Restored wooden parts replaced on Zebrano veneer walnut root and covered with polyester varnish. Did everything himself


Excellent work ! Want to do mine ? On second thoughts - it will take too long to remove it all.

Dima, this is absolutely what I am looking for. I am in process of full restoration of my -79 6.9. All wooden taken out and will have  a furniture maker to assess possibility of restore the walnut panels. But, you have done it (you are probably furniture maker yourself ;).

So, appreciate if you can send me where you bought or where I can get the walnut vaneer plates? Or perhaps I can send it to you my Russian neighbor. Obviusly the quality seems impressive  :)


In my in Norway, should have no problems with the purchase of veneer)) I personally bought through an intermediary in Moscow, $ 180 for 2 sqm. Is Europe not intelligent masters of automotive restoration pieces of wood, rudders panel?


Those came out perfect. Excellent work.
