    Post Custom Woodgrain pieces

    Sup everyone! I just wanted to post a message to see if anyone knows of a company that can manufacture a custom woodgrain piece to match my current woodgrain. The piece needs to be the same material the Jeep ones are made from (some sort of plastic with the finish over it, i think). I also saw a link to a company that makes sheets thatn you can mold yourself with heat. Has anyone ever used these? And is anyone familiar with how good they look or how to mold them?

    I've used 2 different types of fake wood, the first is call fablon (can't find them on the net) really cheap, and looks it. I got it from a DIY store. The second is a German product, I can remember the make but I can look it up for you. This stuff is expensive (20 GBP for 2ft x 2ft) but you can heat it up and mold it in to shape, & it look's the part!, I can provide pics. I found this stuff in a specialise car shop, the kind rude-boyz go to.

    Note the German stuff is a bit tricky to use, you might need several attempts to get it right.
