Unfortunately - Pete is wrong.
The dash isn't vinyl. It's recycled rubber (yes it is!).. as you noticed
it's quite a bit different than dashes on most cars.
All it needs is to be kept clean. It will never crack. It will never split.
Since you have goop on it now - I'd suggest washing it with a mixture of
water and SimpleGreen, followed by water to rinse it off. Get the crap
off. The dash is very slightly porous, and you want to get the crap out
of the pores.
Soap=water=clean. Then leave it alone.
If not protected against UV, rubber will dry rot and crack just the same.
That's why the 303 is a good thing to use, IMO. It's good on rubber
surfaces as well.
