Recovering dash panels & custom D90 dashes

As part of my D90 rebuild I'm converting to LHD, have all the dash panels but as there ex-mod & 80's vintage the vinyl is pritty battered & going brittle.

Has anyone recovered the dash themself or had it done ? Pics ?

Other option is a custom aluminium dash, have quite a few pic's of ones in challenge & comp vehicles but not any from daily drivers that have kept the heating & fresh air ventilation usable for daily driving.

Anyone got pic's..... suggestions ?

I looked at the custom route; and it just ended up being too much cost/effort. If you're doing the lower cowl and the upper top, many leather upholstery shops could cover them for you; I believe it's called 'wrapping'. I'm going to have to do the same for a Series III that I'm working on at the moment. The vinyl on that one has turned to brittle plastic.

I don't have any pictures but I have seen the stock dash rapped with leather. It looks pretty good. You can still get the upper dash pads but the lowers are hard to find as well as the inside light grey trim piece.
