there are no 'good' fixes...:-/

A dash cap or a new dash are about it. People have filled those cracks w/ damn near everything but it never looks right.

Oscar,

You have a couple options here. You can order a custom-fit dash cover made of carpet-like material that will simply cover the dash and whatever cracks are on it. These run about $50. Here is an example:

The better way is a molded dash cap. These are pricier. Here is one:

Hope this helps.
