Woodgrain vinyl

Hi Sonny here. Has anyone found an inexpensive place to purchase new vinyl for one of these land yachts. I am blowing a coat of paint on my 77 Cougar Villager and I need to replace the wood grain also, all 40 feet of it. 900 bucks seems awful expensive. If I was really good I could paint it on a whole lot cheaper but thats way over my head.

Neat links! I am wondering if anyone has ever put woodgrain on a wagon that did not have the option.... I know that woodgrain was optional on the 1971-76 Pontiac, Oldsmobile and Buick wagons. I am wondering how hard of a task it would be to add this to a wagon that originally did not have it. I am guessing it would be the surrounding trim that would be the most difficult? Drilling holes for the clips, etc? My moms cousin is a body repair specialist. I wonder if he would be able to do it if I indeed buy a wagon lacking the option. ?? Thanks for any advice!

Vinyl trim

The vinyl is very pricey $1000.00 to do my 77 Cougar Villager wagon and thats just the vinyl. The replacement stuff is not a real close match to whats there now. The trim would be a pain in the butt to find at least it is for mine. I have only managed to round up 4 pieces of NOS stuff so far. Mounting the trim would be no big deal if you can get the right clips along with the molding.

I have a 1992 Caprice Woody Wagon that didn't come from the factory as a woody. It was converted by Trim-Line for Diver Chevrolet in Wilmington, Delaware. It's done very nicely and it has thick tan pinstripes surrounding the wood paneling. I have seen one other one on eBay from the same dealer and it was done the same way.

I make woodgrain in Long Beach, CA. My woodgrain is high quality but is a little less than 900. A set usually runs between 600 to 750.
