About 47 years ago I removed the clearcoat and re-sprayed my dash panels.  I did got completely get rid of the rust but I think they are still presentable to this day.  I just resprayed with clear coat in a spray can. The wood graining is my primitive attempt, done with a kit left over from doing furniture  48 years ago.   In addition to reproducing the 1940 Dash Plastic, Skip Boyer does the engine turning. His email is: richboy2@comcast.net   Actually I think engine turning
