This thread may help you. I did some plastic goofing around last winter and put my dash back together.

The plastic is whatever you can find. If there is an electronics recycling center, might see if they have a piece of plastic from an old tv back, etc. most of that stuff is ABS and pretty easy to work with.

The putty process went well , good thing it set up slow.  it took about an hour for it to set up then dried over nite , now its rock hard. After it set up I sanded down and the touched up with paint .  Here are some pics.

Gabriel

I actual found 2 narrow strips of material then used the putty as filler and glue to hold together.
