Padded dash repair

We have a 2005 DS, took delivery in April.
While cleaning the padded dash I noticed an area that was slightly discoloured. It looked like something had been sprayed on it.
I got my interior cleaner and as I worked at it with a soft brush it started to lift.
At first I was pleased figuring that the dash board was going to look great when I got the area cleaned. As I got further into it I realized that it was some sort of paint.
Turns out that at some point the padded area of the dashboard got a 1 1/2" cut into it. The paint was the fix, the fix was pretty good as I never noticed the damage till I looked real close this afternoon.
Now I have exposed the damaged area (perhaps in hind sight I should of left it alone, but I am my worst enemy some days), anyone know if there is a repair for the padded dash?

Padded dash repair

Check with a furniture repair, or perhaps a specialty auto repair/restorer. (If your dash is leather, find a leather shop.). These will often have someone with special skills to make repairs of this kind. The right person can make the cut disappear-- without any paint coating.
