When using plastic outside be sure it is UV resistant. Black is usually best 
but it may also act as a conductor at RF.

One source for excellent freebies is your local glass shop. Ask for scrap 
pieces of plexiglass/lexan as used in windows and doors. Use a sabre or band 
saw to cut and double up if necessary for stiffening. Ive been using this 
material for decades for cage verticals.
