I used 2 sheets of 4'x8' 28 gauge galvanized sheet metal. I also ended up using 16-24' of 1"x1/8" steel bar stock for the skeleton.

With paint, caulk, rivets, plexi and lights I'd say it came in at about $150.

I still have a little sorting out to do with the rear taillights/turn-signals, but that shouldn't add more than another $20 to the tab.
