    I'm in the middle of doing my dash and need to find some aluminum, stainless or metal sheet that is printed or textured like old stock dashes like Auburns , Cadillacs and Packards, I included a picture of a 31 cadillac v-16 dash since that is what I'm working with, I want this so I can make my gauge panel insert. I don't want to use Engine turned panels in the center of the dash just the outer panels.

    This is one I took off another post......

  2. I saved a textured bottom panel from an old aluminum storm door thinking it might make a cool dash panel sometime. Now, ....... where did I store that? :eek:

    Find an old hardware store and look for replacement panels for the bottom of storm/screen doors. Probably nothing printed, but you should find some textured panels.

    Or go to mcmaster-carr

    and search for "aluminum sheet" and then select textured or perforated.
