Using drybrush technique, detailing instrument panels is easy as long as they have some raised details. Just dip a flat paintbrush in white colour, then wipe it on a clean piece of paper tissue until it stops leaving paint marks and slightly brush the raised panels. Same way you can simulate tear and wear using other colours on various parts and also prnonounce the highlights on object edges while the wash emphisazes the shadows.
