Dash tip? not for the purist.

My second hand Dash top was cheap but had been used in a wooden facia application in its previouse life.
When the dash was offered up to bolt on, there was a 5mm area all along the top which had been crushed by the wood
dash leaving a crushed mess visible, Initially I folded a length of vinyl around a piece of rubber and bolted the dash in, it
wasnt good as it hardly covered the area I was trying to conceal. A visit to a local shop found me a length of polished alloy 2.5mm thick by 20mm wide.
I bent this over the dash top lip, recovered the roll of vynil, over a 2 core electric cable a little thicker than the first one.
The results are better the alloy supports the vinyl "tube", pretty much covering the area concerned. I might make an even thicker tube but it could then look too much.
Unless you have any other ideas?

The heater box could do with a lick of paint. It looks a bit scruffy next to all the shiny clean stuff
Gaffa tape is like "the force" - it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together.
