need to make dash part for '91 350 SDL

Hi to all. My name is Louie Hanna. I am a cabinet maker living in Merritt Island Florida. I have been asked by my brother to make a dash part (shifter surround/switch plate) for a '91 350 SDL. I began by searching the internet thinking it would be cheaper than re inventing the wheel so to speak and could find none. I think the veneer Mercedes used on this is Zebra wood or Zebrano. Can anyone provide any details or input on this? I'm thinking if I have to make one I may as well make several. Someone else may need one. Please pardon me if I'm posting this in the wrong place. I've been a member here for a good 10 minutes now.

Louie, what's your actual question? It is zebrano, are you looking for the source of the wood or what?

350 SDL

I suppose what I was hoping for is a miracle. Something like "hey, I got a dozen of 'em and I want thirty nine cents each." Failing that I'd settle for a little general knowledge. Such as what kind of finish they use at the factory and yes, a good source for the Zebrano? Also has anyone on the forum done something similar?
