Looking for info on the best possible choice to redo my wood grain trim pieces!
I have the two dash wood grain pieces nos, but if have them refinished if they would match!
Any advice, or options would help thank you!

If your going to refinish all of it look into hydro printing. You will be amazed. Just type in hydro printing there's a lot about it on line.

What kind of car? I notice in your old posts you mentioned a 64 Hawk, but they don't have wood grain on the dash.

In the black walnut
On the dash and down the sides of the door panels

It's called Hydro graphics. Think of it as a giant water transfer decal. Then the clear over it, and it's very durable

Are you looking for choice of stains and finish?

You might want to check out some of the forums at the sites for Fine Woodworking, Woodworker's Journal, Wood magazine and others. I used to subscribe to a few of those and just about every month there were articles about types of finishes and finishing techniques.

Terry Frye (in Wisconsin) an SDC member does EXCELLENT woodgraining. He has a booth at many SDC meets.

You're right of course, I was thinking about the gauge area. That's the only place my 62 had wood grain. :o
