[xk] Dash question

Bob,

Although I haven’t actaully bought anything from them yet, I have seen
several examples of Classic Veneers work at shows in the UK. I was impressed
and will be using them for my 140 dhc woodwork and also for some door frame
parts.

Their prices frightened me a bit. They quoted 400 to 600 pounds for a full
rework/new outright purchase but their dash panels did look really well
finished. Of course, you don’t know how well they fit until you
try…

Ayone had work done by " Classic Veneers " ? I would like to have a
woodgrain
dash made for my XK-120 roadster. They are kinda long distance from me (
Virginia, USA ) and would like some feedback before I order. Thanks Bob
Jones
( I know it didn’t come with one )

hi bob… xk120 roadsters are covered in leatherette, i have no
knowledge of any roadsters with wood. what else can i help with???
(the dash board that is, i believe it is called the facia… regards,
bernie

just another reply to you in the fac that you already know tat the 120
rdstr didn’t come with wood facia. i dont think that in your best
interest that a wood replacement, as beautiful as it may appear, would
be acceptable in a serious concours. tink it over before you go for it,
but if that what you want, go for it, i have no suggestions as to who
could make one for you or hav you tried bassetts jaguar in R.I.
regards bernie

If you really want a nice wooden dash, just use one from a FHC. They fit with
no problem.

I had some parts, that were missing, made by Classic Veneers. They did a
very fine job. Try them.

yup -had the wood for my 120 DHC done by them. Superb job- make sure you
supply your original dash so they know where to put the holes for the
instrument back panel. Fabo job.
