Default any advice is welcome!

Ok so I just ordered my dash cap from Mikes Montes, my dash is kinda cracky. My question is has anyone ever installed on of these before and do you have any tips, tricks, advice or anything I should know or look for as this will be my first time doing one of these. Thanks a ton in advance.

Dash cap= a hard plastic cover that goes over the original dash to hide cracks and other defects. It came in the mail the other day and looks good so far. Gonna be installing it today.

lmao,cant believe alot of people havent heard of the dash cap a.k.a dash cover.The best advice i can give is prolly start at one end the other using the adhesive that comes with it in problem areas to ensure that cover stays flush.Also do install in warmer weather with a helping hand if one is available.If i find the instructions i ran across not long ago i will send them to ya.I thought about ordering one also from Dixie monte carlo parts"thats where i might of saw install process".i have a couple of small cracks but i use an custom dash cover i ordered(30$) and fits and looks good!check my monte out on [email protected] has video of interior,etc
