Default Ultra leather repair

We two small cracks on the dash. A search turned up several products that no one seemed happy with. Has anyone found a product that worked well? We have a light gray dash and I want to catch this before it gets bigger. Thanks.

Most car lots use folk to make these repairs and they are inexpensive. I found a guy here on Craigslist who also does leather repair I haven't called him yet but I too want to get a couple areas looked at.

An automotive trim shop should be able to fix your problem. Be on the look out for the fast operators check their work before you hire them.

Mark, if you are still in the Clearwater area, Parliament had a vendor whose name I have. In 2009 he fixed a few holes on my dash so well you have to look just right in order to guess where they were. I tried a kit in another area with poor results. If still in business it is Gulf Coast Vinyl Care, Inc., Scott Jette, 727-458-9295.

I used Fibrenew to repair my dash. Did a nice job repairing three areas for $125.
They are a nationwide franchise operation. 9 locations in Florida alone.

If the dash is truly ultraleather instead of plain vinyl it may be a lot more difficult to repair. (according to the guy who did my dash)

Mark:

There is a vendor here in Lexington that repaired the passenger leather seat in our 90 sp. I could not tell the difference. If you need me to find him again I will be delighted to do so.

Thank you all so much. It is a small cut, but I don't want it to get any bigger. Truly, I don't know if it is vinyl or not. I just assumed! You know what happens then.
