Wall Paneling

Postby Mherrick » Fri Mar 09, 2018 7:02 pm

anyone know a source for the interior and exterior paneling for a '66 express sedan?

some type of pressed board with white covering (paint?) it looks like.

owner wants to replace with same material....

thanks,

good advice.
I was heading in that direction, just thought I'd tap the brain trust.

66 was a good year, starting high school for me, but a long, long time ago...

thanks for the feedback.

FRP(Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) - Shower wall, at big box stores is a good replacement. Use your old panels as pattern .

ERP worked good for me. Your windows will leak & no harm . easy to clean.

FRP it is. Found some (Lowes) with similar texture to original.
my thanks for the advice,
