The side is just some wood paneling...I wanted something cheap and light and at $6 bucks a sheet I was sold. Still trying to come up with a sliding surface...can't seem to find anything in the $50-$75 range...everything seems to be > $100 (Trex, PVC sheet, Plastic sheet)...any suggestions are welcomed.

That's going to launch you up for sure.

I'm pretty stoked, I plan on getting extensively booted...the FRP is $29 a sheet, x4 sheets is $120. I'm thinkin' getting under $100 isn't going to be possible so I may go with the FRP regardless.

Anyway, I'll be back in town to finish up the weekend after next and I'll throw some pics up of the finished product and hopefully some first day steez ;)

Looks good! My only suggestion would be to triangulate the front square. Post some pics when it is done!

You can also buy sheets of plexy glass but it gets expensive.
