    I've searched and I can't find a source, I'm looking for crazy metallic stuff not woodgrain.

    Thanks.

    I think di-noc is a 3M copywright isnt it? If you can find a decent body shop, auto tinting, or "euro speed" type shop I would think they can get it for you.
    Mylar, like reg sheet mylar? you could get at a high end sign supply shop

    Yes, go to your local sign shop. They have ALL KINDS of weird vinyls now. Most won't have a shine like automotive paint, but maybe some will.

    Maybe check and see if 3M has some samples on a website. They are the high-price manufacturer of sign vinyl.

    A word of caution: Get a pro to apply it if you want a large area covered. It is not easy to do and will be full of bubbles if done incorrectly.


    Edit: Go here for some samples http://www.signsupply.com/Vinyl/Vinyl_Vending_Machine.asp

    Look at the different brands in their "specialized" lines.

    Some lose the "chrome" effect when cleared over....also watch out for some thats only good for 6 months or so. The good stuff is "somewhat" good for a couple years. So stay away from the cheap stuff....lol

    These guys are distributors to the trade. If they cannot help you directly they will point you to one of their accounts that can help with small quantities.
