The MG Owners Club UK sell high quality burr walnut overlays for all the
dashboard, the console, a gear knob, door cappings and even a burr walnut
arm rest.  Any of the British classic car magazines should give you a
contact number.  I had a BGT V8 fitted with it to the radio console and the
door cappings.  Looked great but cost a fair bit.
