I used the 3M DINOC carbon fiber-like stick-on product (from MetroStyling) for my panel. It came out great! A word or two of caution:
-- File down the edges of all panels that are covered and abut each other to provide for the additional thickness of the abutting wrapped panel edges (By golly, Van's tolerances are tight!
) BTW, wrap the edges of each panel - I would definately not try to do the entire panel with one piece of vinyl.
-- Use the available special contact cement for reinforcing critical edge openings, screw hole areas, etc. You may find that the vinyl material puckers-up a bit under the screw heads (I use nylon washers under the screw heads) - no big deal unless such trivial things drive you nuts.
There is quite a lot of past discussion on this subject in this forum.
