You don't have to endure the unpleasant sight of your dashboard fading, cracking, and wearing out. It's time to give it a break. A cheap, easy-to-install and customizable dash cap can put an end to all your dashboard insecurities. Here's how you can find the perfect dash cap for your old dashboard.
Check the dash cap features
Since dash caps are specific to the make, model, and year of cars, it is best to know these details first before looking for the right dash cap. Next, check if the cap that you are buying is equipped with UV rays protection to ensure that it will not fade or wear easily, as well as glare resistance for steady, worry-free driving.
Double-check the accessories
Brand-new dash cap kits usually include an installation manual and a free silicone adhesive. Check the kit for the adhesive, as this is the most important tool to use when installing your dash cap. The kit should also include a warranty seal, in case your dash cap does not fit exactly in your dashboard. You may also ask for your preferred color of the dash cap.
Buy a dash cap
Dash caps are made from thin ABS plastic that helps prevent warping, cracking, or peeling. Every dash cap is molded using original factory dashboards in mind, so there will always be a perfect-fit dash cap for your old dashboard. Dash caps, however, are sold in kits, so you can revamp your dashboard without having to buy additional accessories and tools during installation. A brand-new dash cap kit may cost you around $100 or so, depending on your car's make, model, and year. You can also choose which side of your dashboard you want to replace-the driver's or the passenger's side. But we recommend that you have them both replaced.
