Today I’m restoring an old cracked dash from a 1987 Toyota Pickup Truck using the following steps:
– grind the cracks into a V groove with a dremel
– enlarge vent openings
– fill cracks with long strand bondo
– fill smaller areas with regular bondo
– sand smooth
– apply adhesive to vinyl and dash
– wrap vinyl over dash
– trim excess vinyl
