Dash repair

I was at a car show a couple of weeks back and someone had a booth set up for leather and vinyl repair. Has anyone tried any of these systems or services? If so how did they work. I would like to clean up my dash area. I have some splits and a few bayonet holes in it. Any thoughts?

Abe I was just wondering about the same thing. I wonder how well they can get the dash vents to match. Almost seems like you need some kind of mold, but maybe it's not as hard as it seems. You going to bring a dash by them and see what they say?

When I was a kid I remember some dash repair kit that they sold on TV. IIRC you smeared on some goo and placed some wax paper looking thing that had texture on it so it would mold the goop to mimic the dash. 40 years later I would think that things have gotten better.

I was running out of time and didn't get the name of the company. I would like to see what they would say. Just one of those things that keeps popping into my mind once and a while.

kit

Dave,
That was probably a late night RONCO commercial next to the inside the egg shell egg scrabler, the record cleaner, the wine bottle cutter that turns your wine bottles into drinking glasses, etc. I remember that stupid commercial, I think it showed a womans hand applying the gue to the back of a puke brown vinyl sofa and then ironing it and presto. Good as new.

Try Eastwood's products, seems they have something for every project. I just read about a product that they have...sounds like what you're looking for. You can't own a LR without an Eastwood account.
