The finish is a clear coated wood with an epoxy backing. If you sand it, do it by hand and be gentle. You could try a gentle paint stripper, but the wood can become very brittle and crack.
Stripping the original clear coat is tedious and ugly, but once you have restained it and re clear coated it, it is beautiful again.
Search the archives for wood refinishing.
Hey Jonathan how did you get your panels off and is there just a clear coat or is it a plastic covering on the panels?
