I have kicking around the idea for a few years myself.

Here is one that I think is really well done in an 83.

I found this thread last year, and it answered most of my questions about gauge, material, and so forth, as well as showcasing some of the more creative ideas and fab work involved.

I just looked at their web site.  They make some sweet stuff.  Just no dash for a 1st gen 4runner, too bad.
