Question Cracks on dash

I have two small cracks that showed up this summer on the padding above the glove box, is there an easy fix or atleast a way to keep them from spreading?

I have the same problem. I've thought of bondo, but that section of dash is flexible. So I have no idea.

@Raul:
Except that I'm talking about an area the size of a dime. Seems like one could repair that much easier/cheaper than a whole overlay.

I would think some glue than can be sanded down then painted might work?

It is made out of vinyl I'm pretty sure, you could pull that off and re wrap it, or you could get some kind of rubber cement that can be colored and find a way to make it match your pattern,

I work for a company called Dent Wizard. I believe we do that stuff but not 100%..Im in the PDR side and still in training but they were talking today about how they know a guy that can do that and it looks immaculate. Not sure if he was talking about one of our employees or not. Maybe give them a call?

Canadian tire has a vinyl repair kit not sure were it is in teh store. One time i see it its in the automotive area the next its in some other area of the store. Any pace you have around like hardware stores should have it. Its used in both fixing furniture and automotive

Either try to find a replacement from a wrecker, or look for a vinyl repair place in your area.

You might be able to get some vinyl from a fabric store and heat/glue/stretch it onto the part with it out of the truck. Spray dye afterwards to get the color to match. I did that years ago on an ATV seat (except no color change.)
