the prob is the rear 2 have lookd like that they have been stripped bak an stained, an the front 2 didnt get done, im just wondering if i sand them bak, should i just apply a polish or stain them and polish ?

an does anyone no what wood was used in these cars ?

thanks

Can be stained according to your taste I guess.

Yes the only F or L series to have real woodgrain on the door trims was the EF series 1 Fairmont Ghia (1994-95).
