Yes, they have all different kinds. I haven't seen the others in person but I have used different vinyl from them in the past with good experience. I buy 2 foot sheets on ebay.

Here is a link to one of their auctions that shows the other styles they have. This was Walnut. I used 2 2' rolls for the jeep; I have left overs but it is all odd shapes and sizes from cutting; I would recommend NOT trying to go with 1 roll.

24" Cherry Wood Grain Vinyl Film Roll Dash Trim Sheet | eBay

It really did come out looking great. I used some in my Saab (now gone) and it looked like REAL wood (I used it on curved handles that were a shape you'd expect real wood to be) and it doesn't have that glossy, tacked on appearance of stick on kits.

No affiliation with them; I just like using the stuff. Lots of diff colors and finishes, very forgiving to work with.

Gonna change passanger side brake line tomarrow and will be ready to bleed and Im done. I got lucky as hell today as a buddy of mine has a set of half worn 285 75 R16 pro comps for 40 bucks! I believe I'll take em only one of them are worn bad. I've been wanting a set of moto metal 16x9s for a while but couldnt afford wheels and tires all at once.

Replaced the evaporator core after I put a screw through it installing the CB. LOL... A/C is nice and cold again, and with 106 degree heat index and wildfires all over, I stuck the hardtop and full doors back on so I can breath.

After driving about a mile up the mountian, maybe two, it bogged put in 3 rd n 4th gear! On two lane hwy! Finally stalled refused to start! Rolled it back to small turn out! Just to find out fuel pump went out! Soooo yeah! Maybe a girl n can fix almost anything myself, but reduse to play with fuel issues! Mechanic is a complete ass!

I ran the battery dead and then while attempting to jump it the ever loving, god forsaken, never stop blowing wind in Texas flipped my hood onto the windshield frame and cracked my windshield.

All in all a good day....Im going back to bed.

Removed the hardtop the other day (sucks doing it with only one person...) replaced the passenger headlight, added a 12v outlet and that's about it.

My Jeep

It is an islaner and the person that had it last spayed painted it side and cover the rust spots with fake sun patterns so now taking the fake sun patterns off and I am going to do it the right way sand down the rust spots and have it custom painter by a pro but to save money I plan to prime the body gonna be a lot of sanding but one panel at a time.

no Duplicolor makes a spray can of truck bed liner and its only $10.00 at any parts store. I like it because its rubber based and really protects the tub. Im going to put about 3 or 4 more layers on this weekend after I do the 3" body lift and new shocks.

You'll probably want to get rid of the rust before you paint over it with anything

Rust

I have a few rust stop I am going to try to fix myself and you just wire brush it and then sand it down a little then prime it?
How does that POR work just spread it on?
I have one that I know of that has a hole about the size of my fist sheet metal or Bondo and how you do fiberglass to stick?
ameture night
