well its generic because they only carry one kind of stuff that could possibly work for this application. Besides it wasn't too thin, it was too thick to conform to the panel. It's true purpose is couch upholstery, table cloth, and stuff that doesn't really require tight bends and 3d shapes without seams.
perhaps,of course, you like purple fuzzy faux fur or leather "imprinted" vinyl. I just like the plain old smooth vinyl, so maybe you are right there are plenty of choices, but just one that I would choose because it is similar to what the pros use..
