Whilst looking for something else, I spotted this ad for the dash repair.
DASHBOARD REPAIR KIT- GENUINE LR PART (BLACK - Suitable for any colour
If your Discovery dash has started to peel well we have the answer with this
dashboard repair kit including screws and fitting instructions. Comprises of
two plastic sections that join to form a continuous strip across the
dashboard holding down the front edge of the peeling dash. Our black kit is
better suited for dashboards that are peeling badly as it's a more thicker
and rigid than the beige and grey versions.

Just be gratefull it isn't the front one that leaks - you get a load of cold
water down the back of your neck. For what use they are on ours, Bruce
sealed them up with silicone sealer.
