Whats up with my dash

Since I have been here in OK my dash has started cracking all over the place. Any ideas as to why. The gauges have been there for quite a while and have only recently started cracking.

Also does any one have a spare laying around!

its all that spilled soda or coffee that is on the cupholder and surrounding areas... :

maybe the heat??? i dont know. my truck gets pretty hot here and i have zero cracks.. how did you cut the holes for the guages?? are they a super tight fit?? if the holes werent cut with a hole saw, or made perfectly round, may have caused the cracks..

Its coffee.

I cut the hole's with my Dremmel but they are not tight fitting and the one at the vent has nothing to do with a hole.

If its been getting really hot there it can cause cracks especially if it gets cold quickly because the plastic expands in the heat and shrinks when it gets cold. If your using your A/C all the time it can cause it. If you lock it up in the daylight and get in and automatically turn on your A/C it can go from hot to cold really fast and crack. Thats the only thing I can think of.

None of those sound like they fit.
