Installing a dash cover is as easy as one, two, three. Thanks to computer-aided pattern cutting, dashboard covers are precision-cut to fit your dash perfectly. That not only includes the perimeter shape, but any three-dimensional features as well. And, since these dash covers are custom-built for each year, make and model, they even include dash-mounted cut-outs for your speakers and vents. It’s important to keep in mind that the dash cover design you see in a product image may not be the same as the cover you receive – yours will have cut-outs for your vehicle’s specific dashboard.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when installing your new dash cover:
Installing a Non-Molded Dash Cover
Remove your dash cover from its box and roll it flat across your dashboard. Thanks to the custom-fit design, it should lay right in place with little else for you to do! The dash cover’s custom-designed profile even ensures that there are cutouts for your airbag, vents and sensors, based on your particular make and model. There are some dashboard covers, like the late-model Dodge Ram dash cover and the new Camaro dash cover, that require double-sided Velcro tape for installation (usually included), but that’s only because those vehicles’ dashboards are like a landscape of hills and valleys.
Tip: When you receive your new dash cover, take it out of its box and let it sit in your vehicle in the sun so it can relax. This results in a smoother fit and even more effortless installation process.
Installing a Molded Dash Cover
If you purchased a molded dash cover—such as the Coverking Molded Carpet Dash Cover—then your new accessory should fit effortlessly right over your dash. Molded covers come specifically contoured for your dash, so you don’t even need to unroll them. Simply take your new molded cover out of its box and outfit it directly over your dashboard to enjoy enhanced protection right away.
Popular Dash Covers Brands
Like anything else in the automotive aftermarket, sticking with the big brand names is highly recommended. Dash Designs and Coverking are two of the biggest brands in the dash covers industry. The Dash Designs carpet dashboard cover is extremely popular, as is the brand’s super-plush suede dash cover. Coverking also features a great line-up of dash covers, especially for trucks, like their Toyota dash covers. Both brands also make a matching rear deck cover for most vehicles, so you can equip your back-end with bolstered style and protection as well.
