How to repair your car dashboard

Bumps and bangs inevitably happen inside your car and so in this guide, we will show you how to repair cracks and holes that may appear on your dashboard and on the inside of the car door.

Sugru is great for this task because:

- it is strong and durable

- can be colour mixed to match the inside of your car

- it bonds really well to car interiors

Kit

  • Your damaged car part 

  • 1 or 2 single-use packs of Sugru (depending on the size of the crack)

  • Soapy water

  • Toilet/Tissue paper

Colour Mix

The inside of your car may be black or white, in which case you probably won’t choose to colour mix. But in this instance we used a single-use pack of white Sugru with a little black in order to make a grey to match our interior! (Hint: For colour mixing, it is always easier to start lighter and add more black, rather than the other way around).

Make A Sausage Roll

Get your car crack and simply roll your Sugru into a thin sausage over the gaps and press firmly down. 

Iron Down

Simply use your finger to firmly press the sausaged Sugru to give it a flat, ironed-out effect.

Wait A While...

Give the Sugru a wash with some warm soapy water to create a smooth surface finish without any cracks, fingerprints or lumps and bumps. Once you've done this, It's time to take some time out. 12-24 hours out, in fact - because that's how long it'll take the Sugru to set. But once the wait is over, the interior of your car is fixed and ready for more great years of service!
