c/f w/ foam core, $140.

That's pretty serious stuff.

There used to be the little airplane company just up the street called Boeing. They use to have a surplus lot one could rummage through. But I would suspect that I would find a gold brick before I could find any of that honeycomb material.

Bob Stormer used to travel with one of his kitchen cabinet doors. I think it still had the knob on it.
Would Fiberglass be an economical substitute?

Good day!

This is what our club handed out as trophies for our first indoor anual race. Everyone who raced got one with decals of where they placed in the classes they raced. It is plexi glass with the decals on the bottom side.

I got Brandon Skewes to make me a personalized set-up board & shock stand. They are awesome and so is the price. Well worth taking a look at.

My set up board of choice is a glass cutting board I find at Walmart. I tried a few acid etchings on the underside of regular pane glass using hand cut decals, but it was a lot of work and the acid didn't whiten the glass as much as I would have liked. Plus, they don't stand up well to travel with Southwest, right Bill? I haven't had the Walmart cutting boards break though. I think the tempered glass is more resilient. It isn't smooth on both sides though so I can't etch it very well. Plus, they're heavier than I would like. So fat the nicest/lightest/flattest boards I have seen are the CF or FG honeycomb boards, which almost without exception are always " A piece I had laying around the shop" or "I have a buddy..."

Light
Economical
Flat

Pick two.
