New interior panel recommendations

I need to make new panels to fabric cover in my 49 Ford truck. The panels are flat (door and kick panels) and some curved (rear quarter panels). I purchased the rod doors headliner panel which is ABS (I think). What is suggested for new panels including bending the quarter panels and who is a possible supplier? I do not have access to anything like vacuum forming and hoped it could be done with a heat lamp or heat gun, comments?

PVC Foamboard is your best bet. Read this thread: Panel Material

Dan,
Thanks for the response. I have located a supplier not too far away. 3mm 4 x 8 sheet is $40.

Dan,
Is the rattle can DAP high strength adhesive suitable for gluing foam backed headliner to my Rod doors abs headliner panel and also for gluing fabric to the foam board that I am going to buy?
