How did you go about restoring the dash? Looks good

Took me almost a week to do the job, i removed the dash from the car and then ground and cut all the loose plastic and flattened all the cracks.
Then I filled the missing pieces with fibreglass matting and epoxy filler, sand and fill about 4 times until it looked smooth.

Then sprayed the dash with bedliner and lightly sanded it back to get the dimple effect of the original material and then sprayed it again with satin black. I still have to add the brushed silver strip.

It is by no means perfect and if you stand close you will notice that it's not original but it certainly a lot cheaper that get it recovered from scratch.
