Some of the wood trim in my 1990 300SE looks kind of "milky" or "cloudy". I just bought the car and I'm afraid someone may have tried to clean the wood with somethng they should't have used. I know I can get it all refinished but I'm wondering if there's anything that I can try myself first. Thanks!

Search the Shop Forum archives on this topic.

I would recommend trying some VERY light applications of #9 and #7 (yes, the same stuff we use on the paint) for cleaning/reconditioning. Once you get it where you like it (or it is as good as it is gonna get) protect with #26. Use only the Mirror Glaze wax, as the Gold Class has other ingredients that don't do well on wood.

With the fragile wood technique is very important. Use no more than the weight of the cloth/rag if possible. Also be sure to use a rag with 100% natural fibers. That wood swirls/scratches easier than the paint.

Good Luck and if you need anything further feel free to ask...Lee
