Hi All

I had a go at making a 60's period works rally dashboard yesterday, Ive only made the drivers side so far but it turned out pretty well. It took a few hours to make but this was mainly due to having to make jigs etc to make some of the folds in the metal. All I need to do now is stick it in primer and paint it with some 'period' style paint

Oh and I made it for a left hand drive car, as im going to try and sell it on ebay, ive noticed alot of people abroad like their 'works' goodies

pictures to follow this evening.

If you search on Google for 'Wrinkle finish paint' you will find tonnes of the stuff.

Best buy 2 tins though, that stuff can be tricky.

Looking good though mate.

hammered paint isn't right, wrinkle finish is the stuff, you have to build it up in layers, left to right, wait 10 min, top to bottom, wait 10 min, then diagonaly, then you have to bake it.
