Dash repair

Previous owner had extra lights and switches. Now I have holes in the dash from where those were installed. Any ideas on how to patch and cover these? Other then replace the piece?

The top of the dash by the vents is cracking too and I'd like to fix that up. Ideas or products to use to fix that.

Thanks,
Alex

top dash pad is an easy replacement item.

for the lower holes, are they close enough together that you could cover them with a rover emblem ?

Lower holes are spaced out so that I can't cover them with anything. I did re-use one for my seat heat control but the others are too close to the steering column.

What I would do is go into a local dealership like LR, BMW, MB and ask them who does their interior repairs. I'm sure they would be willing to tell you how to contact him, or what day he usually comes in. These guys are usually happy to do some side work for people, but don't really advertise, so you have to know they exist and search them out. Anyway, it will probably take him about 20min and cost you $50-$100 but it'll look great! Generally, you will only see their repairs if you know they were there to begin with, they can even repair plastic and stamp it with the same texture to hide it.

Thank you. I just went through that with Audi and BMW when I returned my Audi and purchased a BMW. Brilliant idea! I have the card for the interior guy that BMW uses here.

I was in shock with what the wheel man did to my Audi wheels. They were fantastic.
