I don't have a darn clue where to get vinyl, but if u can't find the color you want, you can always go to autozone and pick up a can of vinyl spray paint. May not be high quality but it gets you where u want. Only place that i would even look at for vinyl would be Wal-Mart... I need white vinyl and a second color that i am looking into for my interior.

But...what suckz about getting and using the vinyl from liek wal-mart and rag shop iz that itz like imitation vinyl. I tried using white vinyl fromw al-mart 2 do my headliner, and it juss didn't work..came out shitty and couldn't smoth it out, it wouldn't stretch rite.

My brother tried 2 help me do it(he worked 4 an upholstery place 4 a lil while) n he even said itz cheap vinyl.

But If u do wind ^ doing the partz on ur doorz, take off the fabric that on it...then juss put the vinyl over the fiberboard stuff, or else it wont fit rite when u go 2 put it back on the door(have 2 redo mine)...

interesting, see i thought all vinyl was a leather imitation, so that would mean that your vinyl is a wannabe a wannabe leather?

OK...did u not read what else i wrote, i said my brother worked in an upholstery place, n he even said the kind from wal-mart iz cheap, meaning upholstery placez prob get the better shit...cuz when i tried doin my headliner, the vinyl i had wouldn't flatten out, it wuz juss makin linez and looked shitty, then my brother tried doin it the way ur supposed 2 n it still didn't work...so

Yah sure. Ill give it a try, how much do you think il need for the interior door panel cover? Liek 2-3 yards?
Not even close, a yard is plenty. You'll have enough to do all four of the pieces from the interior and still have enough to screw up once or twice. If your serious I'll double check on those prices for ya.
