    I'm restoring my Scared Stiff and was wondering what they used to wrap some of the side timber rails in?
    Is that stuff still available or should I just remove it sand prime and paint black?

    You might want to wiggle them a bit and see if any if the finger joints are broken (mostly on the longer ones)... for a few bucks you can buy some nice oak and cut/paint new ones...

    The material is 3M Di-Noc (or similar). It's not cheap. I'm looking into buying some right now from a local distributor.

    The closest match I could find in their sample book is from their Woodgrain collection and the code is: WG-2041

    Most guys would just paint but I've done this and it's not quite the same if you're going for an accurate restoration.
    I want to try doing it this way once and see how it goes.

    Thanks for the info. I doubt it I get wood grain Di-nock in Australia. I think I have to just paint it maybe. Someone else suggested kitchen kickboard tape. That would be nice and tough.

    Don't forget that taylorva makes new rails for a lot of games.

    If you do not buy the rails that have been recommended and are going to continue to use what you have, that black stuff peels off fairly easily if you hit it with heat from an industrial heat gun.

    I received a small sample of Di-Noc today.
    Going to perform a test at home this weekend and see how it works.

    I'm sure it can be had in Australia and anywhere else for that matter. 3M has global distribution.

    At the end I used kitchen kick board tale. Worked out really well and super tough.

    Just a quick update. I got that sample of Di-Noc home and it turns out that it's not really true black. Under strong light and compared to the original, it has some brown in it.

    So, not a good option in the end

    wasn't this stuff considered to be really close to the original vinyl wrap that bally and williams used?
