acrylic panels for door?

At the upholstery supply shop this weekend, got all my vinyl, chip board, etc. They didn't have any foam board. They recommended a 4x8 black sheet of acrylic instead. They claim it will heat bend just fine and would make good door panels. $40 a sheet is what they sell it for, less 30% for the sale they're having. I haven't found anyone locally who stocks foam board and I was going to just get luan plywood, but I've got a section of cab in my 48 F1 pickup that needs a pretty good bend. Any thoughts on the acrylic sheet, or do I need to continue the hunt for foam board?
