1936 Buick - paint finish on the glove box and instrument surround

My glove box door is not as faded as the rest of the original dash.  Someone advised that it was probably left open and not exposed to the sun when in storage for several years.  However, I believe it is a replacement with a working clock.

Paul,

I have good pictures of original window garnish and dash, as well as my results using "Grain -it Technologies" supplies. The results are great (in my humble opinion) and the process using Grain-Its stuff was not difficult. I am am electronically challenged so cannot post the pics here but will email them to you. Incidentally, the solid "black" of the dash is not actually full black, but as I recall, "Chancellor" black, which also has some fine metallic in it. If you have a decent original dash you may be able buff it back to life enough to see the metallic in it. I did so and was able to duplicate the color very closely.
