Default Suggestions for rattle can base color 34 woodgraining?

I used to be way into woodgraining, now I am lazy, but want to do the top “‘dash” strip in my Model A pick up.

Any suggestions for rattle can brand and color that is close to the original 1934 base color? Thanks

A medium shade maroon colour is what I have noticed on the backside of the 1934 dash panels. Regards, Kevin.

What kind of phone do you have? I have an iPhone and after I take pictures, they appear in the Photos app on my MAC. I simply drag them from the Photos app into a folder on my desktop and from there, I can post them online. (I usually have to shrink the image size so FordBarn will add them to my post.) (Also, if you're not using Apple stuff, I'm of absolutely no help.)

Big Job.. If I just want a few pictures from my phone and my computer is not close, I just email them to myself then save them when I am on the computer.

Using the USB connection you need to find the phone files, then find the file containing the photos, then move the photos you want over to a file on your computer. I would really encourage you to learn how to do this and back up your photos often. One phone malfunction and they are all gone! I am sure there is information online that details how to do this for your model phone.

I have the training wheels and inks, just looking for the base color idea, and the rust co.ored primer may be perfect

Thanks; what Tubman said is what I use to do, but 'that' don't work no more either, which
that was easy. Back to the subject- you can also use sharpies for details but the course
acid cheap brush works best. Keep in mind real wood has blemishes, not picture perfect
not like sign painting. Let dry overnight and the clear coat is the developer..sam

Rustoleum Red Automotive Primer, black printers ink, brown printers ink, spray clear over it.
You can layer it you get the effect you want. Follow the directions on the can about recoating times. If you recoat too soon it can lift.
I have even used Minwax wood stain (mahogany) as a color.
Thin with mineral spirits so it won't lift the primer.

I used the Grain-It Burl plate . Because they can't ship spray cans internationally I matched the base coat off their colour charts and got the dash sprayed at a paint shop After I had done it all I realized I had not done the glove box hinge. I used red oxide primer as a base coat and looks exactly the same as the matched base coat at a fraction of the cost -Karl
