My '79 450SL is in good shape except for the dash. The sun has done damage that is obvious. Has anyone had there dash refurbished, restained, or whatever to make it look almost new? Do I have to take the dash out and how tough is it? Give me your experience, good or bad please. I have to do something. Cecil.............:(

I do not know your model - but removing the dash is a big job on most cars. Is it cracked of just faded? I can't see any cracks.

For something cosmetic and very obvious like this I would go to a professional because you can do more harm and it might be impossible to correct your mistakes.

I have had cracks in my dash filled with the goop and it looked better (not perfect) for 6 months until it cracked again. Then I got a dash cover (a hard plastic cap that looked just like the dash underneath) and that looks great - I thought that someday I would replace the dash but now I might not even bother.

Good Luck
