Mike and Alan,

>From the Concours Guidelines...

Early fascias were of a two-piece design, with the raised instrument
cluster a second
piece that could be removed to get access to the back of the instruments. A
black plastic
welting, similar to the welting used between bumpers and over riders (but
taller) was used
between the instrument pod and main fascia panel. When installing, this
welting must be
carefully trimmed on the inside to clear the mounting lugs. The black
plastic welting is
spliced directly above the steering column.

Just use a long strip of the same rubber that goes between the bumpers and
the overriders.
