Cracked wood on console
Got an idea. Both my '87 W126s have cracked finishes on the shift lever / window switch plate, the vertical wood on the console, and a couple other places. While spending several hundred dollars to get refurbished pieces would be the best, how well would wrap / decal material stand up to the heat in the car in the summertime? I could remove the console wood, sand it smooth, and have it wrapped.
The material used as a wrap on the exterior of a car should be right for this use and it can likely be obtained in any color wanted, probably even in a wood grain look.
Also, how about having it put on my cracked dash? Fill in the cracks with a plastic material, wipe it down with acetone or maybe xylene, have a wrap applied.
