Custom Metal Fab Work.............

I'm looking at taking the factory cup holder outta my 96 Dodge 3500. It's the one that slides in the dash above the factory radio. I wanna remove it, and have a nice piece of metal cut to fit in the opening that uses the same 2 mounting screws. I wanna put 4 toggle switches in it for various items. I have tried to make the piece, but I cant get the curves right, I dont have the proper tools for it. I can remove the cup holder and mail it to anyone that can make this panel for me........................

Anyone wanna tackle this project???????

I will get a pic of the cupholder and the open hole later today.....the metal piece dont need to be very think, just thick enough to hold 4 toggle switches in place......like street sign or license plate thickness soi its relatively strong......
