Repairing Dash pad brackets

So I dropped the dash pad and snapped off two of the brackets that hold it on to the dash? Any repair ideas or am I out of luck? I was thinking of maybe fiberglassing new brackets on?

Yow! That bites. I agree fiberglass or maybe try JB Weld first. It'd be a good repair thread.

Cleaned up some of the rust and figured out what is behind the tabs. I'm thinking a couple of screws and JB weld might do the trick.
