Default Repairing small screw holes in dash plastic

I need to fill 2 small screw holes low down on my dash where the remote control dock for my VDO Dayton Sat Nav used to be.

Is there a product out there that will do the job?

Pretty sure Halfwits sell dash/trim repair kits, Ian. Otherwise most of the Chipsaway type franchises can do it for you.

Edit - seems that Halfords now offer an in-house service (scroll down to foot of page). No idea how good they are though.

Depending on the colour of your dashboard, you could try silicone rubber. You can get small tubes of it in black and I have used this successfully on a damaged steering wheel.

Needs to be light / mid gray.

I wonder what the trade guys use? Some kind of resin?
