Custom Wood Grain - First Samples Inside! While searching around I came across this company in Austria that will basically paint a wood grain onto any piece. It actually looks really good, check it out: http://www.modicoat.com/id38.htm . I was reading over the method and they basically spray it with a base coat and then apply some kind of gel to give it the wood grain effect. Does anyone know anything about this gel and where I could get it? I think this will be a lot nicer than buying the vinyl wood grain kit for my car and probably cheaper too if I can find the gel and do it myself. It will also allow me to do custom parts that aren't included in the vinyl kits. Any information on this process would be fantastic.
