I have a 2007 Classic with Dark Charcoal Interior with a cracked dash and looking to purchase a Coverlay Dash Cover. Has anyone installed one of these and what color would match up the best with the Dark Charcoal interior from their color options? I was thinking the Dark Gray looks the closest in color.

Thinking of similar before our dash cracks.. I would
Go dark as possible… anything light color will reflect from inside… but polarized glasses will help the issue.

Had a dash cover for years. I recommend repainting/dyeing it again instead. It's easy to do. Steel wool, adhesion promoter, stain, and clear is what I used. SEM makes great products that adhere better than the factory dye did. You can buy it online or at your automotive paint stores. Recommend testing the color of the dye before you shoot everything.

Did you pull the trigger on this yet? Your local automotive paint store is usually the best option. Paint code should be on the glove box tag, but they aren't always correct. I need to get one for an old Suburban I have for the same reason...the cracking dash.

Just put an inexpensive cover on our 2017… with the black/charcoal/whatever color dash. I had wanted to put one since new but wanted warranty to be in effect… you never know what may be used as excuse to “deny” responsibility… or so I have experienced..

if you get some trunk or headliner material it will function well, even if not “molded”.. a small square of double side tape just to keep from sliding would be ok.. a fabric “cover” is a good idea

I did end up purchasing and installing the Coverlay Dash Cover. Turned out great and looks like stock. I don't have any pics of it installed but below is what I purchased.

Two issues for me is the small round side vents on each side of the dash need some fitment work because once you install the Coverlay it doubles the thickness of the dash so you cannot just pop the little vents back in. I had to grind some of the plastic off on the back of the round vents and glue them on to fit properly. Also, the hole for the headlight sensor on top of the dash needed to be opened up a little more. Otherwise, it fit great and you really can't tell it's not original.
