dash is cracking

When I bought the car in 2010 the dash was perfect. I live in Phoenix so I bought a dashmat to try and protect it a bit. I probably should have wiped it down or sprayed it with something over the years.

I just took a look today and it's in awful condition. I don't really mind that it's cracked as long as I can't see it. Unfortunately it looks like the cracks are about to extend out to where they will be visible to me.

How do I stop them from expanding? Some sort of glue or epoxy?

You can also fill the cracks and then WRAP the dash in vinyl. I'm really happy with mine, although the guy cracked the dash reinstalling it.

Can still barely see it though, UNDER the vinyl. And the surface looks perfect. Use a high quality UV resistant satin textured vinyl, and have a pro wrap it for you unless you're very handy.

If you can reinstall it without cracking it, you're good to go.
