Installing a dashboard trim kit is a great way to enhance the appearance of your interior and add value to your car or truck. But you won't achieve satisfactory results unless the surface of the dash is properly prepared. It should be common knowledge by now, but worth repeating nonetheless, that the dash must be thoroughly cleaned to remove all traces of Armor All® or other petroleum products. Most dash kit manufacturers recommend that the dash be cleaned at least 3 times with a degreaser designed for the job.
The importance of the next step should not be underestimated. After cleaning, the surface must be primed with a surface promoter to ensure the 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape adheres to the dash. Many dashboards today are constructed of plastics with low surface energy, which makes them very slippery. 3M™ Adhesion Promoter 4298 is specially formulated for such material. It chemically modifies the surface of the plastic and bonds with it, ensuring that the 3M™ tape will attach properly. The Professional Installation Adhesion Promoter Pen is the perfect delivery system for the adhesion promoter. It allows you to apply the promoter exactly where you want it, and only as much as is needed. When priming, 3M™ recommends that you only apply one even coat, since applying multiple coats could compromise the bond and thereby defeat the purpose.
Remin® has been designing dash kits since the 1990s and grown organically to be one of the major players in the automotive trim market. The company has invested heavily in cutting edge technology, with CNC lasers for perfect fitment and the latest equipment for color and pattern matching, to achieve exact matches to factory colors and grain patterns. Remin has over the years built an extensive digital library of dashboard patterns for just about every car marketed in the US since the 80s. Remin dash kits are the only kits on the market that are manufactured in the USA. Having the production in house (Roselle Park, NJ) makes it possible to for Remin's design team to bring kits for new vehicle models to market faster than the competition.
