The price depends on many factors, such as;

  • How many items there are and how big are they?
  • What finish is there already?
  • Are there any changes to be made, such as size of radio housing?
  • Does the veneer need replacing?
  • Is the actual wood damaged?
  • Is the groundwork de-laminating?
  • What finish would you like?

I ask my clients to email (or post) me detailed photos of all the items to be restored. If this can be done then I am able to give a ballpark figure.

It is impossible to correctly quote for restoration work without seeing it in person. There are so many elements to pricing, that it would be irresponsible of me not to inspect your wooden trim before giving a precise quote.

If you would like me to provide you with a detailed quote please send all items to me. Providing the quotation is free of charge. I only charge for the return of the items should you decide not to proceed.

As with the pricing for the Antiques that I restore you may find someone who is willing to do it cheaper for you, but as with many things in life 'you get what you pay for'. The service that I am offering is one of craftsmanship, using traditional restoration methods to breathe life into the interior woodwork of you classic car.

Clients come to me because of my skill, experience and personal service. No items leave the workshop until I am 100% satisfied with them and no items have ever been returned.


Before commencing any work on your items I ask for a deposit of 50% of the price of the restoration work. I then ask for the remainder on completion of the work.

For those of you that I provide a postal service, I will email you detailed photos on completion as proof of the quality of my work. For those of you that I am seeing in person then payment by Cheque or cash on delivery will be necessary.For those of you who wish payments by PayPal may be made.

Cheques should be made to S. Lorkin and posted to Le Ménage, 50410, Montbray, France
