dash pad restoration questions

with my buick apart, i decided to take the dash pad out, and see if i could find a new/repo one. of corse they are hard to find, and i found some that are $300 + dollers, way out of my pricerange. then i got an eastwood catolouge and noticed a dash pad restoration kit. my pad is fairly decent, except for a major crack on the passenger side. i was wondering if anyone had any experience trying this, and if they would reccomend it? also, what kind of work is involved/supplys needed. thanks!

I just tried restoring the pad in my Maverick. I was able to fill the crack, but unfortunately, it reappeared after painting. I cheaped out and bought a glue-on cap, but if I were to do it again... Look at the vids on VinylPro's website and you'll see what I missed.
