'32 lower dash extension?

I'm wondering if any of you know if, and where I can purchase a lower dash extension panel (I suppose one might call it a skirt?) for the glass '32 3-window I'm building? I don't have any sheetmetal skills, or tools. I guess I could build one out of plywood, and then cover it with vinyl. I just hope there's already one available out there in the marketplace.

Thanks everyone

You could buy a aftermarket 32 dash and cut off what you need from the bottom and then attach it to your existing dash.

re:'32 lower dash extension

Saw a neat dash treatment in a '32 once....the guy built a shelf under the dash like the ones in a early S-10. A useful addition that covered up all the business under the dash.

Whoa, $129 bet I could build one from 1/4" MDF, glass cloth and resin for a lot less.

So could I but he said he had a skill level problem/tools discrepancy. Rod Doors stuff is way overpriced now - and from experience, lacking quality - which is why I dumped my "kit" at a very attractive price.
