Everything behind that is coroplast "pallet liner" that I got for 2 bucks a piece, and overlapped from back to front using self-tapping screws, except for the area under the cat, where I used aluminum.

The entire thing cost me 24 bucks, and so far it has been rock-solid.
I think that is what I have conceived in my mind; heard a few horror stories about covering the area under the cat though; no issues for you? Do you have any pictures? Where specifically did you get the pallet covers, most pallets I see don't have anything over them.
