Classic Car Interiors Lacquer, Woodwork Restoration & Repair

HQ Lacquer specialises in the renovation of prestige marques’ woodwork to the highest possible standard for the classic car market. We can make your dashboard, door cappings, picnic tables, consoles and vanity mirrors look like the day they left the showroom forecourt.  For newer cars, our service ranges from the removal of scratches and scuffs from lacquered wood trim to a complete colour change, e.g. from walnut to piano black.

Back in 1986 when HQ Lacquer first came on the scene, one of the first markets we targeted was that of specialist automotive interiors. John Hennessey had learned his trade at Hooper Coachbuilders and then worked at Rolls Royce (Mulliner ParkWard) in NW London.  With his skill and contacts, HQ Lacquer soon was restoring most of the Rolls Royce and Bentley woodwork in London.

Top of the range

HQ Lacquer was also asked to apply our polyester finish to the woodwork of all the prototype Bentley Continental GTs. When the Rolls Royce Phantom was introduced, we were involved with the finishing of the early Phantoms’ woodwork, whilst the main contractor ramped up their production.

Just a quick message to say thank you very much for the superb work carried out on my Range Rover Classic’s woodwork.

Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job done on our dining room chairs. We just loved them truly a professional job. We are so grateful to have found your company and will certainly highly recommend you to friends and family.

Marc & Maria Legros

We have received extremely positive feedback regarding the piano black Komri cabinets you did for one of our customers. “Wonderful job HQ Lacquer have made from the smooth chamfered edges to the lovely satin black metal work of the bases and the ultra-gloss finish of the casework”. Brilliant result.


Many thanks for the Bottle Green cabinet , we fitted it on Friday and it looks fantastic in situ . The client was virtually speechless !

Dave – Penrose Island Furniture

drums received….. consider our minds blown, i have done a lot of gloss finishes over the years & see even more gloss drums worldwide, but nothing i have done comes close to yours, in fact we think its as good as we have seen on any other drums in production today, certainly on a level if not better than the german Sonor Sq2 series which as about as top end as it gets. I’m over the moon with them, i can’t wait to show them Moffat the show

Gareth – HighWood Drum
