Fiber glass texture?

I will be glueing the dryer sheet directly to the body.  The panel was just a test piece.

My two cents, late to the party..... I use craft acrylic paint, with tile grout mixed in, to simulate rubber and vinyl.  For getting the strands, I would try a stiffer brush, when the paint is about half set up.  That way you will conform to the body shape, instead of sticking on panels with seams showing.

That looks really good Kurt!  What does the grout do?  Thicken it up?

Yes, since the paint is water-based, the cement hardens up and peaks up with the brush stippling, and when dry it's really hard.   I have a 1,000 year supply of tile grout, you could use any cement.  Or I could sell you a dime bag. 😉

It’s cool, I think I know a guy who sells dime bags! 🤪

The results look great anyway - thanks for sharing 👍🏻
