I think the "well nuts" are a fine idea.  I used simple grommets out of my 
grommet kit to give my panel some cushion, but as Mark said, A well balanced 
engine kind of negates the vibration that tends to kill instruments.  The 
biggest issue in the past calling for the use of rubber mounting bushings in 
aircraft was to protect the jeweled bearings in the mechanical gyros.  Not many 
of us use mechanical gyros anymore.  Never-the-less, I like having a little 
cushion or movement available for the panel.  Maybe I'm just too old school to 
give it up.
