door panel board


hey all

well time to get back at the 49 project,One of the things I still have to buy are the replacement door panels.Now chevs of the forties make the backer boards for the 49 styleline which should be the same as my 49 special 6 sedan.Not terribly expensive but of course they are oversize and cost a fortune to ship.So got to thinking exactly what are the backer boards made of?thick cardboard or panel board and could a guy not find something at the local rona that would do the job?Anyone ever made their own?I have the old panels for patterns and I can get the fabric from sms autofabrics if need be.Any help appreciated.

Old school way is just what you mentioned, wall paneling board, cut to shape with jigsaw
