When I got my used CMax the dealer had it valeted and it looks like they made the dashboard all shiney. It all looks very nice until the sun comes out!


When the sun shines I get glare from the dashboard and all you can see in the windscreen is a reflection of the dashboard & not the road!
Anybody got any little tips for dulling the dash?

Also, try a damp sponge with washing up liquid and wipe over the dashboard. That will get rid of the "shine". Dry it off with a old tea towel and then apply the matt wipes.

Tried the washing up liquid, it worked a treat. May need another coat but I can see where I am going now. Thanks

I would think that having got the worst off, you should wipe what is left with baby wipes. Cheaper than the matt wipes and will clean & protect the dashboard.

I always carry a packet in the car and a small tip, if painting with gloss paint and you get it on your skin, use baby wipes. Works everytime!!
