Dash tidy

Postby Michael4 » 09 Jul 2019, 21:53

If that is what they are called?

Who makes or sells a RHD one that is good quality and not just a skimpy bit of black vac forming? Also, who makes one that doesn't require too much drilling etc, our dashboard is virgin, without any signs of having been messed around, no dents, no holes, no scratches.

I'm sure he said good quality, not just a skimpy bit of black vac forming :lol:

If you have a clean and undrilled dash then I suggest you leave it like that, there's no going back. Sikaflex will no doubt bond it, but with unknown effect on the dash if you want to remove it later

If you have a nice looking dash without holes i'd be inclined to leave it be - i have had one and all it ended up was full of dust and cr4p so removed it. A pair of side pockets might be a better option:

I have one with and one without, The van without look so much better, the one with has nasty holes so removing it looks worse than leaving it but I have to keep removing junk

I hated the fact it was vac formed and flexed so I covered the dash with cling film and filled the tidy with expanded foam. easy to clean up and trim.
Gives a quality feel.

I had hoped someone might have made one that was somehow located using the ashtray hole. I get the message that if everything is neat and tidy, don't start drilling holes. The same presumably applies to the door cards which apart from speakers are clean tidy brown plastic. I need to think again...

I've got one of the JK campers ones, tbf to it, it's done a decent job so far. I also have an unmarked dash, mine is attached with a liberal amount of 3M double sided bodywork tape...it has held up well for a couple of years and a fair few miles now:
