In any vehicle the dashboard reflects the "business end" of the car. The original dash was painted metal and was subsequently replaced with elm wood veneer over hardwood. This final restoration includes the use of carbon fiber laminated to hardwood for an updated state-of-the-art look. I initially attempted to laminate a pre-finished sheet of polymer impregnated carbon fiber to the wooden foundation. The result of this attempt resulted in a lumpy uneven finish. I then contacted a company that makes carbon fiber skate boards and they agreed to laminate the carbon fabric to the wood with resin using hi pressure equipment that yielded satisfactory results as shown here.
