ABS is not rigid enough over the distance and you'll have tooo many mounting points or too much vibration.

The mfg use abs because they can press in shapes to reduce the vibrating
Coroplast is more rigid than ABS? I mentioned the other day that if I ever did purchase a Prelude I would want an ABS belly pan because I regularly bottomed-out. I did see that you mentioned a discussion on materials, but I do not remember reading it.

Well, if it is good enough for a Q45!

Thanks Sam
I am not sure if 1/16" thickness is too thin, or if you want to do what JoeG did and go with 1/8" thickness. I looked online for ABS sheets last year. Never saw in person.

Grainger will sometimes let you make a purchase without having a business account.

Both ABS and Coroplast come in different thicknesses so you match the panels to your particular needs. ABS is more durable than Coroplast in terms of heat or abrasion. The Coroplast is corrugated for stiffness. A coat of rubberized undercoat can dampen higher frequency vibration. Aluminum angle stock can be used to support panels and make hard mounts to reduce tearing.
