Best solution for cracked dash pad.

Read all the archives but still havn't seen much on the dash pad covers. Didn't see one in Palican Parts. Whale Tail up here in Canada has them and I saw one he did in a 86 944. Looked real nice and original. Anyone else do one and what problems did you have. My other alternative is to recover with some material. Did a dash 15 years ago with some real nice stuff. Hard to get perfect but showed well.

Dash covers will not last; quality differs, but a lot will warp / discolor. The "best" solution is to recover yours although that may be expensive. If you need to go with a dash cover, expect it to only last a year or two at most. It'll buy you some time though.

My dash cover is atleast 6 years old and still looks great and hasnt lost any color either. It maybe be older cause it was already on the car when I purchased it.
