Not sure of the beltway of putting this, but I want to paint wood on the interior of a car. What is the best way to do this?

Wow, that's insane.

Do you use decal paper or regular paper and glue it on?

Close to what I want, did you use the "wood" base enamel with streaks of darker brown or the "rust" color?

Artist's oils work well too. There are lots of tutorials online, here is one.

I have painted wood grain on interiors in the past. I use Tamiya acrylic bottle paint. I lay down a base color of Dark Yellow. I then use Flat Brown and dry brush streaks to represent the darker grain. I let dry for a day or 2 then shoot Clear Orange through my airbrush over the entire surface. Then i hit it with the canned Tamiya TS-13 (Gloss coat). Lastly a very thin dark brown wash blends everything together. Sorry no pics. Danger
