There are times, particularly morning, when sun reflects from the dash up on to the windshield. This produces an annoying image that interferes with what you are trying to look at ahead.  

The fix was simple.  We looked around a Walmart fabric department for material that looked the blackest/least reflective and bought a half-yard.  Folded in half it fits perfectly on the driver's side dash to eliminate the glare problem.

Good suggestion.

If you want to go fancy, buy a custom fit dash cover, sold on-line.  Just do a search.  The benefit to them is that they stay put and accomodate for defroster/air flow.  they are made well, fit well, and look real nice.  Black is ideal for reflection but poor for heat absorbsion.....a trade-off.

A black towel or two also works.   Smile
