Dash pad replacement?

I have noticed that you can buy about every piece of the dash except the pad part that always cracks on our trucks. Mine is getting really bad and would love to just replace it. It unbolts easy enough I thought from the back of the dash, why won't they make a replacement piece? I don't like the whole dash plastic cover things and no I don't want to cover it in some off the wall fabric like I've seen on here before. I have thought about cutting the vinyl off and fiberglassing the whole thing, just don't know how that would turn out.

Anybody ever successfully repaired or found somebody that makes replacement pieces? Originals out of junk yards or something are near impossible to find in good shape and the right color.

Yeah that's the one I'm talking about.

Mine is the light blue color. I've mostly just looked at LMC several times through the years, and they offer almost every piece but that one.
