Has anyone tried to re-veneer their dash? Ive found a walnut veneer but not sure how to get the high gloss finish. Is it a resin?

Not from a mini but this is the dash I modified in my campervan. The “wood” is actually very thin Formica which is obviously waterproof and extremely hard wearing and scratch resistant.

here is my home made dash and centre console, made using fleece and fibreglass resin then covered with 4 way stretch leather effect vinyl.

This thread is great, I'm really interested in how people actually FIX their dash in place, it would be great if some posters could put picutres of the back of their dash and the fittings and the brackets used as I haven't got a clue (I have the '93 mini with the miserable 3 clocks in a plastic housing and a bit of felt round the back).
