As the title implies.

I am looking for a dash mat for the 280SE

As long as it is not torn, I am interested...

thanks

Until very recently, at least, MB Spares had them but they were only in blue.

Dear Michel

are you looking for the mat for sun protection or for the looks inside the car?


I noticed one day when in an MB might have been a W123 or W116, can't remember that on a hot day it was just as hot under the mat as it was on top,

not really sure how well the mats do protect the dash.

I toyed with the idea of two mats stitched toegther,


In my opinion a $10 tin foil sunshade would offer better protection and keep out more nasty heat which as you know destroys interiors.




Kind Regards
Des

Why not change the dash itself - you know, replace it with a good one. I'd imagine that one day you'd want to sell the car, and it's be a lot easier with a good dash installed. The job's not that bad - you could get Jerry to do the 'donkey-work' (as in pulling out seats and gearbox console, and we'd find someone to replace the dash.

I do have an excellent dash on hand, but unfortunately I would need decent money for it. Regards, Styria

No, I think a $50 dash mat is the right fix, I doubt Michel wants to go to that much trouble to sell a 280SE?
Des may be right, I don't know if they are any good for keeping heat out, and I use the foil covers on all my cars, but they are useful for hiding a cracked dash, and slightly better looking.

Dash mats dont stop the heat as Des has noticed but they do stop some of the UV and IR radiation which is the real killer for the dash.

The dash mats are definitely manufactured somewhere here in WA as I have had one made in the last few years.

If you get stuck let me know and I will find the place as I am sure they will still have the pattern.

I presume you want black.
