Repairing small tear in vintage mustang dash pad?

I thought I was going to have to buy a new dashpad, but I pulled this one out of storage and it doesn't look half bad! I'm going to dye it black (It is black, but faded) but it 'seems' ok..

BUT, there is a small little V shaped poke or tear on the top of it. The material is still there, but it's torn. What would be a good method for fixing this before dying it? I'm afraid to use epoxy or some such, because it will need to protrude a bit (and then have to be sanded, to elminate the tear mark) and I'm afraid of it not taking the dye.

Any ideas?

Post some pics so we can see exactly what your dealing with, pics are worth 2000 words around here

I don't have an answer for you but I also have a "vintage" mustang with a cracked dash
I 'm curious to see what our options are as I would like to keep mine 100% origional, and I don't like the after market stuff it never looks or fits as well as stock.
