lol I did this repair on my 76 Mercury capri back in 83… only I jumped straight to Bondo and used a can of rustoleum… used a piece of vinyl with texture and pressed it into the primer to match the original dash then sprayed it plack a few times… cost me less than $10 and looked great!

you can use less expensive products like, a polyester body filler, a cheap can of spray bed liner,for texture, rubbing alcohol, to clean and .99 cent flat black spray paint. cost is less than 20.00.

I'm officially impressed! Nice to find a product to save the dash of old cars that may not have the after-market following of others. Unfortunately, this product is not inexpensive, nor is their little "airless welder" a drop in the bucket. About $35 for the rods and nearly $200 for their "airless" welder. Ends up costing about the same as a new dash. I'll go new, when able. Good sell until I did a bit of research on pricing.

Wow, didn't realize you could repair those. That saves me time (and money) looking for a maroon '86 Vic dashboard…

I gotta be honest, that's alot of work and I'm sure the products are expensive. If I have to remove the dash anyway, I'll just have it vinyl or leather wrapped, probably cheaper.
