    Ouch, maybe you should look into prices for UHMWPE of this size.

    The panels you are making, are these polyester or vinylester? If so, stay away from epoxy as your mould. Epoxy is not enough resistant to styrene to act as a mould in a production environment.

    In that case take a VE, such as Duratec.

    Other option would be to sand and polish the steel. Floor sanders can be used.
