Yes, I will paint it on glass.

 

The dash has this parts starting from the top one - metal cover / glass / metal / instruments case. The numbers are painted on back of the glass between the 2 metal pieces as in picture.

1. metal cover (light brownish)

2. glass with numbers on its back

3. metal piece (dark brown)

4. instruments

 

I will paint using serigraphy printing technique (also known as screen printing). But for this I have to give the printing specialist a digital drawing of the pattern - they use usually Corel Draw program.

I've no ideea about how much it will cost. Shouldn't be very expensive, though.

I'll let you know about the price. Making more sure will reduce costs, but shipping...hmm. I can't figure how I would wrap and protect it in a package to be safe.

My opinion is this is to be done locally and avoid shippind 2mm thin glass...

this is what I've ended up with for the dash restoration - cost 20 euros;

(image shows the test glass, the final one is not completely dry; it's the same, but without the black marker on left hand side and the blurred "-" on the lower right)
