Welcome to the forum!  I can't think of anyone making a repro, but we do have two great salvage guys on here that may know something.

Is it completely missing or just busted up?

Most folks have to fix them with a fiberglass kit. Basically on the cracked on, you put the mesh down then the resin. Push all the cracks up tight and let it all harden. Same thing for the busted one but it willl be harder to get all the pieces to stay together.

 

Hope this helps.

One of the guys here built a custom dash from steel.  It turned out pretty good, but I've yet to find it, but I will post the link if/when I do.

 I still lurk every once and a while.

 Yes, I fabed the dash from 16g steel, using a broken plasic one for a template.

Some of it was bent on a brake, the rest was welded.

 You can stand on it and jump up and down. Super strong. I made the lower dash out of steel too.
