Dashboard rattle, any tricks to find it

I have a 2012 and there is this annoying rattle that seems to be around where the dashboard meets the A-pillar on the driver's side. I have removed the door card and looked inside the door, couldn't find anything. I removed the trim on the A-pillar, no luck there. Short of tearing the dash out is there any way of finding this rattle? It's not there all the time; it appears when you hit a certain vibration, usually when I am in 6th gear and putting some strain on the engine which causes the car to vibrate. I have pushed, pulled, pressed every part of the dash when it occurs but no luck finding it. Any suggestions?

Where the trim meets the windshield is a common point.

Wooden matchsticks and wedges. Like jkeaton said you look at the most obvious places and shim them so they can't rattle. Other than listening with a stethoscope it is easier to eliminate any spots that might rattle.
