Is pvc foamboard a hard plastic material or more like the stuff they mount large pictures to? I have started looking for a sign shop to see this stuff. Just wondering if you can staple thru it? I've seen the panels they sell for street rod interiors, is that similar?

PVC foamboard is like a solid sheet of PVC, but only half the weight. It is flexible, but it is not flimsy. It goes by the brand names Komatex, Sintra, CelTec, and Palight. Yes, you can staple to it and sew through it.

Good morning i just used Sintra for my door panels on my coupe. I use 3m spray glue to adhere the foam and the door fabric no staples. there is no way to sew it unless you pre-drill all the holes. I doubled up on the board to make a 1/4" panel then added the foam backing.

I don't know what sewing machine you're using, but I can sew through 1/4" of plywood with my Consew 226. Sewing Sintra is even easier. You wouldn't have had to double up the Sintra, it's plenty strong at 1/8" thick (3MM). These door panels were made with 1/8" Sintra.

Here's two pieces of 1/8" Sintra sewn together. You could even do this with a home sewing machine if you had a large needle and just used the hand wheel to sew one stitch at a time.

I don't have a sewing machine but my panels are flat no stiching needed. Because my door latches protrude about 1/8" from the wood I used the first layer to make a flush panel. I only used pieces for the first layer then hot glued them to the second full size layer. then glued 1/8" foam backing to it all.
