Where are you ? I have quite a bit I could spare some ...or you can usually get a 12ft by 4ft sheet for under $100.00 ...i paid 75.00 a sheet last time I bought it.

It's like roll flooring, it could be bent around a large radius curve if you had to.

I don't remember the exact price, but I paid approximately $250 for a sheet that was 6x8, the two part epoxy mastic was included in that price. You can also use contact cement for some applications.

You might want to save yourself some trouble. Check out Gladiator Cabinets . They,re available at Lowes's and include everything from wall hanging strips to cabinets to rolling cabinets to (get this) refrigerators covered with simulated diamond plate. the cabinet below goes for $168.....
