Air Dam and Bellypan Material

Speedway motors has some sheet plastic that has a lot of uses. Of course it won't tolerate much heat. It can be permanently formed with careful use of a heatgun although this does destroy the gloss finish.

If you use some bracing...yes, it can be. Just have to be careful around the catalytic converter and down pipes...

Any sources of coroplast?

(I'm thinking the R/C aircraft suppliers probably sell it...not sure how competitive their prices are, though)

I picked up a sheet of 4x8 4mm white at the local sign making place. Got it fer just under $40 with tax.

I did find some thin plastic sheets that's similar to PVC at Home Depot fer $30. It's called 0.090 FRP 4x8 wall panel white. It's kinda smooth on the backside and definitely textured on the front side with various bumps. You can find it in the paneling section. Not sure how well it would hold up though...

FRP = fiber reinforced plastic

Don't know if it will hold up to UV rays as I'm not finding information on that. Looks like it's primary use is in commercial bathrooms and public areas. It's supposed to be fiberglass free...although some sites are listing the F part as fiberglass...go figure.

In what section? I think there are regional differences in what they sell.

On another board awhile back, someone told me that he was purchasing FR4 (fiberglass "sheet") at Home Depot. FR4 is very similar to circuitboard substrate.

Needless to say, the HD stores in my area didn't sell it.

I found it with the wall (wood) paneling stuff. It was sitting on the bottom underneath the wood stuff...kinda by it's lonesome self. It's supposed to be pretty resilient as it's used in commercial wall coverings. I'll try to git the SKU number tomorrow and post that up. Maybe the "friendly" customer section would help you located it in their store...

Nice pic.

Was at H-D yesterday, didn't find it.

Next time I'm there, I'll ask.

BTW, where are you geographically? Are you in a hurricane-prone area?
