DASH COVER INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
TOOLS REQUIRED: Ammonia type window cleaner, clean rag, fine grit sandpaper,
blue masking tape and a single edge razor blade.
CLEANING AND PREPARING YOUR OLD DASHBOARD
- Prefit your new Dash Cover to make sure you have the correct model
- If your dashboard is cracked or has high spots, use a razor blade
or sandpaper to trim the raised areas.
- Lightly sand the old dashboard and the underside of the new Dash
- Thoroughly clean the old dashboard and the underside of the new
Dash Cover , with ammonia type window cleaner. This should remove
any oils or preservatives that have built up over the years.
- Recheck the fit of your new Dash Cover by placing it over the clean
dashboard. Old dashboards sometimes expand over the years, so you
may have to do some trimming to achieve the best fit.
- In some cases you might have to remove speaker grids and defroster
INSTALLING THE DASH COVER
- After your Dash Cover fits properly, prepare the silicone adhesive.
Place the tube of silicone adhesive in a cup of hot water. This will
soften it and make it flow easier.
- Apply the adhesive to the underside of the new Dash Cover around
the perimeters of air vents, radio speaker openings, climate sensors
and outer edge.
- The adhesive "bead" should be about the size of a pencil.
- DO NOT put adhesive closer than 1/2 "from the edge.
- DO NOT put adhesive in the center of the Dash Cover , as it will
not allow the Dash Cover to expand and contract in the hot and cold
- Remember less adhesive is better.
- Place the Dash Cover over the original dash. You may need to wedge
heavy objects between the dash and windshield, or use masking tape,
cardboard wedges, or bunji cords to secure your Dash Cover .
- It will take 2 to 4 hours for your adhesive to setup.
