Dash Designs Custom Dash Cover Installation Instructions.
1.) POSITION DASHCOVER ON DASHBOARD.
Place your Dash Designs ® cover on the dash and PRESHAPE. Bend, fold and crease the material to help conform it to the shape of your dashboard. Use your defroster vents as a guide to line up your dashcover. The warmer the weather, the more your dashcover will conform to the contours of your dash. *Ponga el cubridor de tablero sobre el tableroy preforme.
Check to see if your vehicle is equipped with automatic headlights, climate control, an alarm sensor or other options which may require a hole to be cut out of your dashcover. This hole may or may not be already cut out. If it is not cut out, check for markings or a perforated hole on the underside of your dash cover. Cut out the opening using a sharp scissors. *Inspeccione su tablero por instrumentos deluces/clima o centinelas de crepusculo.

1. IS THIS THE RIGHT DASHCOVER FOR MY VEHICLE?
Be sure that the make, model, and yrs. printed on these instructions match your vehicle.
(Note that many vehicles interchange with others and could have the same dashboard and thus would not affect the fit of your cover: Chevy/GMC; Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth; Lincoln/Ford/Mercury, etc.)
2. VELCRO TABS WON’T STICK TO MY DASH.
The Velcro provided will not initially adhere to a dashboard that is too hot, dirty, dusty, or has a vinyl protectant or polish applied. Make sure you are working with a cool, clean surface and clean accordingly. See # 3 at top of this page.
3. MY DASHCOVER IS BLOCKING AN AIR VENT/ CLOCK/ASHTRAY, ETC..
OR HANGS OVER THE FRONT EDGE OF THE DASHBOARD.
Make sure your dashcover is aligned with the defroster vents for proper centering. Your Dash Designs® cover may need to be tucked further back between the windshield and the front of the dashboard. A putty knife may be helpful pushing from underneath the dashcover.
4. THE FRONT EDGE OF MY DASH DESIGNS® DASH COVER IS WAVY BETWEEN THE WINDSHIELD & DEFROSTER VENTS.
Create tension on both sides of ripples by pulling on dash cover while installing Velcro® tabs.
5. MY COVER IS NOT CONFORMING TO THE SHAPE OF MY DASHBOARD.
Give your new Dash Designs® cover a few days to conform to your dashboard. The colder the outside temperature, the longer it may take for your dashcover to conform to the contours of your dashboard. Be sure to pre-shape your cover (see #1 on front) to achieve a good fit.
