Dash Mat you love
Has anyone found a dash mat they love? How about the Coverking molded dash mat?

ryan c 01-02-2013 09:00 PM

it wasn't as molded as i was hoping for so i returned it. i went with a dashtek design somethinerother from the dealership. it takes a lot of Velcro to hold it down but i haven't had to wipe my dash down for over a year :D

Thanks Ryan, do you know if the velcro will damage the dash? I hate the idea of sticking it on the dash and worry about what would happen if it was removed.

It says it wont but I suppose it could depending on how long its there. I plan on leaving mine on for a long time so well see one day lol. IMO I think itll be fine. It wouldn't cause as much damage as the sun could do I wouldn't think.

When I bought my truck used form the dealer it had a cheap carpet one on the dash. I asked them to remove it so it was off when i picked up the truck(at night). so i didn't notice until later that there are marks on the dash where the velcro was.. :( I thought it was glue that would come off with some cleaner but it didn't. I should have said something at the time, but thought I could clean it up myself. The marks are small, but i havent figured out a way to clean them up or paint them yet.

oh shit that's good to know. hard to say what kind Velcro was used. goo gone or rubbing alcohol didn't work? damn good luck with that. keep us posted if you come up with something.

Ya, I suspect that the guys who removed it were in a rush and possibly damaged the dash when removing the velcro. I should have just done it myself. Oh well. :)

i have one off ebay... the trick is you have to tuck the dash mat between the windshield and the dash up front, that way it doesnt slide around. i used little velcro'd, maybe 6 small pieces. it takes a week or so for it to really lay flat on the dash. i paid 40 bucks for mine off ebay and i like it. i velcro'd patches so it wasnt a huge furry spot on the airbag

Where I work we make custom seat covers and dashcovers... the best way to remove the velcro is taking it off slowly, then using alcohol to get all the sticky residue off. And the guy above is right, if you're worried about TINY marks the velcro makes over the years, think about the pounding the entire dash will take if you don't cover it.

Thanks for the advice on dash pads

I've got the DashMat brand. Just tuck it between the dash and windshield... the dash is painted and will get damaged from velcro, glue, or double back tape.

I have Cover King for my 1st Gen and 2nd Gen. For $30 at Costco, it was a deal. Yes, the velcro can ruin your dash if you remove it as dash is painted.

I was thinking about this one:

Well if you don't use Velcro, be careful rolling down your windows. Mine started flopping and it was tucked in in the front. I didn't want to use anything but it was necessary.
