If that stuff was for structure, not decor, it would have 'glass on both sides, and preferably continuous, straight fibers. Back before the beancounters ruined Boeing, their surplus shop used to have a marvellous variety of honeycomb-core structural panels of various weights, down to near-Coroplast and beyond 3/4" plywood. Making your own sandwich panels with foam, epoxy, and 'glass cloth is not all that darn difficult, and you get to do curves and whatnot.
There is no excuse for a land vehicle to weigh more than its average payload.
