What colour are your panels ...
The wood panels in my car are burl walnut. I did a project (that is posted here), I purchased the 3 dash panels from a breaker and redid them in piano black. That way I maintained the original parts, but now have an interchangeable black set for those three panels. I also have an all saddle interior, but like the tutone so I purchased black center arm rests, black gearshift, black floor mats, black 3 spoke steering wheel and air bag. I am still at it looking to purchase front door arm rests....nice, fun ongoing project.

This may sound crazy but Im tired of looking at piano black and Im changing all the panels to black carbon fibre. I've done the centre ones but not the heating vents in the rear as Ive got to remove the centre arm rests, the rest of the panels are still piano black. If you want we could do a swop as it don't matter to me what colour yours are as I'll be covering them. A bit of packing & postage will be cheaper than buying all the panels ... they in perfect condition What do you think ...

Thanks for the offer Rico. Actually, I was considering a carbon fiber wrap. Yes, I think postage would kill us. I am able to usually pick up panels from a breaker that are reasonably priced. I still might do the CF wrap if I get tired of the black, but love it so far. Right now, my focus is finding the front door armrests in black that are in good shape. Here (at the door panel) most used accident cars have panel hardware and leather that has taken a beating, but I'm persistent.

Here is a pic of the "work in progress. I have been shopping for the door armrests that hold the window switches. If I can get those in black then I'll move to some other parts in the back seat.

Beautiful! On your red color, that CF pops! I have a source for the wheel but it's a US supplier and the wheel and airbag are brand new...so a little costly.

Here you go....

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bentley-Con...wAAOSwEzxYVHIN

He has them in leather w/black wood as well....as I recall, but haven't dealt with him in a few months now. Good reliable seller. That Bentley mag sounds good wish we had one...

A black wheel would be good unless with luck he has one the same colour as my interior.
The Bentley magazine is from Crewe head office but anyone in the world can apply, they will send one out to you from the US base companies ... as soon as Ive done here I'll send you the form to apply ...
Its a great read ...



You can use the address to send them a letter or just use the form & they will redirect it to a Bentley dealer near you, I've had these mags for some years now, the one I have today is the 100th extraordinary years, No: 68 ...

Agreed. My 14 FS is Mulliner-equipped and it's gorgeous.

beautiful! Looks like a burnished/brushed aluminum. Can you get that simulated in a wrap?
