Finally pics of the hydrographics. Keep in mind that I purposely "brightened" up the shade of the burlwood to make mine pop. Just personal preference. I am sure that you can get this material to match factory shade, if you want to stay totally original. Sorry it took so long to get pics up...
It is much brighter in the sunlight. (See pics)

Bringing this topic back to life since it has good info for people considering hydro dipping. I just got a pic from the folks doing the hydro dipping on my parts. As you can see I got my top pieces of my console done along with my B&M shifter plate and B&M shifter knob. I decided to go with a custom design of black with silver flames instead of the burlwood. Beats buying a whole new repro console when really the only bad pieces are the top pieces and hydro dipping makes them look like new. Had a company in Raleigh, NC do mine.

It is almost like a sticker except that it isn't. The film or applica is placed in a tub of water and allowed to get wet, and then they spray something on it and then they take your part and they dip it into the water/film and it adheres to your part and then they apply a clear coat to help protect it. Down and dirty explanation. I have a link to a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2KR-bCKQCA These folks did mine.
