HI; ALL TRIM I HAD WAS USED IN RESTORING MY '41 HIGHLANDER/NEW YORKER, MY '42 WAS ALL ORIGINAL AND PERFECT. I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY SUCH DASH PLASTIC FOR SALE IN YEARS. TRY GOING TO THE HERSHY MEET THIS SPRING IN HERSHY PENN. 2ND OPTION IS THE CARYLE MEET IN THE FALL. I FOUND MOST OF MY DASH PLASTIC PIECES 20 YRS AGO THERE.
