Can't find cloroplast! Where do you get it??? Or is there a better alternative?

I can't seem to find coroplast anywhere! I tried Lowes, Home Depot, and several local hardware stores. Most had never even heard of it! And the closest thing anyone had was some black plastic roll for going over the eve of a roof.

Where do you get coroplast?? Is there another alternative to using it? I'm going to be making wheel skirts and a belly pan.

Thanks for the help!

Look up a sign shop in the phone book and give some companies a call.

Try a sign store. Or wait until after election day - there'll be tons of it discarded by all the losing candidates...

You can probably go to the local candidate office and get them w/o crime. if you wanted to be active, you could say look this is for my gas mileage, I'm trying to be green etc. Maybe you'll get in the paper.

although not as light as caroplst, I used some "FRP" panels which were pretty durable and light. That's the stuff you find behind urinals in bars and other places to wash the "public" off . It's like fiberglass sheeting. I got it at Home depot for about 30 bucks a sheet.

4 mil is fairly common and probably best suited to our applications.
