That type of plastic, but around .020-.030" were i could make holes for the screws on the underside of chassis and also holes so i could mount it to the chassis somehow. I just want something that I can use for racing asphalt every once in a while, and take it off for carpet without having to deal with an adhesive.
No idea who would sell you a sheet of lexan, suppose you could start asking anyone that manufactures bodyshells if they would sell you some, never know if enough of us ask they might start selling sheets of lexan for chassis protection purposes
.030" is the std thickness of most bodyshells and would be more than enough. I only started using the lexan sheet on my car about half way through the year and the amount of abuse it has taken in 6/7 outdoor races is just unbelievable, if i wasnt using it i probably would be looking towards a new chassis by now
And i was wrong before it the lexan only weighs 23g's after trimming, i'll see if i can get some pics of it so it shows up the damage...
