    Post woodgrain dash?

    Does anyone know what they use to cover plastics with woodgrain materials? See my pictures page for an example of what I'm looking for:

    Thanks for any leads...!

    Oops, I forgot to put the link to my cars setup and pictures. Here it is.

    I actually had my plastic keyboard finished with this wood material, and I'm wondering how they do it. Does anyone work at a car audio shop that does this for dashboard plastic peices? Thanks for any leads...!

    “Authentic-looking walnut grain imprinted on heavyweight vinyl….”
    I have serious doubts that these people would use something like WOOD GRAIN CUSTOMIZING KIT. Look at this professional job they have done. This whole thing just flows around edges like a water. I have the exact keyboard and there is no way I would achieve the same results with this “vinyl kit.” I think they use specially formulated OEM type epoxy. However, I might be wrong.

    Thumbs up

    I bought my woodgrain from these guys in Florida. Awesome stuff. Here is link directly to the page with the ABS Laminates.
    http://www.selectproducts.com/product/abslaminates.html

    The main site is: http://www.selectproducts.com/

    It is relatively inexpensive and looks very professional. I matched the woodgrain in my 2000 Accord exactly.

    I got ABS/ Wyoming Burl (Dark) 12"x24" for $21.00 US.

    Hope this helps.

    This is oh so close to what I need. I have an Outback Limited w/ the Burlwood trim and need the laminate. I need something that can stretch around corners and contours. Anyone find it without being attached to ABS? Something like the stuff for model airplanes? (monokote, heat stretching stuff)

    I can provide this finish to any ABS material. It's an expensive process, but I can provide it to anyone that's interested.
