I just finished redoing my dash. Check the yellow pages for a hardwood
specialty store. I got the veneer and the glue for under twenty bucks.
I used a dark walnut, which is not stock but it looks beautiful! It took
me several hours to carefully carve out the holes with a razor knife, but
it looks better than the original.
The stuff comes in sheets with a paper backing that you glue right to the
surface. Make sure that you fill the holes and sand everything smooth,
so you get good adhesion. By the way, I had to put a seam down the
middle because the veneer wasn't wide enough to cover the whole dash.
But it still looks good.
Hope this helps,
