Excellent job!  Looks so much better. Thanks for sharing your project. A lot of pain and suffering dealing with all of the wiring I’m sure. 
What’s on that small add on control pad that is attached to the drivers side panel?

They are the controls for the camera system I installed.

Excellent work, where did you purchase Burl materials and what type of tools you used for cutting?  Looks like i found my new next project.

Burl purchased at Amazon. Cut with jig saw and top bearing router bits.

I have the same dash exactly, do you still have the template that could be used again for a dash like mine?

So he gets a good deal, free, because someone shared, but is not willing to let someone else have a good deal by sharing himself.

Nice attitude.

Nice attitude.

If he is on here he is probably getting the message.  If he is not on here why not give the mystery man Corkman's email?   Let him decide.

There is a fella on IRV2 that made his own burled wood dash.  This thread is actually about air leaks but he jumps in about post # 31showing his wood work    

Here is a link, hope it works .   https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/another-monaco-with-air-leaks-526003-3.html
