Fixed stripped screw holes on insturment panel

Short of buying a new dash, how can the screw hole be repaired to hold a screw and half way tighten?

Is there a filler or some type of screw anchor fastsner I could use?

Has anyone had this problem and how did you repair the holes ?

shove a tooth pick or paper clip in the hole that has been cut to size, insert screw

just put some steel wool in the hole. This works very well

I have found that the plastic wall anchors work best.

The teflon tape is a good idea. Slop some decent epoxy in the hole and then stick the screw in. When its cured remove the screw and you have new threads. Good for the next time you need to take it apart/put it back together.
It isn't like this is the last time.
