July 13, 2007My pre -owned 2001 Limited has a small hole/chip in the instraument mounting surround just over the window switch area. I have seen repir kits for dash and seat vinal. Has anyone had ocassion to use any of these products? Or do you have a suggstion to otherwise hide this blemish in an otherwise very nice interior?

July 14, 2007Is it the large piece that surrounds the center ac vents, radio, and window switches?? If so, I'd probably take it out, fill in the hole, sand the whole surround with very fine sandpaper(to get the rubber coating off), and spray paint the matching color of your instrument cluster and air bag cover. Don't forget the clearcoat. I did mine with the assistance of a couple of Oklahoma members at my house and it turned out great!!!! They also make covers that are painted to match that just slip over the existing piece. Hope any of this helps.
July 14, 2007Thanks, that is the piece. You have given me a place to start.I may opt for a cover if I can find.
