Product Details

Original Dash Cover by DashMat®. This DashMat dash cover protects the dash surface from ultraviolet rays that can cause cracks and warping. It can cover blemishes and imperfections of old dashboards. The dash cover also helps reduce hazardous windshield glare, keep interiors cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.


  • Protects your dash from sun damage, helping to stop cracking and warping
  • Cuts hazardous windshield glare
  • Reduces windshield haze caused by plasticizer migration
  • Lowers interior temperatures
  • Made of durable, color fast, non-shrinking needle punch carpet
  • Soft Foss Fibre® carpet won't fray or unravel
  • Produced from 100% post-consumer recycled drink bottles
  • All vent and sensor openings pre-cut (or marked depending on options)
  • Airbag compatible
  • Hook-and-loop fasteners included for easy, secure installation
  • Custom made to fit your vehicle
  • Customize your DashMat with computer-stitched logos or monogramming
  • Designed in the USA

It takes only a minute to install a custom-fit DashMat dash cover. Even in temperate climates, the summer sun shining through the windshield punishes the vinyl coating of your dashboard with high-energy UV rays and extremes of heat. It doesn't take long for the UV to degrade the plastic. The heat literally boils the liquid plasticizers out of the vinyl, making it even more brittle and likely to crack and split. Those plasticizers then condense on the inside of your window glass, making that gummy film that's almost impossible to remove.

Each Original DashMat is custom made. DashMat's designers buy your specific car's dashboard, make a custom pattern, and then make samples until they achieve a perfect fit. The Original DashMat is produced from an eco-friendly polyester fabric that's made from melting down recycled PET soft drink bottles. If your car has vents on the top of the dash, cutouts are already in place to accommodate them. Depending on the exact fitment, any cutouts for sensors (like an A/C sensor) are either already in place or marked on the back for easy cutout. There are also precut slits in the fabric to accommodate your airbags (if any). The deploying airbag will simply peel open the DashMat, not hurtle it into your passenger's face. In-dash speakers are NOT cut out of dash covers because the fabrics do not distort sounds. DashMat-like fabrics are often used as speaker covers by stereo component manufacturers.

Add a personal touch to your DashMat with an embroidered logo or custom-embroidered message. Stitched on the same computer-controlled embroidery machine used for garments and hats, these embellishments are a luxurious touch in complementary colors.

Your DashMat installs in your car with a couple of strips of hook-and-loop fasteners. That makes it easy to remove for cleaning, and doesn't require any permanent modifications to your car. Just clean the dash with soap and water, and stick the tape down. If you've been using a slippery protectant, it might help to clean that off from under the tape with rubbing alcohol. Just peel the tape away from the dash and use rubbing alcohol to remove any leftover adhesive. Using an Original DashMat not only keeps your dash looking sharp, it protects the resale value of your vehicle as well.

In 1979, a US Air Force retiree living in Arizona noticed the number of vehicles driving around with towels and rags on the dash area in an effort to reduce the harsh heat and glare of the desert sun. He experimented with a number of different materials, looking for both the ideal texture (to reduce glare) and insulation (to reduce heat build-up) and, after adding latex backing for shape retention, he introduced the perfect carpet for his new product – DashMat®. Now a part of car accessory family Covercraft, DashMat continues to build the best-fitting dash covers in the industry. With traditional fabrics like suede and velour cornerstoning their product line, they now offer the high-tech-appearance Limited Edition mat that complements the carbon fiber and aluminum of many new car interiors, and the Foss Fibre® Original DashMat and UltiMat made from recycled pop bottles.

Better than Expected
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this DashMat. For such a good price I expected a cheaply made, ill fitting piece of shag carpet. The item arrived in perfect condition. It fits my car wonderfully. The exterior edging looks and feels high quality.

Original Dash Blue Cover
It's a great product and I am sure I'll enjoy it for many years to come. However, more time should have been devoted to making sure it adheres to the contours on the dash from the beginning. I am fairly satisfied that over time it will settle onto the dash and fit just fine. But I can't help think that with some more effort the dash fit and finish could have been done a bit better. Installation was also a bit longer than it should have been, the hole for the infrared bulb on the dash is either a bit misaligned or too small. Some fine tuning would be good on that.
