Due to age and sun exposure, the interior wood trim cracks and the finish gets a cloudy haze. Replacement if the trim would be the most common solution to the problem.

The finish on the shifter console cover cracked. I removed the part from the car, scraped off the epoxy, restained the wood and put about 10 coats of spray on polyurethane. Its not an exact match, but it looks better than before.
