If I put an aftermarket carbon fiber cover over it, will it interfere with the airbag if it should go off?

Also, anyone make a matte carbon fiber insert? Gloss is not my preference. TIA!

Yes
A lot of people repaint their panels body color using factory touch up paint spray cans.

Never cover an airbag panel.

By “carbon fiber” do you mean a carbon fiber patterned dip or an actual carbon fiber replacement panel?

I doubt it will interfere with airbag deployment.

At most you end up with carbon fiber imprint on your face. How cool is that! :LOL:

Kidding aside, every stick-on cover I’ve seen looks cheap.

If I were to do something like that, I’d remove the OE covers and have them wrapped in a vinyl color/pattern of your choice.

There are videos on how to remove those covers. It takes a bit of work.

My main concern would be to introduce unwanted squeaks and rattles from taking the dashboard apart.
