"Beauty Cover" for the steering column

Hey guys, I have an 80 Wagoneer.

The plastic beauty cover disintegrated in the Arizona heat, do the 60's FSJ's have a nicer looking ring that sits around the column where it meets the dash? Something metallic?

I've googled a few times but with mixed results.

60's steering column and dash opening are too small compared to 80's.

Wouldn't be terribly hard to roll your own bezel.
If you have the patience for that sort of thing.

Our local library has a very nice 3d printer now.
That could be an option for you, I hear it's fairly common now days.
