Default Dash covers????

I was wondering if anyone had either a molded dash cover or a carpet one and how they have felt about them. Possibly looking at putting in a camo one cause 1. it will show off a little of my inner redneck and 2. will protect my dash from fading as im too lazy to put up a window screen lol. Just wondering if any of you guys are liking yours and what you think of the idea.

There is a member that makes a nice, simple, clean cover.
I'm sure someone will post the info.

Wow! It's like back to the future!

I will give it a shot. I think a grey cover could be painted with the fabric paint. Ill try on a piece of scrap and see how it comes out. You want like the traditional camo?

I would bet, if you took a dash cover that you liked to a car upholstery place, and brought them some camo material, they would fashion one for you. Might cost a little more than you were looking for, but it would be a one-off.

x2. i recovered one for a friend (member). he had one, and we recovered it to match the seat inserts and door panels. there are tons of camo materials out there. i think i can get almost anything from traditional to digital.





these were taken just minutes after finishing. he said that after a few hours in the sun, all the little fold marks came out and it laid flat.

Interesting. I've been considering one but can't decide if I like the look or not. Pooleo, could you relink your pictures? The ones in the thread you linked here are either moved or deleted. Thanks!
