I absolutely love my FRP skin. Light weight, super durable. 100% salt water resistant and pretty darned inexpensive. No need to paint but it is a plane-Jane skin. Wipes clean. I don’t think that paint would even stick to it.
What is that exactly?

Fiberglass reinforced plastic. It’s what you see on the walls of commercial kitchens and restrooms.

Full sized sheets are a bit tricky to manage and handle but when you cut them down to tank sized panels the are a breeze.
Got it. That’s not a bad look for what I see in my head. I dig that.

I didn't know it was called FRP when I bought it. The panels are held on by 2 magnets each. The knobs are also held on by magnets. I need to do a panel for the end still.
