I had to chip mine off carefully piece by piece. Very tedious, but no stripper I could find would touch the original coating. It was difficult to sand, too, without damaging the veneer, so I gave that up. I re-stained the wood with Minwax stain and re-finished with Envirotex Lite. I found it to produce a beautiful finish and I was very happy with the result. After 20 years, though, I see one area about the size of a nickel that is delaminating in a disc around the choke knob. Nothing lasts forever.....

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.
