Most plastic welding places will do it but I have had trouble with them trying to get the right plastic to match the dash stuff I repaired my old calais one with some epoxy resin type stuff then drilled a hole for the screw most of the screw holes are covered so you can't see them

What part of the dash are we talking about ? - The speedo cover is the trouble one always breaks the two front screws

Gidday Guys...thanks for your replies....I have an 87 calais. Pretty much all pieces of the dash have at least one hole broken NZVL....but I spose of most concern is the one that covers the speedo etc. Ive had to tack it down to the piece below (next to the right speaker grill) to keep it from moving. How many parts have you got lying around?? I live in Aucks so could be interested in perhaps buying what ya have....cheers, Mike

Try pick a part. Three branches in Auckland, there is usually VLs in the Mangere and Takanini yards. Parts are cheap too. Costs a dollar to get in - but that covers you for all the yards for one day.
