I have been looking around and I can not find what material is used for the skins. Thanks

I think Bart uses Alupanel. It's an 1/8" panel with polyethylene core and a thin prefinished layer of aluminum on each side. There are several brands out there of similar stuff, I used Dibond for mine. You can get it at sign supply shops.

I have found in my area, southeast Michigan, at a sign supply shop Poly-Metal. It is supplied in 4' X 8' panels at around $78.00 in a color.
