[Healeys] Refinishing dashboard wood

I have done this on a TR6. The lacquer was probably epoxy as it did not 
respond to solvents, so I had to sand away the coat. Be very careful as 
the wood surface may be a very thin veneer easily damaged by sanding. 
use 400 grade. I used many coats of boat lacquer to finish the dash to 
build up before sanding the top coat smooth, first with 600, followed by 
2000 and a cutting compound to achieve a highly glossy finish.

Not difficult but very tedious.

Also, what stain can I use on the wood since I’m likely to have to do some restaining? My car is a 67 BJ8. Thanks in advance for the advice.
