[Saloon-lovers] MkVII wood

Hello.

I have a simple question to the MkVII owners out there in the web
world. I have started to restore the wood on my car which was also
“restored” by a previous owner. Unfortunately he has cut through the
veneer in quite a few places, so a fair bit of renewal is necessary.
On the wood above the doors I can see no traces at all of veneer.
This appears strange to me and I am wondering if this is correct or
if the previous owner has actually sanded it all away. Can anyone
help me with info about what is correct for a MkVII?

Hi Per-Age Krogstad & all – Per-Age, the Cappings for the LH and RH
Cantrails (the narrow pieces above the doors and behind the rear door NDVs)
WERE burled in walnut, like most of the rest of the wood, from the first Mk
VII through the last Mk IX. Because of their narrowness, these were NOT
book-matched to individual cars (like the larger burled walnut pieces). If
you need to replace any of them, they’re the SAME through the entire
production run (VII/VIIM/VIII/IX). My Mk IX Spare Parts Catalogue, Body
Fittings, p/303, calls them out:
BD.12134, Capping for L.H. Cantrail
BD.12135, Capping for R.H. Cantrail
BD.12136, Capping for L. H. Rear Quarter
BD.12137, Capping for R.H. Rear Quarter
Or – take any burl-damaged ones to a GOOD wood restorer/refinisher – if
enough burl is left to identify the pattern, this person can re-veneer
them. I hope this helps – take care – Larry Martz*****

I may have mis-read Per-Age’s question, but I’m wondering if, when he says
“the wood above the doors”, he means at the top of the door, below the
window (rather than the cantrail over the window). If so, I think he’s
right, the wood sill at the top of the door/bottom of the window is not
veneered, right?

It’s usually a single piece of red mahogany. This is the “cap” that runs at
the base of the window and on top of the walnut and boxwood side panel which
rests at the top inside of the door.

Hi Mark Moburg, Per-Age Krogstad & all – Mark, you’re exactly right – the
narrow strips on top of the large burled walnut pieces below the windows
(and NOT above the doors, but 13 - 14" below the chrome top-of-door frames)
are NOT veneered (unlike the cantrails above the windows and above the
chrome frames, fitted at the edges of the headliner, which ARE veneered).
To my best knowledge, Per-Age was referring to the cantrails (above the
windows) rather than the narrow pieces below the windows. I hope this
helps – Larry Martz*****
