I recently came across a Nos woodgrain radio bezel to replace a black broken one. Has anyone matched this to a vinyl wrap design? Closest thing I've found is bubinga 3m di-noc vinyl. I was hoping to wrap some switch panels to match it, like on a lariat interior.

Can you even wrap textured plastic or is it going to be funky/loose/floating? I suppose you could get the panel really cold to stiffen it then try sanding it smooth.

I've no idea about closer matches, haven't seen anyone do this.

Not sure, I may do the inserts in the door. Could sand them, gotta seen if the vinyl I ordered is anywhere close first.
