I stripped all the wood out of my AMG then polished them with a 3" GG. Same steps as the car paint. The clear is soft. When I finished I applied 22ple coating to the clear. I also have applied several other brands of coatings. The coatings will keep the gloss and minimize the scratch level. Wont eliminate the scratches, however will help against a microfiber cloth being rubbed to hard on the clear and micro-scratches occurring. Easy to take the center console apart and then polish outside of the vehicle. DASH and doors you can either 3" painter tape and polish directly on the car or hand polish as best as possible. Either way, coatings are wonderful for interior clear coated wood trim.
