[ROVERNET - UK] Vinyl???Dashboard Cover?

No, there isn't a tooth fairy and yes, the dash is
vacuum produced vinyl.
I have been experimenting with metal epoxy glue like
"JB Weld".  I tried 2 approaches afterwards. I used
that vinyl repair stuff with texture paper and a heat
applied metal thing.  That did not turn out well so I
scraped it off, cleaned the dash of past shiny
materials and reprayed with a black vinyl paint.  That
turned out better.

I did buy some black leather ($$$$$$) and tried to
cover a really damaged top.  The jury is still out on
the looks of that.  Perhaps it would look better if a
leather craftsman did it.

Best wishes,
