if the dash has already cracked, it is going to continue cracking. just filling them in and painting is only going to crack again in the near future. you can pull the dash, have the bad areas trimmed, repad it, and have it wrapped in new vinyl, or get a dash mat/cap.
i did a mid 90s impala about a year ago. the factory dash was all cracked and chipped. recovered in black vinyl and you couldn't tell. we do the dash caps often as well. did one on a 93 nissan pickup the other day. the vinyl had cracked and shrunk up so much, i ended up cutting most of the old material away to get the cap to sit right.
