Looking for material to change my interior wood grain to another style

I am looking for some material to recover some pieces of my interior, which are already a faux wood grain, to another style.

Presently, I have a dark, oak like look on the door panels, and I desire to go with a lighter, maple look.

Any retailers selling a product like this? It needs to go around some tight surfaces, too.

Avery makes a great product.

I just used a Mahogony of theirs to do a "woody". A hair drier will work to soften up the material enough to stretch it a bit around bends.

Practice on some similar parts to get the feel for just how much it will stretch. Work slow and have patience. If it takes a bit longer than you think it should then your doing somthing right.

I have tried out 'doller general' shelving film and found it stretches good also. Though the Avery products seem to have a far better glue.

I'll post a few picks this week end.

At any sign shop that does vinyl signs.

Averygraphics.com
Maybe another is FDCfilms.com, but I don't think they do wood grain.

Avery options:
Cheyenne Teak
Bravo Burl


An EASIER way, is to research faux finishes at Home Depot and do it in paint. Saw it Garlits Museum for an old Ford Dash. Looked pretty realistic.

What do they mean by punched or unpunched? Which type is the right type to get for dash panels (like in a 66 with mostly flat panels)?

Thanks!

Dan

That wouldnt matter for you...

Punched means the edges of the rolls have a punched edge. These holes allow the film to be fed through a plotting cutter. Remember the old dot-matrix printer paper that fed through printers in one long sheet and you tore it off at the perforations? Its used just like that to feed it into the plotters.
