I can't remember where I got the quote from, but it was from an outfit I found through "The Star". I was quoted $200 to do the ash tray and center console for my W116. I had made an attempt at repairing the usual cracks. I lightly sanded the surface and then applied some clear urethane. Well, can you say fisheyes. I guess what MB used in 1980 was lacquer shellac, which does not agree with urethane. I would sand it all down to the wood, but I don't know what color stain to use to match the wood in the dash.
I haven't had it done as of yet, but someday I'll get it done.
