I took my dashboard completely off. Does anybody know of a quality dashboard cover? I had one of those cheesy plastic ones before it was crap. Iím restoring my bug and would like to know if anybody could point my in the right direction for a quality dashboard cover.

Thanks, Mark

You have 3 choices that I know of.
1-Dashmat: a carpet that you lay over the dash
2-The plastic cover that you mention
3-Have it reskinned. Big $$$$ there.

Some of the plastic covers are good, some are bad. You have to find the best one of the plastic offerings. Mine was installed by the PO about ten yeas ago, and it still looks fine.

Hopefully, someone will chime in and let you know where to get a nice-fitting, quality cover.
