have ran across a similar deal. '69 GTO racecar builder took a '69 LeMans/GTO plastic dash asm cover, then cut out two partial holes where his front rollcage hoop front bars came through. Then he took his time with a small diamond pattern thin expanded metal & trimmed & fit multiple pieces for support, rivetting this new mesh structure together. Last, he taped off the edges of the plastic cover, gauges holes, & shot an expandable foam on the back side, then trimmed everything with a razor blade. Was told he saved 7 lbs, & honestly it looked pretty good.
