You usually need to make the Masonite panels only when you don't have any other options. Your fairly late model truck has 'custom', form fitted, plastic panels readily available so why go to the trouble of making Masonite ones? If it were me, I would get a set of stock plastic ones and modify them with the fiberglass to suit my desires. Cover them with a layer of 1/8" or 1/4" closed cell foam which will smooth out the surface; softness is a secondary consideration. With the closed cell foam you can also add sculptured details that look great covered with the final upholstery.
