    So my dad borrowed my truck and put a piece of wood covered in primer through the back window and rested it on the vinyl dashboard. It was right to the left of the hump over the gauge cluster. Now there is a massive white spot where the board took the color off the dash. Turns out our dashes are white vinyl sprayed with the color.

    Where can I find an aftermarket dash? can I fix this?

    HELP!

    yeah, check into repair before you buy all new. Unless there's deep gouges or something repair might be a viable option...

    My thought is Dupli-color vinyl & fabric spray paint in flat black. I used this stuff on the AC vent part around the radio. You would have to pull the entire dash piece out and clean it before painting.
    An custom interior shop for cars might be able to refinish it.

    Some stuff
    You said it was covered in primer, could it be that the primer rubbed off on the dash?

    A black that matches and a foam brush. Light coats feathering out the edges. The texture of the dash should hide any blemishes.

    I sratched off some of the white spot and it was more white. The dash appears to be a white vinyl covered in the charcol color.

    doubt it would. That's like hitting your truck with a shopping cart, and telling the stealership you want the warranty to cover a new paintjob.

    I work at a dealership and we have a guy that comes out to fix dashboards and all interior trim pieces on our used cars. Im in SoCal but I am sure you can find someone local to fix it. He charges us $45 a panel.......Research automotive restoration or something like that.
