I am in a similiar boat, sent my dash to him, it wasn't even in that bad of shape, just some light cracking. But I haven't been able to get him either. Talked to him a bunch a few weeks ago, but not able to get a hold of him for the last week or so. I knew he was not doing great, I hope he is OK. Btw, how is the dash from TRF?

As far as the metal pieces, I pulled mine off the back and can give you the dimensions if that helps.

Let me know, or I know of a few TR dismantlers, and I am sure they can sell you those parts.

Guys-
I'm new, and had a question about removing (and installing) the veneered wooden fascia. Is it possible to do this by just removing the front five screws. or must every guage be disconnected from the rear first. In which case, does anyone have nay tips for unscrewing the (stuck) knurled tach cable from the back of the guage?

The gages have to be disconnected. The spedo and tach are clamped to the metal support also. On these you can gain slack by disconnecting the cables under the hood first. Then remove the post clamps. They should then be able to pull out far enough to remove the cables with them in front of the dash.
Dash removal is not difficult but it is not a five minute job either.
