The plastic covering on my center dash has lifted and puckered around the gauges and some switches. Even though it fits like a glove, I was lucky enough to remove it intact (except for one corner tear). I’m looking for suggestions on how best to flatten it and re-apply it.
My rookie approach would be to mask the sides shown and apply something like 3M 90 on the horizontal surfaces. My reasoning is the covering fits so snugly I would not be able to slide it on if the sides have contact cement on them. Next I would assemble it and firmly roll it and then let it sit with weights on it for a day or so. I’m hoping the contact adhesive will be aggressive enough to flatten and hold the puckers.
1/ Has anyone removed and re-applied their OEM dash covering?
2/ What would you use (if anything) to re-adhere the sides that were masked?
3/ Is 3M 90 the best choice here?
