BMW E9 Dashboard Restoration

Timber is a wonderful material to incorporate into any design concept.  The look and feel of wood surfaces can be luxurious and add dimension to something that otherwise might be bland.  Car makers realised that real wood in the interior of vehicles was the height of luxury and many high-end makers used it for dashboards and interior trims.  However, age, heat and lack of proper care can cause the material and finish to deteriorate over the years.  Most enthusiasts want a sympathetic restoration of the aged parts rather than replacement, bringing their pride and joy back as close as possible to original condition.  These BMW E9 dashboards and trims were in a bad way when they arrived, showing splits and cracks in not only the veneer surface but swelling of the substrate.

And so Renowned began the long task of repairing many small (and some large) issues to get these back into showroom condition.

Complete and ready to install back in the vehicles.  Don’t they look great!
