I'm not talking about the Masonite type product you used in your cars 40 years ago. I'm talking about the Masonite the OP could find in his home improvement store today. All I am saying is that there are better choices out there than any Masonite type product for panel material. Being old school doesn't mean not changing with the times. They used to pad car seats with cotton, and cover the seat springs with burlap. Is that still happening? Car manufacturers sometimes make mistakes with things they decided to use. Just ask anybody who had a GM headliner in the 80's. Almost all of them failed because the glue failed and the headliner fabric separated from its foam backing.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
