[Healeys] Refinishing dashboard wood

In the early 90's I acquired a BJ8 that had been abandoned for 8 yrs. that had been sitting outside with a hole in the convertible top.  Someone had stolen the glove box side, presumably for the lock, so that piece wasn't there.  The gauge side was there but badly cracked like yours so I removed the finish back to the plywood.  I purchased some marine plywood and made a new glove box side and bought some bookmatched burl walnut veneers to cover both pieces.  I finished the new veneers with maybe a dozen or more coats of marine varnish, sanded between coats and finished with carnauba wax.  The result was spectacular.  Good luck.

Hi all,My dashboard wood’s clear coat is cracked all over. I’m wondering what type of finish this is and what i should use to recoat it after I’ve sanded it all off. Also, what stain can I use on the wood since I’m likely to have to do some restaining? My car is a 67 BJ8. Thanks in advance for the advice.BruceSent from my iPad_______________________________________________Support Team.Net http://www.team.net/donate.htmlSuggested annual donation  $12.75Archive: http://www.team.net/pipermail/healeys http://autox.team.net/archiveHealeys@autox.team.nethttp://autox.team.net/mailman/listinfo/healeysUnsubscribe/Manage: http://autox.team.net/mailman/options/healeys/insidedim@aol.com
