IVA under-dash

Post by simonjrwinter » Mon Jan 14, 2019 9:24 am

To “block-off” the under dash area for IVA requirements, what have people used, and what method of fixing?
Any pics appreciated too....
Thanks

Hi Dave,

Only going by what others have said. The IVA documents don’t seem to be specific.
(Although it’s quite possible I may be interpreting them incorrectly)

You only need to cover anything "sharp" that projects below the horizontal line of the bottom of the dash.
Or the bottom of the steering wheel on the drivers side. ;-)

I fitted some 3mm Black Polycarb sheet that was cut and lightly folded to suit both sides (Column cut out needed on the drivers side) all fixed with Velcro strip. Mr Tester did go under with his "dome" and commented on how neat the solution was.

I didn't do anything - just made sure nothing hung down below the lower edge of the dash.
