Get thee to a scrap yard, arm thyself with a hack saw (Milwaukee Sawzall
if you can find a plug in), and removeth the roof from something big,
ugly, and made in Detroit.
Mid 70s T-Bird or Plymouth Behemoth or whatever looks shot. You can
usually find a gutted car sitting in the back 'on the way out' that the
scrapyard guy won't mind you chopping up.
Or you can buy it new. Talk to the fellas at a welding shop, around here
it's $50 cdn or so for a 4x8 sheet.
Do not let Bruce Clough know I said this ;-)
