Hi Folks, I am in the process of doing my interior. Some of the wooden panels I bought have some scratches which I want to remove and get them shiny as the NOS parts I was lucky to get.
Has anyone done that before and can share some experiences and recommend methods or products?
it is the more "plastic" wood, not like the Classic or H&H real wood.
I thought of polishing with some stuff for acrylic surface. Maybe some clear coating afterwards?
As well the transparent gear lever surround is scratched and all the used ones don't look better ;-) Any tips for that, too?
Would be great.
Thanks
happy rangerovering!

I have replaced the small trim to the right of the steering wheel, the previous owner having drilled it for a mobile mount, and I am pretty sure it was real veneer ply under the gloss.
Simplest job would be to polish the existing surface with T-cut or similar, many of the scratches might disappear.
More work would be to rub down each piece and multiple coats of gloss varnish. Kind of depends on your scratches, also the varnish will have aged and total refinishing might give you a lighter colour?

THX, I might get another piece for experimenting a bit.
Getting lighter is no option, as I did a long search to get the parts in matching tone / color and wood grain 😉
I personally don’t like mismatched wooden interiors… then I would rather keep it grey / black.
