Please keep in mind that you can find this stuff all over the web for a lot cheaper. But some of the designs are either not available or are too expensive.

Thanks, Carl. When you try it, let me know how you like it. I like mine matte finish, and this stuff is too shiny.

Harry, you found the motherload, but the prices are not cheap. I guess in groups of 6 or more, then it is a bit cheaper.

There's got to be a way of getting a hold of full sheets instead of these finger nail shapes.

Cool Harry! Noting that one of the ads shows a Walmart sticker of $8.50 on a box, and they're offered on eBay for about $2 each in the lots, I'd say they weren't a big sales success, and maybe hit closeout?

Tom, that's what I am hoping for. As a matter of fact, on AMAZON some of the checker patterns are going to ridiculous money because I think most of this stuff is going to disappear soon. A fast-dying fad, which will be good for us.

Makes sense to also look on the shelves at the Dollar Stores.

And check the clearance aisle at Walmart! I've found some amazing things there.

I like the look of some of them; the zebra skin in particular looks pretty close to scale, and one of the floral designs might work for a Barracuda ModTop! :lol: Some of the plaids might be good for '50s accessory seat covers as well.

I think I would try it if I could get it in sheets instead of these small pieces.

I used some of those on a custom Dodge Copperhead...snakeskin

They didn't stick too well, dullcoat would have looked better

They are also kind of brittle, and they crack if not too careful

Hey Dr Cranky, after viewing your vid on youtube, i found some of those strips but they are a color changing style. Found them in a dollar store for 1 buck. I have not tried them yet, but after I do, will give you some feedback. Also bringing up the nail sections of the stores, I also found nail jewels, and I used some for blue dot tail lights on a car.
