Is it just me, or do most of us have 4'x8' panels and no one makes vacuform panels that size....seems like the vendors are not thinking it thru.

Greg, the raw material for thermal forming is 4 x 8 and there is a an area of waste to " draw" the hot plastic onto the form, that is why most panels are smaller. There are sources in the entertainment industry such as Warner Brothers Studios Staff Shop that have larger panels. These are also available in fiberglass and re-enforced gypsom upon request. Contact their website for the studio and search for the staff shop to see if you can order from them. Quantities matter to get the price down!
