You could always use this. Its what the Redline Panels are. I also used them for ground effects on Stock Cars. You can use sheet metal breaks and Bead Rollers to shape it.

I'm using a product called, Alumilite. Thin alum skin on ea side with a black plastic core. Buy it at sign shops. 1/3 $$$ of alum, quiter because of core, pre painted certain colors, lighter too.

Cons; black edge shows when cut, bending(must cut V groove), cant weld. I've used it and have found some tricks to get around the cons. I t was the floor in my last rail.
