I Just Bought A Toupee…

Well…kinda sorta.

No…not for myself…but for my Ford Bronco II. Let me explain…

This past summer I put some time and money into my 1986 Ford Bronco II and got it looking really good…

One thing I forgot that I wanted to do…I forgot about until I arrived here in the sunny south land. I had wanted to do something about my exposed dashboard leather before the sun starts to crack it. The tan leather had already turned quite black from sun exposure for 25 years but had not yet started to disintegrate…

So I ordered a dashboard cover made of sun-resistant poly carpet that is molded to custom-fit the dash…

It arrived a couple of days ago. As promised in the advertisement…it fits nicely and now the dash leather is now protected from the harsh south land sun. I ordered a taupe color which closely matches the color of the seats.

Oh…FYI. According to online dictionaries, a toupee is a wig to cover a bald spot. Back in the olden day it was referred to as a “rug”. A rug is also known as a carpet. Hence the title of today’s Blog. I thought is was kind of cute and catchy!  🙂
