Woodwork & Dashboard Restoration – Rolls Royce Silver Cloud
Dashboard and wooden interior trim pieces for a beautiful classic car, restored by British craftsman Simon
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 Luxembourg. The garage dismantled all the pieces and sent them to my via courier.
I reveneered the rounded 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.
I’ve been restoring classic car wooden interiors using technics learnt from my fine antique furniture restoration, adapting my methods where necessary.
