Paul: Thanks for the pictures and info. I would love to have a smple of the carpet and will be glad to pay shipping. I think I might go by Big Lots in the next day or two and just take a "lookee-see" to be that much ahead when I get the sample. The info was great and ya'll did a beautiful job. Hope ours is even half as nice.
Lynda

Paul,

Because of your outstanding job, we finished our dash cover, see attahced. It was really a fairly easy job. we did use some non permanent adhesive to hold our sodwn because our dogs jump up and down on the dash all the time. didn't want to take a chance on them slipping. Thanks again for giving us the motivation to do this.

What adhesive did you use? I looked at HD for the kind that they use to hold carpet tiles to the raised floors in office buildings and they didn't carry it.

WOW, looks great.
A fine job well done.
Yours looks even better than mine....perfect fit around all of the contours.
Thanks for the update,
Paul

All,

We used Elmer's Craftt Adhesive. We chose it because it can be either a temporary or permanent attachment. For temporary you spray it on the surfaces, wait about 4 minutes, then stick together. If you want it permanent you spray it on, then immediately stick together. So far it seems to be working just fine. Sophie and Jake have tried and they approve :-). Of coourse time will tell how well it works.

Paul, thanks for the compliment, but I have to confess, Lynda figured out how to "stuff" the fabric under the dash instrumant cluster and the plastic front of the dash. She used a putty knife to push it under those areas.

I decided ti "Bite the Bullet" and remove the entire dash panel, pad and cover with marine grade vinyl. More work to R & R the dash than to pad and recover

Paul and Lynda both jobs look very professional, looks like it could have come from the factory that way

Now you got me thinking about a project. We caught our 70lbs Shepard on the dash the other day barking at a dog running loose by the RV, can you imaging what our dash looks like now
