+1 on the thanks. I gave up on these scripted shows with the made up drama years ago, but these two (despite the accents) were a joy to watch. A couple of lines had me laughing out loud.

Thanks for sharing. Has anyone done a dash like that? I know there are the plastic covers, but maybe covering it would be an easier solution?

I fixed my cracked dash the same way they did, but paid someone to do the fancy stitched vinyl cover. It has help up well for years, maybe 8 +/- and has no visible signs of the crack. The stitches look fantastic in my opinion. It’s a small detail that adds lots of aesthetic value.

I should add that I tried to stitch the cover myself, but had no luck at all. Getting nice curved lines, without buckling the vinyl is not easy. I probably made three before deciding to pay the local expert.
