I bought a 1991 Olds Custom Cruiser back in February and have been getting it ready for an Epic family road trip with my wife (has not been informed on the purchase) and my 10yo and 6 yo.  

Plan is head West July 1 and hit Grand Canyon, San Diego, PCH, Disneyland, Vegas and back through the Dakotas.

I am not sure how to upload pictures via the site. Help as I need some opinions on completion of the 1991 OCC

So my plan is/was to take the unmolested 1991 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser and wrap it with a faux wood grain in a grey/black tone to play off of the lower ABS coloring.

The current matte grey wrap will only be exposed 1-1/4" beyond the wood grain to create the "panel" perimeter.

My graphic guy was having a hard time getting the grain to look how I wanted; so I picked it up Wednesday and installed the new powder coat wheels (to match ABS) and BF Goodrich 3-1/4" wide whites.

But people who have seen it as it sits really like the look.

Details on the car. 1991. 18,000 miles. It was for sale on Craigslist in Missouri and actually was discussed on the forum. The car is new condition. The paint on the door hinges scraped off when opened (as if they had never been opened). The car has never been detailed and is flawless.

We took it, put new hoses, rubber, water pump, thermostat, fluids, and radiator to get her road ready for the trek across the West.

Welcome, nice score man! I'm also digging the grey, and those whitewalls with the baby moons are killer!

Wow, that's a great and different look. I'd leave it as is, as the OCC never was optioned with wood.

Found many brands out there, with mixed reviews on quality, and a ridiculous amount of options.

so questions...

Decent brand suggestion?

A size/back spacing that's good?

who makes good white walls? (the brands I am finding I never heard of QQ )

TY and I apologize in advance for beeing a complete fool at this. I tried google, and searched for hours, this is just a big purchase for me so I want some confidence. Appreciated and TY again!
