    What is the procedure to remove the dash board off of an 82 blazer (What Screws). Mine has to many cracks. Also does any one know of any filler to fix the cracks, and still look good?

    There are 4 (I think) screws along the bottom edge of the vinyl part on the pass side. You have to remove the gage bezle....lots of screws around the edges. You'll have to pull the radio knobs, headlight knob( there's a trick for that one too). Pull the bezel out of the way and the dash will pull off towards the seats....there are some clips on top of the dash that just slide out of their holes. You may have a screw on the very ends of the dash also. Just keep unscrewing and pullin' til it comes off. A new pad or a Coverlay is about the only good solution.

    Yeah, I'd be interested if there is anything I could use to fill the cracks on the dash and still look good. I was thinking about some kind of epoxy but wasn't sure if that would flex due to the heat. I didn't want to buy a new dash pad. Basically, I just wanted to fill the cracks and then paint the dash with vinyl paint. Anyone out there ever done that?

    Every once and a while, I see this stuff in the parts store (in the fuzzy dice and cell phone holder section) that's supposed to repair rips in vinyl seats etc. It looks like it may work on a dash. Anybody tried the stuff?? Mine's not cracked (yet).
