Replacement Laminate for White/Light Grey Interior?

I am doing a few mods to my interior, which is built from the standard SMB particle board topped with a white or light grey laminate.

Nancy at SMB North, who has been extremely helpful to me at every turn, has offered to cut new parts for me out of their stock, and ship them to me.

However, I would much prefer to cut my own parts from plywood, and glue on a laminate surface, if I can find a laminate that will match.

What laminates have other folks found that match?

Thanks!

I'm going to bump this out of desperation. Does anybody have any sources for a matching laminate material? C'mon...somebody out there has dealt with this...
Thanks.

SMB uses prelaminated boards they order the truckload. Head to any specialty plywood store or countertop store and look for their sample chips. Typically Wilsonart or Formica and a couple others. White should be simple to match, the grey a little harder.

Thank you, Flux. I'll give it a try.

I found a perfect match in the Formica family of laminates, mine it's beige but they have lots of gray. Just take a sample with you.

Glider, have you decided what type and thickness plywood you're going to use?

I'm considering replacing the drop-down doors on my side door panels with something thinner and lighter than stock SMB particle board. (The weight is causing a problem on one drop-down with a not-quite-adequate snap close and easily warped hinges, ... the big thick panels just seem unnecessary, unwieldy, inelegant ;-) But it's difficult to sand the edges of typical grade plywood to a truly "finished" edge.
