WTB: w111 coupe wood set


I would like to buy a wood set for W111 coupe that is restored, or in good condition, or needs to be restored.

If you're looking for less than restored, some of the wood you have should be usable.

Two things to keep in mind....

- During refinishing, different batches of wood can be made to look the same, but only if they are are being restored at the same time. If you try and restore them piecemeal, it gets very difficult for the restorer to match the colors.

- If you have some pieces in one wood style and some in another, your restoration guy can fix that.

- The car was hand made, so was the wood. The dash face wood can have the holes in the wrong spots if you try and move that piece from one car to another. If there's any piece of the original to salvage. Make it that one.

- If you do use the front piece from another car, count the options and position of various switches and things. Adding another hole is doable. Removing one is tough.

Well I pulled out mine few days ago and it is really in poor condition. Not just the veener is bad, but the wood under the veener is poor. So, I would like to buy a restored set, or the set that needs to be repainted, but doesn't need new veener. I hope I will find something!

Unfortunately, my face wood is in the worst condition of all pieces!
