I need some flat fiberglass panels. aprox 2'x5'x3/16 thick. where would a person start looking? finished one side, would be good. thanks, jim.

Make those
Those are called flats in the fiberglass trade..make a table with formica top ..wax it up good and then layup your panels as needed..I have looked for that sort of thing and no one I know makes panels like that..Just keep adding material until you get the thickness that you need.. :sweat:

its called pultrusion. thats actually the name of the process of making the stuff but thats usually what its refered to. you would need to goto a plastics supply house and buy it or have them order it. here is one online, they have it available in 1/4".
