Cheap Tambour Material or Doors

Hi everyone,
For those who are replacing their tambour doors/panels, I found a place that carries 4' X 8' raw real wood veneer) material for $120 + $41 shipping. The 1/2" wide and 5/32"(> 1/8") seem to be the correct size to the original. My plan was to cut the size I need and paint them to match the Airstream I am restoring. They also have the aluminum tambour sheets ($200) for those who like that look. I've seen this material go for much more at other sites. Sam .

How'd it go? I'm thinking of replacing the tambour in bathroom, rather than fixing it. Seems like bathroom is always going to get moist and the original cloth backed wood tambour is vulnerable .. . .whilst pvc or aluminum should hold up.
