Word of caution regarding TRF and Moss TR6 dashes. Their dealer, which
the same, uses American walnut as the veneer.  The original dashes used
French Walnut.  The difference is in the color. The American is a much
color and looks nothing like the original French, which is a much
lighter, almost
orangish look.

I spoke to a vendor at Hershey's Antique Auto show who specializes in
dashes for 
British cars and he indicated that the French no longer allow the export
their walnut. I told him that I special ordered from TRF a teak dash and
he felt
this would be a much closer match to the original dash on my '70 TR6. As
usual, the
dash is back ordered with their (TRF) regular dash order, but was
recently told/
guessed that it should be in any time now!
