    Dashboard mat/cover pictures?

    Does anyone here have any pictures of a dashboard cover on their car? The glare is annoying so I figured Id try a mat, but can barely find any pictures of how they look in the car.

    I like this one because its compact, doesnt hang over, and wont get in the way.

    This suede would look cool, but If it goes all the way down the dash itll look loose, and therefore stupid. Id have to trim it, but it could get messy.

    I like the dashboard cover you picked............... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1997-...#ht_2844wt_958

    but I can't understand why you to cover a dash if its not cracked?

    Maybe you should use a different cleaner or protectant on the dash so it won't glare.

    I dont have an protectant on the dash, but the glare is annoying enough to do something about it.

    I have the 1st one. I used it when my dash cracked. I eventually got a new dash. If you buy make sure that you get a tailor and stich the velcro to the cover. the velcro comes off with the heat and starts to get messy. You will also noticed a burnt smell for a while. This is produced by the heat hitting the cover. I guess is the material is made from. It adds a nice look but i agree if your dash is not crack why use it. I have the ventshields that i put everytime the car sits in the sun. I use those to protect the dash from the heat. You are right the glare can get annoying sometimes so i can understand why you want to get it.

    Had the first on on my old Z28, definitely getting it again. Glare went away 100%.
    That was after buying a new dash and having it break after less than a year.
    For the SS i'm buying the cover.

    The first one is what I have and have recommended to all F-Body owners. It works great.
