    Dashboards are minutely inspected by car companies. I regularly see a lot of them rejected and piled up at a junk dealer in Pallavaram, chennai. Maybe it is from Ford or hyundai.

    Are you sure?

    The same thing happened with the Palio D. Guess what - the upper layer was a caked-on layer! The result of repeated use of dashboard sprays and what not. I had the entire dashboard scrubbed clean by some chemical (used by the wash station guys) and the caked-on layer was removed. What remained was the real dashboard and the color. Still looking nice and new.

    Re: Dashboard Glare - Tips and tricks to negate it.

    I'm positive. I'll post a close-up pic later for your reference. But it most certainly is not a caked-up polish layer. Its a rubber-ish black paint that can be peeled off ( somewhat akin to peeling off dried fevicol from our hands after an application ).

    Notice the dark top layer and the bottom layer.

    I use the Meguiars dash board polish spray which i bought from 3m outlet. Its non glossy and does not reflect. Its kind of matte polish. I am quite happy with that.

    That's a good one. It's called Meguiar's Natural Shine. Gives a matte look, but make sure you don't overspray. Wipe away the excess product immediately.

    Can anyone using Meguiar's product post a photo of their polished dashboard?

    Can you find out the composition of that chemical solution? Or, can you suggest any other alternative solution? I'll try a DIY this weekend to try and peel away the entire top coat. Maybe I'll end up lucky like you did! :)
