Are you painting that black?

Nope ...

Bought a wood graining kit that was how the dashes was done back in the 20's, 30's and 40's ...

Matching the grain and color that the Caddy's horn button has ..

Even the gear shift knob will be matching ..

Getting a bit fancy with adding a dark ribbon in the center of the knob ..

At least that's the plan ..
Got to have a little color in my life ..

Years back I painted the dash the stock almond color that IH used ..
It was time for something new ..

Do hope that it will ..
Got a lot of effort in it to make happen ..
(Not to mention $$)

"Swamp Rat" talked me into doing the wood graining .. Lol



( Think the part about being a rocket scientist did it for me !! )

Crack is looking good ..
Does seems like the union of the two pieces turned out better than I expected ... Yippy-Ki-Yi- Ya

This might turn out looking mighty fine, if I don't screw-up the wood graining ... :crybaby:
