    So i know what I need to do to repair but wanted to see if someone could tell me if I'm going the best way at it also what materials are going to work best like brands also any pointers ??? I plan to cut the old cracked wood out under the dash and replace with new wood and glass it back in...Or could I just patch the wood and glass the crack ? Hopefully someone will speak up so I don't end up doing same job twice I read a lot forums none really like this repair but learned a lot ....
    One question is the a certain type wood I need to use or any better then others ?
    Second is replacing new wood what best way to make sure I get it attached back to deck dash before I glass back in ?
    Thanks guys

    I'm no expert, but I am somone...

    Your seeing stress cracks. Search on here and you will find lots of info on the repair of them. It's from the hull flexling.

    Your dash, you can cut round pieces of plywod and fill in the old holes and glass them into place. Lots of info on here about that too. The search button is your friend.

    for example...Holes In Dash

    hope this helps.
