dashboard cover

Has anyone here ever used one of the dashboard covers that are made of molded plastic to fit over your cracked dash? I have a 2000 dodge 2500 truck and the dash is starting to crack from the front to the rear. Dealer will not do anything except try to sell me a new one( 400.00) plus 400.00 installation. So the 130.00 molded plastic one from genosgarage.com seems like the way to go if it looks ok....thanks oren

i haven't used one, but i have seen one installed on a dash, if intallation is good it works. much cheeper than the factory dash, also check with a local body shop. they install new dashes when repairing wrecks all of the time. might get a better price that way.

I would think one of those spray paints made for plastic would be the paint to use. Make sure the piece is clean first!
