Re: [DML] Dash mats....

I was in the same situation where my dash was in great shape and I wanted 
to keep it that way (didn't like the thought of it baking in the sun while 
I was at work or driving). The dash mat I purchased used velcro strips to 
hold it in place. Since I didn't want these strips showing when I remove 
the mat, I decided to keep it place using another method. On the drivers 
side, I just used gravity since the contour of the dash and binnacle keeps 
it in place. For the passenger side, I bent a flat piece of metal so it 
would hook the defrost vent. I then attached some velcro to the metal. This 
keeps the mat from sliding off.

I've done this for nearly two years and the dash still looks great 
underneath the mat. I can't comment on the mold issue since my car only 
gets wet when I wash it.
