Default How to fix crack in dash and chip?

There is this long crack that goes from the window to where the steering wheel is on my dash right above the guages. I know it would be pricey to replace the whole thing but is there a way I can fill it in or maybe like put some super glue down the whole thing and then hold it together for a minute or two? There is also this missing piece in the dash right where the headlight **** that you pull is and there is some interior foam exposed. Can I fill this in with something as well or am I screwed and my car will never be nice?

I have an Upper trim panel from a Twilight Sentinel equipped car, Try some silicone and SEM paint for the dash, Assuming it'* tan.

It turns on your headlights at night I think... On cars with it there'* some extra writing around the headlight switch.

Oh no its not automatic or anything. But I guess I could just fill it in with some silicon or maybe something that I can sand into shape. If I go crazy with this car in the future with mods and such I might just have or attempt to make a custom dash.

I've used 3m trim adhesive in the cracks before. I built it up and lightly sanded down the
crack and then used the interior paint. It doesnt look perfect but it last a long time and
the paint sticks to it well.
