Confused 67 Brown Dash Pad?

Need some advise on replacing my dash pad. I have a 67 with saddle interior and a brown dash. It looks like the production numbers were very low on this color, so no reproductions are available in brown. See questions below:
1) Best source for replacement dash (fit, grain, quality) - Scott Drake?
2) Is black best color for dying brown?
3) How to prep for dying?
4) Best source for the brown dye?
4) Should I dye after installing or before?

Note: I tried unsuccessfully a few year ago dying a black dash, and the paint flaked off during installation. I had a local shop perform the surface prep and dye and the same thing happened on the second attempt.

Thanks for the help!

I've seen a couple manufacturers when searching online that make dash pads in "natural" which would be my choice, or white if I couldn't find a natural one.

Mustangs to Fear is coming out with a fiberglass dash pad, they can be painted or covered in vinyl for a stock appearance. I don't know if they are in production yet though.

You need something like this?


Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

Wonder if they'll meet the energy absorbing spec? LOL.
