A lot cars use these so you may be able to fine one in the right color at an auto recycler(wrecker)
Just use the case or the whole thing if it works for you.

Window pillar on the drivers side is a popular place for mics as well, you can demel a few slots on both pillars so they match

Have you considered an OEM Ford one from something around 2011? They were about .75x 2.5" and clipped into the headliners.

Excellent, thanks to both of you for the suggestions. It looks like the mic adsm refers to is the one made by Peiker that RonD mentioned. I'll start looking around for one. I don't care that much about the color as I can always spray it to match.
