Austin Healey BJ8 Dashboard Restoration

On Friday I finished restoring Don Manning’s 1967 Austin Healey BJ8 Dashboard.

This car is special because it has an all-original interior and has never been fully restored.

The video goes through the process in detail and I hope it provides some insights for future jobs.

The wood panels were refinished by Karen Trickett of Coventry Woodworks http://www.coventrywoodworks.ca/

    Richard – the new dashboard looks fantastic! This has been my favourite dashboard of any English car for years! Great job man!

    I’m considering how to approach restoration or replacement of my dash panels.
    I live in California, so it would be prohibitive to get my car to you for this work, but would it be possible to view your video on BJ8 dashboard restoration? Thank you.

    I would love to see the above video, but it is “private”. Are you able to send me another link so I can see it?
