This is the thread from which I learned about PolyMetal. I am buying a similar product from a local supplier for my decklid spoiler build. Some notes: PolyMetal is only a brand name for this type of product. All the suppliers recognized my description (a layer of black thermoplastic between two layers of aluminum, usually 3mm or 6mm thickness) with different brand names: DiBond, Komalu, and AlumaCore. Don't buy it online! The shipping charges are more than the sheet, and that is ontop of product prices already 2 to 4 times as high as when I called local suppliers. Instead of $150-200+ with another 150 in shipping, I will pay $51.76 tomorrow, total,taxes included.

I hope that helps someone later down the road. Looking forward to this build a lot!
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
