Nothing worse than a nice Atari cab let down by a chipped formica front bottom.

Stuff I used was from a company called Lawcris (google it) and it cost me about £65 to do a whole cabinet with loads spare.

It's thick grade formica stuff, comes extremely well packaged too.
Actually got mine on Fleabay but they're not listing any at the moment, their website has it though.

Can you remember or do you have the product code and / or description of the one you ordered?

Searching Lawcris for Formica just brings up an enquiry for and there are 17 different types of black laminate that they sell LOL

Here's the product description but he's not listing eBay at the moment:

SMOOTH WHITE MATT "FORMICA" STYLE LAMINATE SHEET 10' x 4'
( 252368249160 )

Formica is a registered trademark, what this company sell is an alternative so you won't find much by searching Formica on their website unless it mentions it being similar to it or something maybe.

I'm sure if you contact them, they should sort you out a sample or two then you can see for yourself if it's what you need.

Good luck!

Tony.

On a serious note though mate, they do provide samples on request and have a contact form.
