Looking for used 1970 Chevelle SS lower dash housing

I'm looking for anyone or a good source who may have a used good condition 1970 Chevelle SS lower dash housing with no cracks, deep scratches and or gouges . My lower dash housing is cracked and I have sent photos to two top of the line restoration companies who say they can't make the repairs to their or my satisfaction. I have all the original gauges, ash tray, radio and glove box door etc. which I will swap out with the used dash when I send it out for restoration. So I don't not need any gauges. I do not want to use a repo dash because my Chevelle is about 90% original. The color of my dash is black which is preferable but not absolutely required. Anyone with information on a dash or source for a dash will be greatly appreciated.

Have you contacted Dan (RealRed70) yet? He does amazing work. He sometimes has "spare" parts. He did my dash pad and it turned out excellent. The pictures of his restored /repaired dash and consoles are top notch.

I have been in touch with Dan. I need to send him more detailed pictures for him to take a second a second look. It's expensive to send the dash and return it if it's not repairable. About $75.00 each way. He was not one of the two restoration companies that I mentioned that they wouldn't repair the dash.

Re: Looking for used 1970 Chevelle SS lower dash housing

Jay, when I was building my '70, I was in the same position, a dashboard that was scratched, drilled out and a few pieces missing. I wanted to restore and keep my original '70. After much research and calls and getting rediculously high prices, I decided to buy one, I went through Aussley's out in Carlisle and bought one for $300.00, it fit in perfect. Just what I did.
