Try Frank's Pontiac. He has many parts. He has dash parts, so he may be able to help with the panel as I am sure that is not something that is normally that rotted out. I would contact/email him. GTO, LeMans & Tempest

Where are you located? Are you sure it can't be fixed?

Have removed the dash close out panels (down into the cowl) out of 4door parts cars quite a few times, then built a mini crate and shipped them out. Even in VERY ARID environments, I'd expect the near 50 year old metal to have some rust pinholes in the corners, if not worse. The water thin laquer paint didnt provide much corossion prevention In his rust pronearea, condensation will get to it. Early this morning moved a complete dash cutout from a '72, I cut it out nearly 20 years ago. Been indoors, hanging off the red iron, will still take a good 3-4 hours worth of work breaking it down and metal finishing just to get to the donor metal relacement state, and that's with a good spread of spot weld bits, air tools, and the MIG.
