Forums : Truck Care : Are dashboard protectant's needed? (288 Views)
February 2, 2005You can argue that you don't need it. The composition of the dash boards have changed and gotten better. The only cracked dashes I've seen on are on old vehicles (10+ years) and I've seen some dry rot on them before.
The main thing you'll want to protect against is the sun fading the material. Use a sunvisor in the windshield, get window tint on the sides, and 303 Aerospace has a lot of UV inhibitors in it. It was created as a boating product meant to be used on parts that sit in the sun all day. Believe it blocks 98% of all UV rays. It's also water-based and dries fully on the panel. No greasy Armor-all feel anymore.

It's really good stuff, you can apply as much or as little as you need for a low luster or high gloss look. The smell is unbeatable, it's better than an air freshener. Once it cures it won't come off on your skin.
I also tend to think just having a sunscreen protector would help more than anything. Ever seen an old car that wasn't really restored, just kept in a garage all it's life? It's all about those darn UV rays...
February 18, 2005Peaple that do not use protection on that dash normally have their a feelings hurt in about two years down the line when that dash starts pealing up. RM I treat all my interior every car wash. Just do not over kill. Just like cleaning house once a week.
