Outer skin sources for skin similar to Intech trailer

Postby Delinport » Thu Nov 25, 2021 3:54 pm

I'm currently designing a trailer based on an aluminum trailer and frame. Most of the frame will be 1" square aluminum tube. I plan on using VHB tape to attach the outer skin like Intech does in the video below. The problem is, I don't know what the material is or where to source it. Anybody know of a product that can be purchased in the US that will work for the exterior? Preferably close to Oregon. Thanks for the help in advance.

I'm guessing it's filon. Dunno where to source it.

:thinking:
