    I am redoing a billboard type store sign. The main pillars are 8"posts in good condition, the cross members on the inside are also in good shape. I will be removing the plywood and replacing it with vertical 8'x4' pieces. the measurements are 8'x24'. what are your recommendation on a substrate to use on this. I will be using cast vinyl and lam on this substrate.

    My first go to substrate would be a polymetal product like DiBond, MaxMetal, PolyMetal, BeBond, etc. etc.
