IS300 (series 1 - 2002) New Dashboard Needed

Recommended Posts

Hello 

I'm the proud owner of a Series 1 IS300. Best car I've ever had by far. 

It's only done 25K miles and I'm bringing it back to showroom condition. The only other owner somehow managed to damage the top of the dash so it has scratches and some grooves in the plastic and a nasty stickyish feel on the passenger side airbag lid that just won't come off. I'm thinking the best solution would be to just replace the dash. 

Would anyone know where I might get one and who is a good Lexus restoration company to do it? I'm based in the North West of England.

Thanks so much for any help and guidance

Hi Graham. 

Agreed, lovely cars. Can't help you source a dash I'm afraid (same as the IS200? considered a plastic repair?) but the sticky finish is unfortunately normal. It's just the plastic deteriorating, my IS300 is starting to do the same.

Thanks Rich

Yes, I'm sure an IS200 dash would be the same. As far as I know, the interior of the IS300 and IS200 is largely the same (save all leather etc in the IS300)

I was wondering about a plastic repair. I'm sure it would be possible to repair the scratches which are superficial but there are some slightly deeper grooves on some edges. I suspect a mobile phone holder or something has been attached at some stage and has left tell tale signs. I'll try to find someone that does dashboard repairs and see if it can be made better.

Back when I had the RX I used these people for some leather and plastic repairs. Very good but a bit far from you unless you're ever over this way.
