    Any of you inmates know where I can get a 4foot square sheet of heavy duty plastic? Free best... Lol

    A sheet of pallet dividers would work.

    In black.

    Looking for something to use as a skin for side by side doors I'm making.

    What about a cheap blue tarp?

    You might try sign shops. Industrial Coroplast (corrugated polypropylene plastic) is often used for signboards (real estate and elections). Usually white but it is available in other colors and a variety of thicknesses. The 2 mm stuff would be way too flimsy. 4 to 5 mm is the most common but still might not be sturdy enough. Thicker is available.
    (I used to use the stuff to make cheap model airplanes.)

    Thanks, will check it out


    EDIT
    $100 for a 4x8 sheet black and $280 shipping, plus taxes... wow...

    I have sheet steel that I am going to use instead...

    Thanks though

    Wow! I have a bunch of Coroplast but that doesn't do you much good (mostly the 2 mm which would be too flimsy anyway). Shipping would be more than its worth. No luck on sign shops? - I know they don't pay $100 per sheet for it!
