    Replace it, not being a wiseass - There really isn't a good method for fixing that much damage to a vinyl dashpad. Most repairs are meant for small tears etc. Anything longer than an inch, Get a new one, or, get a dashmat to cover it

    i believe you can buy a plastic cover to go over it you just put some glue on the edges and let it dry it all comes together my 69' gto was pretty bad and thats what i did and it looked brand new when i was done with it and you could never tell it was just a cover

    i bought a dash cap, which covers the entire dash, for my 80 formula. . . its just a plastic cover that goes over the existing dash. much cheaper than buyin a new dash pad. most of the time, tryin to fix it would be like polishin a turd. if its already cracked, mostly like it is weak/dry in other areas and will crack more.

    Well if this is a car that the aftermarket doesn't offer a reproduction dash for then I would send it to "Just Dashes"

    They can completely recover the dash using the same injection/pressure molding that the OEM manufacture used, and they duplicate the factory patterns etc....

    It's the only way to go on a classic car in my opinion, especially anything worth money.

    Yeah i was thinkin about sending it to them but the car really isn't worth it. $$$
    I'll try and find a cover but i have my doubts.

    Are you talking about the dash on the Cutty?

    If so place a dash mat over it and call it a day.
