    Dash/Windshield Glare

    Hey guys, need some help, searched for a bit and couldnt find a thread for this.

    I am getting really bad glare on the windshield driving during the day. My dash is armoralled for protection against the sun, but the glare is driving me nuts.

    I know the SWRT uses a felt dash that prevents glare. Is there anything availible to remedy this? Any help is of course appreciated!

    thanks

    When I was in Az everyone i know had a dash mat, which was basically a matching carpeted pad to reduce or eliminate the glare on those lovely 115 degree days hahahah..i would call the dealer and see if they have any depending on you location and if you are on the east coast check online or call a fla or az/ca etc dealership and im sure they would have them and then just have it shipped to you

    Polarized sunglasses will eliminate most or all of the glare. Lets you see better while driving too.

    Throw away the armorall and use the cali car duster on the interior too.

    Works great for me.

    I don't know if this will help or not, but Meguiar's makes an interior detail product. It cleans and protects, but doesn't leave any shine. I use it on both my cars, and while you still will have some glare (my 06 does, but I assume its the dash color) it is worlds better than armor all.
    You can pick it up at any auto parts store.

    Armor All is an old product that does not do nearly as well as others.

    My preference? A slightly damp towl to dust on car wash day. No glare.

    You can always take the dash out and flock it...

    If you have started using Armor All you have to keep using it to keep your dash from cracking. It shines things up, but is so aromatic that it leaches the plasticizers out.

    Armor All also will fog up your windows. The chemicals that leach out are airborne and they condense on the windows.

    I will not let it near my car.

    Sorry, you are doomed.
