Default dash board cover

I just bought an inferno red cruiser last week and noticed that the passenger side air bag cover hes a terible glare when the sun shines on it as it is also painted inferno red like the body. I looked for dashboard covers on the net but found no clear pictures whether the dasboard cover covers the air bag cover. Maybe it shouldn't for airbag operation reasons. Is there any othe viable cure for this?

Are your front windows tinted? I have an Inferno Red cruiser with the front windows tinted and I do not have the problem you are mentioning. Another solution would be to have a graphic painted or place a vinyl graphic on it.

Don't have the problem either, but agree with suggestion above.
Try StreamlineDesign.Com - he's the greatest for vinyl. If you don't see what you want - ask for it!

Not that I'm aware of, I had mine tinted after I bought it.

Umm...sunglasses? [8D]

heh, seriously, it may be from the pearlcoat (metallic particles)? I have tangerine pearlcoat, but I do not have the glare. What have you used to clean and shine the ABS cover? That could be the culprit.

Can't tint your whole front window in Oregon. It's ticket material.

ahhhh, one nice thing about Florida, you can pretty much drive anything. No inspection, no Emissions, and except for the front window you can pretty much black all of them out and not get hassled.
