My euro 1985 500sel's Burl wood center around the shifter is relay badly cracking and chipping some of the cracks are all the way trough. Does any one make them. What would they cost? How good do they look refurnished and what would be evolved.
THANKS

Dan, Have you tried some of the wood dash places like exoticwooddash.com? I have no idea on prices, but I would think refinishing will work but might be pricey or might not come out looking the same. From what I understand about the wood in these cars is that some of it is very thin.

Also you might want to check some of the auto recyclers and or parts shop here.

That will hopefully aid in your search. I myself could use a new console piece for my benz, but for now I have bigger and more important things to do to the car.

Cosmetics get done last hehehe, its the stuff underneath I plan on taking care of first.

Good luck on your search.

Alon

I was able to find wood paneling for 107 models here:
http://www.apaindustries.com/old_site/wood.htm

They also have wood for other models.
Hope this helps.

Dan,

Have you tried some of the mercedes auto dismantlers? They might have what you are looking for though I have no idea what the condition would be. I'm sure you have checked Ebay, but I dont necessarily trust Things like that on E-bay.

You might want to check with steve at http://www.europarts-sd.com/

he might be able to assist you in finding the center console.

If you want I can try to find out the place my Father had the wood in his Rolls Royce Redone which came out looking better than new, but it might be more costly than replacing the piece.

You could also look into putting a carbon fibre laminate on the wood but I would rather go with carbon fibre.

Perhaps a really good custom interior shop will know, or maybe there is a junkyard you can go to that has mercedes which might have the console piece.

Otherwise I believe I read that some people have refinished theirs but I'm not sure about the results they had.

I wish I could be of more help.

Alon
