Default Skid Plate/Belly Pan

I recall a while back seeing a thread about a homemade skidplate to replace the plastic that easily cracks. Maybe I was seeing things, but I'm pretty sure its around here. A raccoon destroyed mine in return for me taking its life. So I'm headed to Home Depot to make something, just looking for a little guidance.

Where did you buy that DiBond? Doesn't look like they sell it at local hardware stores..? -_- And if you don't mind me asking, what was the price like?

Its actually a sign making material. I ordered it through my workplace, but you should be able to get it at any sign supply shop. (we use Midwest Sign Supply) Its not cheap at around $100 for a 4'x8' sheet. A similar material would be 'e-panel' and thats around $75 a sheet.

Financially e-panel is not good option, cuz it costs the same as brand new skid plate. Plus, you have to cut it and drill the holes. But it is stronger than plastic.
Thats why I am looking for another alternative.

Yah, its not an economical material, but it is a much more durable, rigid and lightweight material than any plastic. You could run over just about anything and it would still be intact.
