The year of your vehicle would be helpful.

***edit*** -- I see in another of your questions it's a '70.

Re: restoring dash

Sounds like the original light shield gaskets. To block extraneous light and to fill the small gaps, a ring with polyester foam was used between the cardboard light shields and the dash part assembly. These deteriorated over the years, just leaving a paper ring, if that.

You may have to improvise something.
