Wood Restoration


O.E.M. Replacement Dashboard and Door Panels

No matter the condition of your wood, we can help you.

Below is some general criteria about Refinishing and Reveneering.

If the wood in your BMW 2800 / 3.0 is showing its age, you have some options.

The First Option would be to have us Restore your original parts.
If the base wood and the wood veneer on the face of the parts is in good enough condition, we can Refinish them for you.   In this picture, just the clear finish is having trouble and the underlying veneer is still intact and in good enough condition for us to Refinish them. 
The clear on this 3.0 Door panel is completely "spyder webbed" with small cracks, and the same thing was true with all the rest of the woodwork.  But the face veneer was still intact on all the parts and was in good enough condition for us to Refinish them.
If you look closely at this Gauge panel from a 3.0, you will see that the the wood veneer on the face of the part has actually come off the part....exposing the layers of the plywood underneath. You can also see raised horizontal splits in the veneer that are where the veneer has cracked, and buckled outward which is a sure indication that the veneer is coming unglued.

In this case, the base wood “substrate” is in good condition, but the wood veneer on the face of the part is having trouble.  In cases like this, we can reveneer and refinish your parts for you.

(You could even have us change the veneer from the original straight grained a beautiful Burled Walnut.) Check out the completed parts further down the page.

In some cases our customers have asked us to fill the speaker hole, which we can do when reveneering or refinishing your parts. Or, if you are ordering a new set, you could ask us to leave out the speaker hole if you do not want it.

Lastly, yet probably the most important option available to you is the Replacement option. We at Madera Concepts offer replacement woodwork for the 2800 / 3.0.   Many times, either some or all of the woodwork in these cars are in really bad condition. So bad, that repair, refinishing or reveneering are not good options.

Typically the parts have gotten wet again and again and have literally started to rot and fall apart. But not to worry, we can help you. We produce replacement woodwork for your 2800 / 3.0 and not just some, but all the parts. We can make you replacement parts and veneer them in the stock straight grained wood. (you may have us manufacture the odd part and we will choose a veneer and stain color to “compliment” a sample part of your existing woodwork, however we always recommend that you have us do all the parts at one time, ......guarantying the best possible wood grain pattern and color match. Or we can make you one of our new O.E.M. Replacement sets using a gorgeous Burled Walnut as the face veneer. (Must be purchased as a full set.)
If you look closely, you can see that the clear, the veneer and many layers of the plywood substrate on these parts has rotted completely off.

Interior Trim parts we manufacture for the BMW 2800 & 3.0 

(the Satin finish - pictured - is an option.  Gloss finish is standard)
Here are pictures of completed parts: In this case, our customer chose some very special figured walnut and a satin finish.
Above is a closeup of the Optional Replacement Speaker Grille we manufacture.


What’s more, we manufacture a new replacement “lower deck tray panel”!!!!  This the panel that is covered in vinyl on the passenger side and is often pretty rotted away. Not only do we manufacture that panel, but we manufacture replacement “Accent Strips” (those little divider strips that are mounted in the slots in the vinyl side). 

AND, we manufacture replacement Deck panel mounts, those pesky “T” shaped blocks of wood with a nut in them, that always seem to break to bits because the mounting bolt has rusted itself into the nut.

No offense intended, but those models came with a rather plain, straight grained walnut, and there is a very high demand from 2800 & 3.0 owners, to have their wood veneer changed to a very beautiful Burled Walnut  - see Popular Wood Choices at the bottom of this page.
