Does anyone have an idea how to soften a rather brittle dash pad? I have a 60 Chevy with a padded dash - overall it's in pretty good shape. It has a couple of hairline cracks. My bigger concern is if there's a way to soften the pad itself. Can these be repainted or dyed to match the interior colors? The Chevy has a red interior and the pad is darker than it was when it was new. Any ideas? Thanks!
