I had good luck with the Delta Motorsports door boards, too.  If you're going to make your own from scratch, though, I would suggest using something waterproof.  It seems like most of the deceased door panels I've seen have come from water getting in through the backside.  I've tried to make a good seal behind them with some new plastic sheeting, but it seems to me that a more permenant solution would have been to use some big sheets of stiff vinyl; some kind of plastic that has similar material properties to fiberboard.  I suppose that thin sheets of properly treated plywood would also work.  It seems like that's what they're always using on the Discovery channel car shows.

Good luck with the restoration!  Put up lots of pictures on the JHPPG so we can see, too!
