I've recently picked up some of the interior plastic panels I was after. Unfortunately, one the pieces is a little faded, worn and has a moderate sized crack which I would like to have repaired. Does anyone know of a place that can do interior plastic repair/refurbishment in the Sydney area?

 

Thanks

If you want to try DIY there are plastic glues available and spray pack paint to suit. Or perhaps someone who does plastic welding could help, eg damaged plastic bumpers are routinely welded.

I was hoping to find someone who can do a nice job at plastic welding from the back of the panel. I had taken other stuff to an old guy in Western Sydney who was very good. He ran a little workshop, doing plastic and fiberglass repairs in his garage. I called his number on Friday and sadly, was informed by his wife that he passed away last year.

If I can't find someone good, I'll have a crack at some DIY.

It's not that tricky, soldering iron and cable ties works a treat

I had all my plastic bits covered in vinyl as they were faded and cracked. Check out my build thread.

Another method is to use plastidip. It is easy to apply and no special prep is needed.

Thanks for the tips guys. Both the vinyl and plastidip seem like decent options.
