Frankly Mike you achieve outdoors what most of us strive for when we're building an indoor exhibition module.

It's good to see that your efforts have been rewarded by being featured in the leading magazine.

Please keep posting the pics here, we love to see them!

I'm gonna give this a try once. I have those grey underfloor sheets that are looking simular to this shops ceiling.

Does the car primer not damage the board? Or is it acrylic?

no not at all paul, its a foam based sign makers bord, used as a cheap plastic 8-4 sheets from sign makers..im useing of cuts,scrap bits, it loves super glue.. it cuts like butter,3 passes with a stanly nife, and its cut.. it is drawable with a pencile.,..humbrule paints stick like..er paint..
its best is u reimforsce the corners, or like i do.. fit floors and walls to not only make it light up correctly ,but adds strength,, its will be part off a larger set of 3.. all at differnt hights ect ,sat in its own pavement..
