Box Tops

I need lots of them for school, can you guys give me some?

Okay for real... a friend and I just made two boxes, about 6ft long each. Before we made them, we thought that we were set with our top... well it turns out the place we were going to get out plastic from just jacked their prices, and we don't want to pay $175+. Anyone know of any good materials for a box topsheet, and a place to order it?

life IS good.

How about some plexi-glass or Lexan from Home Depot?

Lexan is expensive though. Try the plexi-glass, but when you drill it, be careful not to crack it. Backcountryfun (I think it was) tried it, and the top blew up on him. (I think!!!)

plexi-glass sticks same with lexan... youve gotta use UHMWPE or Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene which is the base of your board called p-tex... thought id give the full name for when your lookin for some of it bcus p-tex will prolly get you nowhere in home depot...

Puckboard actually isnt that good of a topsheet. Its low density polyethelene. If you're going to use poly you need the UHMW but that's too expensive. So save your money and get some sheetmetal. Its perfect. If you don't believe me check out the DC mtn lab vids. See how good the dragon box slides. Its cheaper than high grade poly and will last longer. But it's going to rust so you'll want to put some rustoleum on it. I used the rustoleum textured outdoor spray paint and it slides really well. Just have to throw some snow on it so it doesnt dry out as you ride it.

i know the person that owns a local plastics shop and they orderd me a peice of polyethlene for like $55 i think it was 4x8. All i had to do i go pick it up when it got there. So i would ask a local plastic manufacture.
