I was very unhappy today to find that my seemingly perfect interior has a flaw. I found a couple spider cracks in the dash just above the guage cluster. My first thought was to throw a dash cover over it, but I was wondering if there was any less tacky way to conceal/slow the damage? Maybe someway to seal the serface?

Thanks,
Collin

there was a thread awhile back when some guy did his cracked burgandy dash. got that leather repair kit. sanded it down. let the repair kit do it's magic. and he repainted it with some krylon fusion black. and it came out SEXY AS HELL!! he did a good write up i believe. i just can't find it.

:EDIT: i have pictures. give me a few minutes to set them up. i hope he doesn't get mad.

















there you go...

cure ... get a new dash
I'm finding it to be a little difficult to find one in better shape than mine, ignoring the crack. All the others have various other flaws making mine still look better. I'm sure I'll find one eventually and swap them out.

There are places that can repair auto interiors. Leather, vinyl etc. Search google, there's plenty of them. I haven't been to one yet due to repair other things here and there.

dude that's what PMs are for.. why are you going off topic?! :stickpoke


as far as that permatex repair kit goes, I didn't like it on my Mk3 burgundy dashboard... It's a PITA and it never looks right. I ended up buying a new dash from the dealer but it was the last burgundy one in the country and it was back in 1999. I heard they were discontinued in almost all colors. It was like $600. If you've got the $ a new one would be best. If not then yeah try to look for a professional business that does interiors. You're going to go through all the hassle of pulling the dash, fixing with that permatex crap, painting and reinstalling only to have it crack somewhere else and have to do it all over again.

do it right the 1st time or do it again later.

The other dude is right. This is what PMs are for, but since some other guys may be interested now, upgraded rotors won't make 2 shits of a difference without better pads. The reason that I went with the brembo rotors is because they are much less likely to warp or burn under hard braking. If you look under my mod list again you will also see that i am using PBR/Axxis Ceramic pads, which do make a HUGE difference. They are a little dead when cold, but once warm they grab hard and the car stops stops on a dime. I've hit them hard at 140mph without any problems.
