Hey everyone as you can see in the images attached I have a crack in my dash and have pulled it off ready to glue.

My question is what would be a good adhesive to use I was thinking of using super glue or should I go for a plastic adhesive but yer let me know if thats wise or not.
Thanks alot in advance
cheers

go to the wreckers and get a new one it would be far easier than trying to glue it

varies
get a new one. glue jobs on dash trim look crud, even if you do it neat and vinyl dye to try and hide the crack....

why is that ebay dash sold as an "SS" dash? yunno, for a car with std fog lights...

dont glue it mate, mine cracked in the same spot and gluing it together was the cheap option at the time. looks terrible mate i had to go buy another one couldnt stand looking at it. plus it just finds the next week spot and cracks there. so make it +4 and getting a new one!! :D

Agree with everyone else.just buy another. Unless,this is the other option is to glue with q-bond which is like plastic weld in a bottle & damn strong.Then give a light sand,primer & paint in whatever color you like to make the car different & hide any visible crack lines. Alternatively i do have a complete genuine Vx SS Silver 3 piece set for sale
