:D, G'day Dean. Perhaps you could try wood with a flat reddish colour with a drop or two of white or light grey mixed in with both and then straight clear over this. Did those early Cadillacs have real or faux wood on the dashboards? I know a lot of American cars had faux woodgrain on the dash. I guess it doesn't really matter what the real cars had if you can make your model look authentic. Or is it a real one you're doing? There are a whole lot of you tube videos on different methods of faux woodgraining.
