    Hey guys,

    I get a ton of glare from my dashboard on my windshield on sunny days. Aside from those carpeted dash mats, are there other options? I've tried letting it get nice n dusty, but that didn't help haha


    I will eventually tint the front windshield, but I was hoping for a temporary, less expensive fix.

    Thanks!

    You using armor all high gloss? That definitely won’t help

    Oddly enough, I just bought several yards of black faux suede from Joann's tonight. Not sure if there's a sale going on in every store but I just got it for over half off.
    The plan is to wrap the pillars and the dash. Something similar to the below...which is from the Devolro Tundras.
    Not sure about the doors...

    What brand of polarized sunglasses do you have? They are not all the same. Some are set at different angles which will have a dramatic impact on certain angles of glare.
