Unhappy Newbie from South Africa

Hi, I'm Alex and have an 84 500SEC, 85 560SEC and a 2003 500SL.
My 500SEC is a multiple concours winner but I have some issues which need attention and I'm needing some advice on how to tackle them. Firstly the hood lining is separating starting near the rear window. Secondly the wood veneer is parting on the dash around the ignition key and on the opposite side of the steering. This is very disappointing as this car has been baby'ed all its life, always garaged and never left in the sun more than absolutely unavoidable. This is a low mileage car only used on special occasions. The seats and carpeting are still as new so why is the glue on the hood lining / wood veneer giving up on me?? Any advice most welcome.
