    Here's the basic idea I'm going for. The patterns need some fine tuning yet but it APPEARS this should work.

    I bought some panels from Perfect Fit-McDonald, INC in Tukwila, WA. The panels are 32x48 and are $10 a piece. Not bad but the shipping is expensive. These are panels that you could make door panels with.

    That's the type of material I'm looking for, like the backing on a door panel. I haven't ordered any yet but did find it. Yeah, the shipping is more than the product, probably due to the dimensions I would guess.

    Hopefully it'll work the way I think it will. It has to be rigid but still flexible enough to get the panels into position.

    You need to find an upholstery supply outlet near you, they would have it.
