Woodwork restoration for a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud

By Simon Lorkin of Classic Dashboards

Here are a few photos of the restoration of all the woodwork from a Rolls Royce Silver Clod for a classic car restoration garage based in Lyuxembourg. The garage dismantled all the pieces and sent them to my via courier.

I reveneered the roudnded pieces and the glove box (first and second photos) using veneer that was a similar as possible to the original. I then stained to match the colour and gave it all a new finish. I used my water based laquer that is stable like other modern laquers but gives a much better finish, I believe, that shows off the beauty of the woodwork and not a thick, plastic look that modern cars have.

Please look below to see the pieces before the my restoration work.
