You can get 5x12 laminat at HD special order. A guided circular saw system works great for ripping down right close to size leaving just enough for trimming with the trimmer. Put your end strips on first trim them then your front strip so it overlaps then ends to be trimmed. Back-splash is last to be glued to the wall after top roll down. I hope you ahave a J-roller You can also use a block of wood & hammer or rubber mallet to help get good adhesion. Make sure you have a good laminate file. You can use water based contact cement on new clean sanded substrate, but make sure if you putting new laminate over old laminate to strip the edges & sand the edges & remove the back splash & sand the top laminate to help glue grip (belt sander) & use only the original contact cement not water based as the water based will let loose over time. I assume your going to calk where the back splash & the top meet. I forgot about the sticks to suspend the top laminate until you get it lined up. Or you can also use a electric cord looped back & forth. I've use old plastic vertical blinds for sliding glass doors they work great.
