    Thanks. I believe it is a Rosewood veneer. I don't believe CG is the same as Carl Visser. He is actually a cabinet maker, and makes dashes on the side. I've seen several of his in other cars, in a variety of finishes, and all look great.

    I have a Carl Visser Dash for my car. The stenciling is on it and the whole
    thing looks great! Can’t wait to install it.

    While I appreciate well figured wood on gunstocks and certain pieces of furniture what you have there Walt is what I consider THE appropriate dash for a TR6...

    Depends what you are looking for. I've seen many of Randy Keller's (Prestige) dashes, and they are drop-dead gorgeous , and JrinAZ's feedback is the first negative I have heard. However, they are typically finished in highly-lacquered gloss, and some may not be seeking that look.

    Of the Big 3 suppliers, TRF always seem to produce a quality product that approximates the original finish well. You say "reproduction" so was feeling you may want something close to original

    Carl Visser, as mentioned earlier produces very nice dashes, with a satin finish. He sells a v high quality product, at a reasonable price, typically $275, unless you want some custom features. You can choose the colour of the veneer. He sells mainly on ebay. My missus bought mine as an Xmas present a few years ago, and it's holding up very well. Bit darker than stock.

    I purchased a dash from Prestige made with African rosewood that after a few years began cracking. I took it off and brought it to Randy to show him. He offered me nothing by way of fixing or exchanging the dash. Absolutely did not stand behind his product. Very expensive mistake!!!!

    C G Autowood (cgautowood.com). Each dash is unique, meaning that you are purchasing the actual dash that you see online. Good variety, some “exotic” woods. They may or may not have some offered on eBay at times.
    This is the dash that I purchased from C G Autowood during restoration.
