W108 dashboard replacement/renewal

761 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  rvacker
Hi All,

I have a W108 chassis 280SE Mercedes in right-hand drive. Someone attempted to steal it with a hammer and a screwdriver and ruined the timber veneer dash. It needs to be replaced.

What are the best options for replacement? Is there new old stock available?

Some internet searches have found some replacement options but they all seem to be in polished walnut etc, where my model did not have that option and instead has a more humble timber option.

I would like to go like-for-like.

Any help and feedback on any of the options out there is very much appreciated.

The W108 280 SEL 4.5 (U.S. only) has wood around the back windows, which you don’t need. So avoid replacement wood for that specific model.

I had the wood on my ‘72 W108 280 SEL 4.5 replaced with zebra wood; it’s really sharp.
It just occurred to me that in the U.S. your homeowner's insurance extends to anything in the interior of the vehicle being stolen. If your auto insurance does not cover the damage, your homeowner's might. Not sure if it will cover damage from an attempted theft.
