    OK got the stain and varnish on the wood parts,good enough for me. Yes the dash topper is real wood too. Will have to remove for shiny high gloss black body paint coming soon.
    The walnut stain came fairly close to matching the steering wheel that J.J. gave me. I also redid the wood slats on folding rack,so when I do have that on,it will all tie together well.

    Looks great, Bat! I'm not saying that your parts need anything else, but when I read a woodworking magazine article, "Finishing Your Finish", it opened my eyes to the fact that the same process we use for "color sanding" and then buffing out the final coat on auto paint applies equally to wood if you want that "smooth as glass" look. I use 0000 steel wool as the applicator for Johnson's or Minwax brand paste wax (basically the same product), rubbing briskly but not too aggressively and going easy on the edges, then buff it off with an old T-shirt or other soft cloth. Gives it that nice glow, and protects your finish some, too.

    Bat, I always enjoy seeing developments based on open Model A bodies. However I see you last posted at mid day so you did not have any difficulty attaching the nice pictures. Recently I am unable to attach pictures so I am wondering if you have noticed any difference in the procedure?

    The wood trim that came on repop 28 to 31 folding rack was to red to match,so sanded an stained it also but it is some type of red wood and don't seem to take the stain like the other dose,but little better match now,really only going to run the folding rack when wife is coming with me,but don't look too bad now.

    Bat,
    If you ever decide you want that folding rack to match the darker shades try using Aniline Wood Dyes, mixed to any shade you want - Aniline Dyes

    I agree, it's more than "...good enough..." it looks just fine as it is. I have not used the aniline dyes yet myself, but learned about them at a small custom furniture shop in Maine. They use mostly maple, some cherry, and a few exotics but lots of clear pine for stool & chair seats but they get precise color match with different woods mated together. The shop owner told me the secret is aniline dyes, and that they can precisely match an existing finish, like if someone has a table and four chairs but wants them to make two more chairs to match. They use an alcohol lacquer top coat, sanded and waxed. Beautiful stuff!

    I just mentioned it for a future reference, and in case someone else is doing woodwork and might be struggling to get the color they want, especially with different types of wood.

    Roger that might come in handy with scratches in old wood furniture too! Bat I love the gloss and the way the wood has a three dimensional look to it.
