Grain-It Technologies has complete kits that can make you dash look as new and they have all the info on the correct patterns for your exact car. It is a lot of work but you can do this yourself, sending it off and having it done is usually $1200 - $1500.00

Just be sure and find a real good machine shop that will be accurate on the crank turning, so get your brgs and have the rods redone so the crank clearances can be set correctly. . Also figure on having new exhaust seats installed.

On my 1939 model, I had to take it to a shop and use the Hydraulic press to get the old one out.

I restored my wheels, 1939 Packard Six, but before, they did have original pinstriping, including the spare. It was a very time consuming project but the end results were very good.

I used the rubber pads made for that from Steele Mfg. Some models also had a leather wrap around the leafs but I don't think the "six" had that covering.

My '39 Six, purchased new by my father, had the firewall in body color and during my restoration the research seemed to show that it was correct. The inner fender panels were Black.

I did the steering wheel myself, it wasn't hard and seems to be holding up well. The wheel was in pretty good shape to start with just having some cracks in it. I "V"ground the cracked areas, mixed up some JB Weld and put on, sanded it when dry. Then I epoxy primered the wheel and shot a base coat / clear coat on it, it turned out pretty nice, I also re painted the horn button at the same time.

I got my cloth from Bill Hirsch, he supplied the headliner material and carpet that I decided on. My car originally had a front rubber mat ( I found some remnants) but now it has a very nice Mercedes wool. I had my front seat bottom cushion thinned down to give me more room under the wheel so I had to use foam instead of the springs. I have no plans to inter a Concours show but wanted a nice car, my father purchased it when new. I did my own wood grainning of the dash and windows, a very big project.
