Where can I get structural foam board locally? Colorado Plastics doesn't sell it.

I want to make lightweight but strong drawers for the Chili with a sleeping platform.

Well, I guess I can endure a SA answer if it acccompanies actual information. My Google search works fine, thanks. A little TOO well in fact. So I guess part of what I am seeking is a local warm body with whom to consult on intended usage, and actual material to hold in my actual hand... :lmao:

Did you try Plasticare? I don't remember them having it, but they would know where it could be found. They help people build boats and planes afterall.

Quality Foam, one of the suppliers listed on Thomasnet, is physically located in southern California. ACH is just north of the National Western complex.

When I get around to building something in the bed of the Taco, I'm going to use this stuff.

Holy smokes what a great customer service attitude. I love the translation of the Chinese proverb. Give folks more, not less, than what they seek and you won't fail.

Looks like their panels are good but not a structural replacement for plywood though. Great resources nonetheless.

I think Gary Waggoner found the perfect product. Paging Gary to the red chili paging telephone... ;)
