    Awesome restoration! As a woodgrain diner freak, I wanted to know where you sourced your replacement product: it looks high quality and I can tell it is the original pattern of what was on the wagon from the factory?

    Hi 90 merc,

    Thanks for the email. I'm sorry for the delayed response... I sweated over this part of the restoration, not sure what the solution would be to replace the siding--until I found a 90-inch long original piece of dinoc on Ebay. I had it digitally photographed, then had a graphics shop clean up the imperfections and tweak the color to get the best match possible before printing it on 3M control tac.

    ...Now, if I can only find original dinoc for a '96 Roadmaster wagon.
