Trim panel board material?

I know I have been told where to get this material here but I lost the link. But I am also wondering if they have a minimum or some other reason to throw a wrench in the transmission would something like tempered Masonite work ok for the package tray in my Rambler?

I buy 4"x8' sheets from my local lumber yard. 1/8" thick ply similar to door skin material. they have a name for it that alludes me at the moment, but I just ask for 1/8" plywood and they know what I want . last sheet was $18.00 as I recall. it has exterior glue, but I coat mine with varathane just for insurance. I just made a set of inner door panels for the 62 with it last week in fact. going in for upholstery tomorrow

That door skin material is very useful..I make templates for parts out of it as well as it holds its shape..A sheet of that stuff never goes to waste..

Brian: Why does everybody want to use home building products to do upholstery work? The worst thing you can use in a vehicle is Masonite. When it gets damp it turns to mush, even the "tempered" kind which is just oil treated. It can also warp, or because it's so brittle, it can break where you attach it. Use 1/8" waterproof panel board or PVC foamboard for your package shelf. If it was me, I'd use the waterproof panel board. You won't find it at Home Depot or any other home building supply store. You buy it from an upholstery supply house. Any upholstery shop should be able to get it for you or have it in stock. If you can't find it online or near you, let me know and I'll send you a piece. Here's a link to show you what I'm talking about: http://www.perfectfit.com/15347/1545...anelboard.html

I recently bought my window run material (fuzzy velcro) from a sewing center. does that mean my windows will fall out now?

Actually that panelboard looks pretty slick. I may try some next time. I've been using this 1/8" ply for 20 years or so, ever since a local upholstery shop recommended it to me (they used it also). never had a problem with it, but I'm not opposed to trying something new.

Dan is correct guys. It was PVC panel board I gave David. I know of nothing better. Best of all I paid 22 dollars for a 4X8 foot sheet. It glues, staples, bends, and shapes with heat. It is water proof and light. Is there anything else you would want it to be?

I'll look into it anyway, I do work at a body shop maybe they would let me buy it that way? Hmmm, we will see, thanks.
