Deluxe Door Woodgrain Insert
#1
Any advice on replacing the wood grain section?

Has anyone had any experience with simply replacing the wood grain insert with contact paper?
I don't think the contact paper I just bought off ebay would stay sticked.

The old destroyed wood grain I peeled off my inserts had a thick clear top layer to its construction.
The clear top layer pulled off like a sheet of plastic and left the wood grain on the insert! Totally different from ordinary contact paper.

Anybody know what type of a wood grain material is on the $265 ish wood grain insert panels available on the aftermarket?

Thanks

I ended up using contact paper from BerlinWalper.com. It looks lighter than the original but has held up great since installing in 2011. It was stock number

3460029-DCF    1      DC-FIX:  Golden Walnut                 $8.99    

I also order a dark walnut but it appeared to be too dark. The first 3 pictures are the Golden Walnut. The last picture is the original insert

Thanks for the reply.  They look great. That's just what I want to do.  Unfortunately, Berlinwallpaper has closed so I can't check out their products.
Nice to hear that they will stay stuck with a good product.

Now I just have to find...

Thank You! Boy you even found it for me...Very nice of you. Much better product than what I have here now.
It's even a name brand searchable on Youtube.

Thanks again!

Your welcome. I removed how frustrated I was looking for something that was reasonably close to the original one. I looked in many hardware stores and department stores and couldn't find anything.

Same thing I used several years ago.  d-c-fix, works great.
Mine is labeled "made in Germany".

Woodgrain is for Country Squire station wagons.  I went with 3M DiNoc black carbon fiber. Wink

Eric, I'm one of the old school wood grain fans. But every time I see your door panels with carbon fiber I find myself likin' them more each time. Don't remember if the horse on the driver door is facing forward or not, but if so are those fender emblems from a new model Mustang?  I have a storage container I keep all my Ford emblems in and was going to see if I had anything similar to the ones you used, but who knows were in the %(#@?!@  I put it! Isn't getting old(er) great?!   Big Grin

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!
