Dashboard Repairs

Some skylines that come from japan have various marks,indent or holes from previous owners installing aftermarket gauges or in my case a sat-nav screen.

Hers the indent in my dash, doesn't bother me too much but if it can be restored back to new without a big job i would like it done


The mark on my car is like a indent




Can anyone recommend me someone who is REALLY good at restoring dashes and has experience with skyline/Nissan dash finishes as i would not like it to look out of place.

Thanks,
Az

Thanks Matty

I wouldn't mind getting a new one but it sounds like a big job to fit

How much would a brand new series 3 dash cost anyways?

Dashboard

I'm sure you should be able to get hold do a decent 2nd dash from one of the breakers on the forum and it's not diffult to change either

from memory new about £1500

i didnt have any bubbles but got the dash re-done at Robson JP

many dashes are bubbled

just another common fault on the 32

hopefully you can find a solution

And then You say £1500? -are you on another planet to me?

£150 'isn't that expensive'. £1500 is FU.CKING expensive.

Thats allot of money and its just a indent print. And a repair/ touchup would be allot cheaper.

GTR TAX is getting out of hand. In reality a stock skyline dash should be max £600.
You could get it trimmed in fine leather for 1500. Nissan needs to acknowledge its skyline/gtr owner's and not over inflate prices for what they are worth.
