Chevrolet K10 Dash Cover
How to Prolong the Lifespan of Your Chevrolet K10 Dash Cover
Although it may seem undisturbed most of the time, your Chevrolet K10 dash cover is also subject to wear and tear like the rest of the truck parts. Without proper maintenance, your Chevy's dash cover may expose you to extreme heat from the sun as well as irritating dust. Learn how to care for your dash cover through these quick tips:
- Get a dash cover that's custom-fit to your truck.
Given the wide range of aftermarket dash covers available, you'll need to choose one that is designed to precisely fit onto your truck's exact year, make, and model. Dash covers come in a variety of hues to match the interior of your vehicle.
Some covers allow you to customize the design so that they do not obstruct dashboard functions, sensors, glove boxes, etc. Due to increased concern about safety these days, you can be rest assured that new dash covers make way for air bags to function properly.
- Place an adhesive dash cover for damaged dashboards.
If you want to retain your original dashboard, then putting an adhesive dash cover would be best. It covers any noticeable damage to your dashboard without requiring you to change the whole board. Think of it as placing a new "skin" pasted over the old one. Plus, there are a number of dashboard covers that extend from door to door. This way, you can revamp the entire dashboard without exerting much effort.
- Wash the dash cover to remove dirt and dust.
When you notice that your dashboard is starting to accumulate dirt and dust, perform spot cleaning using warm water. You may also opt to use a car vacuum if there's only dust and crumbs. Avoid using harmful chemicals on the dash cover, as these may adversely affect some dash cover materials.
- Use a windshield sun shade to protect your dash.
Although your dash is bound to fade over time, there are ways to slow it down. To defend your dashboard cover from premature fading, use a windshield sun shade that will block the sunlight from getting on your dashboard while your truck is parked.
