  • Woodgrain replacement

    Anyone ever tried to use the woodgrain from say a PT Crusier? I have about 4 panels i need to replace and was thinking maybe i could buy one of those and cut to make it fit? Im starting next week and hoping to be done by summer with fixing some rust/headliner and woodgrain. Id order bjs kit but its the wrong color of woodgrain

    Has both "flavors" of GW woodgrain in what appear to be the original patterns.

          Just a note of caution; the materials they list that are the same as the Grand Wagoneer woodgrains, are listed as "Digital Reproductions". This means that they are reproduced on a digital printer and not by the original methods, and the colors may not be an exact match to the original. They may not have the same durability as the original either.

          Granted, even if you could find some original material, or if 3M still made the stuff, it probably wouldn't match your original woodgrain because of the effects of the weather after all these years. So just be aware if you're planning on only replacing part of your wood siding - you'll probably see a difference between the old and new.

          I'd buy one of their $1.00 samples before dropping the coin on the bigger pieces, just to be sure.

              we do allow our pics to be posted....you just have to click on the pic to enlarge it, then right click and save.

              For our woodgrain, we have a replacement sample coming soon that we will inspect. If it meets our requirements / standards, it'll get the seal of approval and be listed on the site. The original Marine Teak pattern is no longer produced by 3M, which is why we aren't currently listing it.

                ryan, what kind of persuading do/would 3m require to reproduce the original? - its not like there isnt a ready made market out there for the stuff....

                are you recreating both designs of the woodgrains used on wags too?

                  Sorry abou that, I found that out after I looked around your site a little more. Looks like it was an operator head space and timing problem.
