Does anyone repop the center console lid for a buick? Does the olds one fit?

I have a console out of a 78 sport coupe missing the lid. I know montes and cutlasses are re-popped but I don't see buick ones available.

Olds is too small for any of the others.

I dont like them either but thats it

The one good thing about the Buick console lid is that it is simple

Just a rectangle

A piece of plywood with some foam and vinyl and you're good to go

And a hardware store long hinge. (Piano hinge?)
Maybe a little string to prevent over extension. Or the arms off a srawer style metal tool box lid.
