Default Anybody want to build my custom Jeep dash for me?

I am trying to build a custom dash for my YJ, and could probably do it myself, but it would take me a lot of time, and I am sure that someone on here could do this much better!! This is what I am thinking, if you could put the holes in for the stereo and the gauges that would be great, but if not I would be happy with just the structure being built for me. I plan on building the console, so I would only need the dash portion built. I would bring the metal dash and the cardboard mock-up to you, so you could just copy it.
If you can not do this but know someone in the metro area that can, that would also be appreciated. I am not against driving a couple hours to get this done, if you are not in the Detroit area also.
Thank you in advance.

Well, lets think this out..

1. Speedo
2. RPM
3. Oil Pressure
4. Trans temp
5. Coolant
6. Volts.
7. Fuel
8. EGT (DieselYJ Screen name implies this may be a factor)
9. Boost (see above)
10. Oil Temp
11. Air Shock Gauge Front?
12. Air Shock Gauge Rear?

ok guys cut me some slack, I worked over 6 hours just to get all the cardboard mocked up, and I was so excited to be done, I got a little carried away with the circles. I am actually only going to be putting 7 gauges in that center section. The tach and speedo will go on each side of the steering wheel, like a YJ.

Hey, no hard feelings here, just wanted to make sure that if someone was planning on doing the work, that they knew that there would not be that many gauge holes :)

have you drawn it folded flat to determine the amount of breaks, pierces welds. Will it be painted or polished?

I have not drawn it flat, I built it like you see it. I am sure that I could flatten it out, so i could do that. I am planning on just covering the entire dash with 3M carbon fiber sticker.

I would like to do it myself, but I am sure that it would take way to much time, and I want to get this jeep back on the road, by spring!!
I guess I will start with the couple of places suggested, and go from there.
