89 TriStar Dash needed

Complete restoration of our 1989 TriStar 190.
Everything is going along smoothly until we removed the dash.
The plastic form behind the vinyl is beyond repair.
Anyone have a new one? (Lol). How about best way to get one made?
Very much appreciated!

Not sure where the thread is, but there was one member on here who, I think, peeled the vinyl off and basically repaired the dash form with fiberglass and bondo. A few pictures of the back would help, but I can't imagine it couldn't be repaired- may take some time and patience, but layers of fiberglass and resin should add plenty of strength to it. Just take care to not get any on the vinyl front.

Thanks for that advice.
The bottom curve that is under the wheel is completely powder so we are going to have to make that curved area from scratch. Wish we could find a good one somewhere.
Fiberglass is probably the best way to go so we will do that. Cheers!
