  • 61 Hawk Dash Inlay

    Does anyone know how the swirl pattern was created on the inlay?

    Any idea what the inlay is made of?

      It was called "engine turned" finish, popular years ago and still used alot. If you need new overlays you can get the material and cut it up yourself or have a company make them to order--here's a link to one.

        If you have some time(something I have loads of, lol) you can do this on your own. I did some with some cut up dowel rod and a drill press for a console plate for the '55. Unfortunately, I'll have to make a new one, as I made the mistake of doing it with plated steel instead of aluminum, and it was installed in a car with a window permanently down(no interior or anything yet), so over the winter it turned into a rusty mess.
