1928 Dashboard
Home away from home

I have a 1928 533 that I would like to repair and refinish the dashboard. Currently the dashboard appears to have been 'refurnished' by putting vinyl wood-grain over the dashboard and possibly painting the instrument cluster. Attached is a picture.

Can anyone tell me if the dash was originally wood and the instrument cluster covered in leather? What should the correct materials be?

Thank You
