Quoted from Casper
Rustins plastic coating

I concur. ...I posted a thread a few years ago on here when I did my Vitesse 6 dash. Good stuff. .but job best done with the entire dashboard removed from car.


Current: Triumph Vitesse 6 convertible with O/D 1964

21 Years ago...and my first car! : Triumph Herald 1200 Saloon/ Tristan conversion 1966

It would be nice if other who have used it added their views on the other post.

I thought YOU did, on the other post... and claimed that it crazed after fourteen years?

If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.

Yes, but others said they would try it.  I'm all for openness and honesty.

I've not used it on dashboards, so I can't speak to how well it resists heat cycling and UV. My brother used it for finishing two bass guitars, both of which are still good as new some 35 years on.
