Woodgraining for dash and window sills


Recommended Posts

Opening once again the problem of woodgraining on the dash and window reveals on my '41 Zephyr club coupe. Original body color of the car was black, does anyone know what the correct shades of woodgrain paint would be? There seems to be a real vacuum of information on this subject, I wonder if there was ever one of those great informative articles in "The Way of the Zephyr" sometime since 1968? Any information welcomed, thank you

Thanks Bill, I recently inquired to color-rite about some '41 colors by e-mail, and was informed that they do not do pre-war colors, but have heard from you and others that they do?? Guess they just don't want any new clients, like Doctors and Dentists. I am hoping to get some explanatory info about methods etc, as I have never attempted this process before, actually I would settle for a good decal if I could find one. Thanks again-
