The Best Fitting Custom Dashboard
Dash Covers are a popular accessory in the sunbelt states to combat the
damaging effects of the sun, reduce dangerous sun glare and enhance a
vehicle's interior. A proper fitting Custom Dash Cover will soften the
plastic look of a vehicle's interior and provide protection to the
driver and vehicle dashboard.
Custom Rear Deck Covers, a related accessory, covers the
rear deck area of a vehicle behind the rear seats. Generally, Custom
Rear Deck Covers are not available for trucks, SUVs, vans and hatchback
cars. Custom Rear Deck Covers are available in the same materials and
fabrics as Custom Dash Covers.
A new variation on the Custom Dash Cover by Coverking is the Molded Dash
Cover. This is a thermo-formed carpet Dash Cover. It is molded to the
exact shape of the dashboard, resulting in a perfect fitting cover with
no stitching - this is the "ultimate" Custom Dash Cover.
What's Important in a Custom Dash Cover?
A Custom Dash Cover is a very conspicuous accessory - it is clearly
visible to the driver and front passenger. Therefore, fit and appearance
are the most important qualities of a Custom Dash Cover. The fit is a
result of the Custom Dash Cover's pattern design, construction and
materials. Coverking offers several enhancements to it's line of fine
fitting Custom Dash Covers. These include a wide selection of designer
print materials, Lit Neon Edging, and custom embroidered logos or
Modern vehicle dashboards are complex, with subtle curved shapes, trays,
cup holders, sensors, airbag cutouts, and other considerations. It is
common for dash cover manufacturers to take a short-sighted approach to
the pattern design, and make a mediocre fitting pattern. Addressing the
curves, sensors and cutouts results in a significant amount of time
designing the pattern and later cutting and sewing the Custom Dash Cover
in production. Because of this, many Custom Dash Cover manufacturers cut
corners and produce a Custom Dash Cover which covers sensors, cup
holders, and doesn't address some of the contours of the dashboard. At
best, this produces a poor fit. At worst, it is a dangerous hazard which
can prevent automatic headlights from functioning and airbags from
deploying. With a full time staff of professional pattern makers and
advanced computer aided design (which was pioneered in the custom auto
accessory field be Coverking 20 years ago), Coverking has the tools to
assure a consistent, perfect fitting Custom Dash Cover. All Coverking
Custom Dash Cover patterns are CAD designed from the original vehicle
dashboard using sophisticated software. The process of making a Custom
Dash Cover pattern takes upwards of 2 weeks but results in a perfect
compliment to the original vehicle's dashboard. All cutouts, sensors,
cup holders and airbag openings are studied and the Custom Dash Cover is
designed not to interfere.

Coverking Custom Dash Covers are made in
California, U.S.A. by skilled professionals working in a clean and
comfortable environment. Far from a "sweatshop", Coverking Custom Dash
Covers are made by people who enjoy Medical Insurance, ample
opportunities for advancement, and more than a livable wage.
Unfortunately, well paid and happy employees often mean an expensive
product. Coverking uses technology and automation to keep prices down,
quality up and happiness high. A heavily computerized production area
optimizes every operation and results in superior quality at prices
often associated with third-world labor.
Coverking Custom Dash Covers and Rear Deck Covers are constructed using
a "zigzag" stitch. Other Dash Covers available on the market are made
using a "blind" stitch. Every stitching style has an intended use, for
Custom Dash Covers the optimal stitch style is the zigzag stitch.
Coverking's zigzag stitch takes more time and is more expensive, but the
results are worth the added expense - the stitch acts as a hinge,
allowing the cover to contour the surface of the dashboard. A zigzag
stitch also allows small pieces to be sewn together, because there is no
margin. A blind stitch results in the dash cover curling into the
stitch, it attracts dust, it lifts off the dashboard because material is
underneath the stitch, and it prevents small pieces from being sewn
together - due to the necessary margins. Coverking Custom Dash Covers
have been selected over competitors by many automotive accessory
retailers for their fit, materials, and construction.
