I went mostly with the veneer. I had problems with the control panel, the metal plate wasn't straight enough to take the veneer so I did it in solid wood.  Other than that the only hard part was the glove box where you have to make the curve.  I sanded it to make the angle a little less and then steamed the veneer a bit and massaged it into place (took a couple of trys to get it right.  I wouldn't worry about what's "right", just look for some veneer that you like. DONT go to home depot, find a good wood shop near you or or on the web.  I've got some bubinga I could let you have since it's a Jensen project.  I used curly maple for mine but would have used the bubinga if I'd had it at the time.

I seem to remember one of the jensen regulars did it in solid, the pics should be somewhere on here....

I'll put up a photo or two if I get some time in the next few days.
