cracks in dashboard

My 1982 Suburban had a cracked dashboard worse than that. I ended covering the whole thing using automotive carpeting. I can take pictures if interested. It looks very good. You can try filling the cracks but it'll always be noticeable. You might also be able to find a reproduction dash pad if it's available for this type of car.

I did see a couple of nice used dash pads on e-bay. But you can get a really nice custom fit carpeted dash mat very reasonable.

Here are the pictures of the covered dashboard from my 1982 diesel Suburban. The dashboard had major cracks in it so I covered it using automotive carpeting from Home Depot. I used contact cement and Liquid Nails and the whole job took me about 3 hours. It has been nearly 13 years since I covered the dashboard and I have driven the truck over 100k miles and through 46 of 50 states. The truck interior was very noisy and all the carpeting helped quiet things down.
