Want my trim to look like burlwood

sup Guys,

I have a '01 Chevy Malibu and have already painted the interior trim pieces silver, but I'm not as happy with them anymore. I would like to paint all the trim to match the burlwood strip that runs the length of the dash. I think it would give the interior of the car a very refined feel. Does anyone know how to paint plastics to look like wood, sepcifically burlwood. I have been detail painting for a while onscale models, so I am fairly proficient. Also, I use an airbrush and compresor, or would this be something easier done with a brush?

Thanks guys,
Chris

I know what your talking about, but that would only work if the grain were up and down, but burlwood grain looks like a whole buncha circles and knots, kinda hard to explain, but looks good. It has a realy expensive feel to it, all though I know its no where near that. I'm gonna go by the hobby store and see if they have any ideas too.
