So sitting in my car looking around at my abused interior. Could say things like dash cracks, ceiling rips and things of that nature. Could be filled and covered in a wrap or sticker bomb be used to hide the defects? I haven't found really anything on the subject. Any thoughts welcome or advice. I would fill dash splits with foam and reshape. Ceiling would be easy to fix with tape or vinyl repair kit. Then maybe use a textured or busy wrap/bomb to cover up the patched areas. Again any thoughts would be welcome.

what would the cost be on a vinyl wrap?
I pulled my dash, filled the cracks with 3M
2 part urethene bumper repair, then used a
3M Grey urethane 2 part paint to refinisn the dash.
Cost for materials about $40.
2605 shows the completed dash.

Wow za! That looks factory! Nice work. Any pics of before the fix? Anyway wraps are cheap these days. eBay has carbon fiber sheets form 20$ us. Some cheaper. For a large roll. I was thinking of doing something more custom. Which could cost me more but would be unique. Think I'm going to roll with my idea and see if it works out. Worst case I just remove the vynl if I hate it.
