Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm selling my is250 but want to do a few jobs first to ensure it's presented in the best possible light.  One of my issues is a 4 inch crack in the vinyl above the radio.  Has anyone had a similar problem and successfully filled/repaired it?  There are various vinyl repair kits on the market but as usual with very mixed reviews.

Regards to all.

I repaired marks / holes around the centre vents in mine before I sold it. I used one of those kits off of amazon. Takes a while to do but it takes your eye off it.

Thanks for the quick replies.  I like the mat idea as it's no work and a good result, I'll check the sizes tomorrow.  If it doesn't cover the crack on the contours I'll go down the kraftex route.👍

It kind of highlights the potential issue rather than masks it. I guess it is ok to use for yourself if you want to protect the dash, but I would imagine any buyer would be immanently put-off after seeing it, even if there is nothing wrong with the dash.

Many thanks to leelacey17 for the Kraftex tip.  The 2 cracks can be seen in the first pic below and the repair in the second pic.  The IPA dried out the vinyl but a bit of post repair care tomorrow should make it look good again.
