How can you repair a cracked dashboard?
I have an old car I'm trying to restore. Many parts are available and some are not. The dashboard is plastic and deteriorating. I've spend days and days trying to find a replacement, but they too are deteriorating. Is there a way to professionally repair cracked, aged plastic on a dashboard?
That dash consists of a vinyl fabric over a foam padding. Sunlight, excessive cleaning and incessant slathering with protectant can leach all the vinyl-chloride plasticizer out of the vinyl—which then gets brittle and cracks. Eastwood (eastwood.com) has a repair kit that will let you make a pretty good repair if the crack is small, especially if it’s in an unobtrusive place. Unfortunately, odds are the vinyl will crack elsewhere fairly soon. The only real cure is to recover or replace the entire dash, which is neither simple nor cheap.
