    Great wood restoration.

    Just a note to say that if you are stupid enough to spend a lot of money with a top boat builder to transform your oem e34 interior wood it can be done to great effect…

    Here is a before and after…

    Oh man! That is lovely. Theres nothing better than a perfect condition wood interior in these cars. Well worth it I think.

    Looks fantastic! That's a clever idea to go to a boat builder for the woodwork. I agree that it's definitely worth it; when the wood trim is perfect with deep color and no cracking in the clear topcoat it really looks sharp and stands out in this day and age. I hate how faded and cracked the wood trim was on one of my E32s. All the wood trim pieces in my other E32 are flawless and I love it. Really makes the interior look mint.

    Any suggestions from the boat builder about wood treatment when detailing the interior?

    Love it. Nice to see some appreciate wood trim in these cars. It truly warms up the interior - like a Jag, Rolls or Merc.
