    It appears that the wood is significantly faded, in addition to the cracking. Mandatory to refinish.

    If I were you, I'd get it refinished and then sell it as a perfect unit for big bucks.

    I know of a few refinishing places Madera being the most expensive and best quality. Any recommendations that dont break the bank and look good ?

    Yep, Madera is the place to go. I'd get some economies of scale going, and do a full set of wood. Then you can charge what you want and probably make more money on it. Talk to them to see what they would charge for the single piece.

    IMHO, where possible it's always better to offer "turnkey" solutions rather than making the buyer do the work, you'll sell much faster and get what you want for a perfect (and likely NLA from MB) part. More work for you up front, but more $$$ in the end.

    The MB list price for the WOOD ONLY is $610, available for around $450 from discounters. The list price for the housing is $730, discounted to around $520-550 depending on the color. IF they are even still available.

    Saying you spend $250 on restoration up front, and clean up the part overall, you should be able to get an easy $500 for it to someone who really needs one. I'm sure you got it for far less than your $200 asking price, so even if you paid $100 for it, with the guesstimated $250 wood refinishing, you're making a pretty decent profit at $500. Plus, you will sell it much quicker as a buyer won't have to bother doing anything (will pay extra for a turnkey part).

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    Check Igor Smirnov in San Diego. He refinished myC126 wood. http://restoredinusa.com/mercedes-re...-trim-gallery/

    And my affiliation is a happy customer. I will tell you that roll top boxes take a lot of labor as each slat needs to be refinished and there is a lot of waste on the sheets of walnut.
