I haven't used these guys before but I've thought about calling them:

Let us know if you end up reaching out to them. I know a lot of us would be interested if they do a good job.

I've seen some attempts at this, basically they take some filler of some sort, like RTV sealant (black), squish it into the gap, place something over it that will not stick (?? plastic wrap,,,, thin ) and then apply a textured vinyl or something as close as the 'grain" of the dash over that to try and mimic the look and let it dry. Peel off the plastic wrap, and voila! a patch of sorts. The more sophisticated restorers have a better product than RTV sealer, some sort of heat gun product. Regardless, I don't hold out too much hope that it will be invisible, just an aesthetic  improvement over current state.
