Bill, I once made fiber-glass, exact replicas from a fiberglass mould I made up from a real steel nosing strip still hanging in my shop. After making about a dozen both for use without a padded dash, and for my own '65 with a padded dash top, I donated the mould to a customer that wanted to make more. He never made one.
Personally, this was too much like boat building for me, as exterior surface finish depended on the final application, as did stud installation and location. Plenty of auto body filler and sanding was required for different applications. This is all very time consuming and dusty work compared to the other work my customers wanted me to get done, and was not a good use of my time. I still have my steel nosing 101 assembly "just-in-case" I need another for my OWN car!
It's not hard to do, just not for me!
