Pattern Design

  • Modern vehicle dashboards are complex, with subtle curved shapes, trays, cupholders, sensors, airbag cutouts, and other considerations. It is common for dashcover manufacturers to take a short-sighted approach to the pattern design, and make a mediocre fitting pattern. Addressing the curves, sensors and cutouts results in a significant amount of time designing the pattern and later cutting and sewing the Custom Dash Cover in production. Because of this, many Custom Dash Cover manufacturers cut corners and produce a Custom Dash Cover which covers sensors, cupholders, and doesn't address some of the contours of the dashboard. At best, this produces a poor fit. At worst, it is a dangerous hazard which can prevent automatic headlights from functioning and airbags from deploying. With a full time staff of professional pattern makers and advanced computer aided design (which was pioneered in the custom auto accessory field be Coverking 20 years ago), Coverking has the tools to assure a consistent, perfect fitting Custom Dash Cover. All Coverking Custom Dash Cover patterns are CAD designed from the original vehicle dashboard using sophisticated software. The process of making a Custom Dash Cover pattern takes upwards of 2 weeks but results in a perfect compliment to the original vehicle's dashboard. All cutouts, sensors, cupholders and airbag openings are studied and the Custom Dash Cover is designed not to interfere.


  • Coverking Custom Dash Covers are made in California, U.S.A. by skilled professionals working in a clean and comfortable environment. Far from a "sweatshop", Coverking Custom Dash Covers are made by people who enjoy Medical Insurance, ample opportunities for advancement, and more than a livable wage.

Unfortunately, well paid and happy employees often mean an expensive product. Coverking uses technology and automation to keep prices down, quality up and happiness high. A heavily computerized production area optimizes every operation and results in superior quality at prices often associated with third-world labor.
Coverking Custom Dash Covers and Rear Deck Covers are constructed using a "zigzag" stitch. Other Dash Covers available on the market are made using a "blind" stitch. Every stitching style has an intended use, for Custom Dash Covers the optimal stitch style is the zigzag stitch. Coverking's zigzag stitch takes more time and is more expensive, but the results are worth the added expense - the stitch acts as a hinge, allowing the cover to contour the surface of the dashboard. A zigzag stitch also allows small pieces to be sewn together, because there is no margin. A blind stitch results in the dash cover curling into the stitch, it attracts dust, it lifts off the dashboard because material is underneath the stitch, and it prevents small pieces from being sewn together - due to the necessary margins. Coverking Custom Dash Covers have been selected over competitors by many automotive accessory retailers for their fit, materials, and construction.
