For the ones with a cracked dash. I saw that Rockauto is carrying a custom molded dash cap/cover with all the factory trim colors for $96.79. Just look up your year of car, then look under interior, dash board cover. Made by Coverlay. I don't need one(yet)but it looks good.

I actually purchased the molded dash cover from Coverlay Mfg about 4 months ago. The fit is great, and only requires a little triming around the vent holes. The instructions tell you not to put the silicone adhesive on the middle of the cover but I found this to be a problem, the middle will lift up. Other than that to me its a great product. The price is much better than what I paid getting it directly from Coverlay $135.00.

Mine has been fine for over 10 years, but then the car is usually garaged when not being driven. I has stood out in the sun for extended times when I occasionally take it to work and while on road trips.

Got mine installed a couple weeks ago. I'm satisfied for what I paid for it. The fit isn't perfect, but is pretty dang good IMO. The color is listed as "dark blue" but it's obviously not dark blue. Guess I could have spray canned it before installation, but it's not bad. Overall opinion...nice piece for $100
