    Ok i have a question. Where do you get that front trim if it breaks on you? Stock or aftermarket. It doesnt matter.

    I was thinking maybe 'gorilla glue' instead of the epoxy?

    You'd have to sand it down again though... It expands, but not near as much as the foam gap filler..

    Thanks for posting this. I need to resto my own dash and have been looking at a lot of different ways and this looks great. I was thinking of covering with an automotive vinyl, but I may try this method first! Thanks for taking the time!

    At my local ACE Hardware they have small plastic caps that snap onto various size screw heads. You might try some of those if you want to hide the srews. I've only seen them in black but you should be able to paint them with vinyl paint to color match if you want to hide those silver screw heads. Just a thought.

    Thanks for the thread. Helpful thinking. We operate a small leather shop, and I intend to cover mine with upholstery leather.
