Similar to yours......Been laid flat since it arrived and been on the dash a fair while now.


Strange as we joke last year about not leaving it on or not rolling it up . We were all wrong :lol:
I wonder when that sun really hits them they might start to flatten out

I doubt it. For almost as long as I've had it, mine's been laying flat on a window ledge that gets sun for most of the day. It's still wrinkled.

Andrew.

It was a bad move to fold them so I don't think they will ever be 100% flat now.

Hopefully now they roll or box them they are better.

That’s a shame about the sun Andrew I suppose now In Steve’s next book we could ask him to call it the dash mat that stays wrinkled for the car we all promised our selfs :lol:

Today I had to drop some plastic boxes down to my mum and dads and got them in the Capri so I thought I would not use the radio and keep the dash Matt in place , so at 60MPH on the Motoway I thought this is not working as the air coming threw the vents blows the Matt all over the place .
So it got chucked in the back . :lol:

Anyone tried a heat gun on them to get the creases out?
