It's veneer. Specifically it's veneer on both sides of an aluminum core. I
*think it's one ply but it may be two. I *think it's 1/42 vener, older
cars have... get this 1/64 veneer.
To strip it you use paint stripper and steel wool. You can scrape it but
NEVER sand it.
No matter how careful you are or how fine the sandpaper is, you'll go
right thriogh the veneer.

PERFECT information. I get the picture loud and clear. Veneer is what I
thought might be the case. They could have easily put in "thick" veneer
given that all wood with high use need refinishing. Other parts of the car
design I really enjoy. I have spent the day cleaning the switches. Amazing
how much debris gets into that little hole of a switch over time. I did both
the window and door swithes. They are "chock full" of parts B-B's little
springs contacts etc but once you do one the others are easy to do (as long
as you do not loose any parts when you first pop them open). I thought
changing the headlight was a snap too. They actually designed to be replace
since the bulb does burn out! I also like the position of the oil filter (
although my BMW goes them one step better i.e..) filter is in front) on top
back where you can get at it with having plastic surgery on your hands to
make them smaller so you can get the filter off! HA! wolf
