How To Restore and Flock a Cracked Dashboard

Is your dash in need of a complete restore? Here are some of the steps to take when restoring and flocking your dash:
  • If there are any cracks in the dash you will want to cut away the material in a "V" shape. Doing so will allow any filler to make a smooth surface. 
  • Sand down the entire dashboard 
  • Wipe down the surface with acetone
  • Fill the cracks with Fiber glass resin Jelly. (We used the Bondo kit)
  • Let Bondo sit for at least 20 hours
  • Use an orbital sander and sand until the surface is completely smooth
  • Wipe off the surface
  • Apply flock adhesive 
  • Apply flocking material
  • Gently blow off leftover material with air
If you want to restore cracks in your dash, use Bondo fiber glass resin jelly found HERE
