Jaguar XK120 fhc,
XK120 dhc, XK140 fhc, XK140 dhc, XK 150 fhc/dhc: The
wood sets you see below received a complete strip, repair and re-veneer.
With wood of this age,I highly recommend retaining
as many of the original parts as possible. A certain amount of hand
fitting was involved from car to car, and it is frustrating to find
that a newly made set will not necessarily fit properly without
modification. That being said, I can and do supply totally new wood
sets as well.
