Instrument Panel Replacment '87 S10

I purchased a 1987 S10 with a 350 already installed. I want to replace the factory gauges with Autometer units. Does anyone know if there is a aftermarket panel made for a 1987. Jegs has one for '82-86. I have looked everywhere, Dakota Digital makes one, I want the muscle truck look,dont need pretty. If anyone can help, I would appriciate it very much

I had a spare cluster, so I gutted that one and mounted the new face to it and then just used the factory mounting locations.
