While the Dash-Surfer might look like the unholy union of an ironing board and a piece of exercise equipment, you’ll immediately appreciate the utility of the thing if you’ve ever spent any length of time working under a dashboard. Without any support, the kneeling and twisting can turn into a real pain in the neck, back, shoulders, etc. The Dash-Surfer provides a level and stable surface to lie down on while working under the dash, eliminating the stress and strain of the more conventional method.

TTD Industries pads the Surfer’s plywood surface with 1″ of foam rubber and covers it with heavy-duty vinyl.  The steel base adjusts to heights between 13 and 25 inches, making it suitable for anything from a low-slung sports car to a one-ton truck.

You’ll pay $85 for the 36″-long model — the 46″ version is five dollars more.

    Sniff… Brings a tear to my eye just remembering the fun I had rewiring my 68 mustang. Well, actually the tear in my eye is probably just from remembering how bad my back ached after doing that job.

    Don’t know if I’d use it enough to justify $85-90, but there’s no question when you need it, nothing else will do.

    This article gave me a big laugh. I just came in from “Dash Surfing” my ’95 E150 for a brake light problem. No success, so I’ll probably be wishing I had one of these tomorrow. Or maybe a board and a 5 gallon pail would work…

    Aside to Wheels17,

    A mechanic’s stool will do in a pinch. That’s what I use.

    I’ve got where I’ll pull out the front seat before getting all contorted about it.
