Default Pictures of my dash Hydro dipped in woodgrain

I thought I'd share pictures of what a dash hydro dipped looks like for the folks that want woodgrain but are not sure how to paint it themselves. I was hoping for a more burgundy wood color but I think it came out great and I'm happy with it.

I think it looks great! As long as all the pieces are the same I wouldnt worry about what shade it is.

Thanks for the comments. The cost for the dash plus 4 lower window garnish mouldings cost $180 + $25 for ordering film that they don't normally stock. I painted the 2 upper quarter window mouldings and rear window frame burgundy color to add more color to the interior.

Thanks, that's pretty reasonable

Sea slugs- After it is dipped it is clear coated with an Automotive grade clear coat paint. I believe the guy who dipped it said he uses PPG paints.
CW- I sent mine to a local company named Hog River Hydrographics. You should be able to find someone in your area that could also do this type of work. I think it's gaining popularity. I see videos on Facebook a lot of guys dipping all sorts of stuff.

I saw a demonstration of it at Julianos in Ellington Ct. I assume they still do it.

Saw a pic of a pale Yellow Roadster Pickup, with all the trim done in Woodgrain, I KNOW it's not original, but it sure looked CLASSY & RICH.
I'm sure Henry would have approved it.

The dash rail looks awesome , very impressive.

I had all of my moldings, window frames, dash and windshield stantions done this way. I brought them painted and rusted parts, they blasted them with a soft media, dipped and cleaned the parts. Then they primed and filled any pits. Then they put 2 coats of paint, then dipped the transfer. Finally they put a couple coats of clear and baked the finish dry.

The company I used is SMI. 40 Water Street; Amesbury MA 01913. I worked with Brendan Bartley. brendan@smipowder.com (978) 388-1601

I was especially satisfied with the job. They did 10 pieces for me, and it was around $450.00.

Good luck;

If this technology was around when Henry was making Model A's im sure he would approve of this process. Youtube has tons of videos showing it done from anything from army helmets to car rims.

They look great. Probably a lot better than the method used originally with roller.
