Default Materials suggsetion for kegerator

So I have removed all the crap from the door of my soon-to-be kegerator (it's too small to hold more than one corny keg and a 5# CO2 bottle...but I'm treating it as a learning experience so when I find the right size fridge I can make it easily enough! ) So what I want to know is what does everyone use to replace the plastic on the inside of the door once you cut it off?

I've read where people have used plexiglas and painted the back of it whatever color desired, as well as folks that have bought a whiteboard, cut it to size, and secured it to the door; this way they could use the white board to write the beer style/FG/IBU's etc. on it. If you use plexiglas, you could use a chalk marker to write the info, too. You can use a skilsaw or utility knife for cutting the whiteboard, and most hardware stores will cut plexiglas for you. Some other options are galvinzed and stainless steel, but much more effort and/or tools are required.

Here's a thread on the whiteboard technique: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/help...erator-461495/

Here's one for the plexiglas route: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/danb...-build-391199/

I just left mine as is. The foam insulation isn't hurting anyone!

Thanks, guys. I was thinking about getting a sheet of rigid insulation and gluing that to the door and then putting whiteboard or plexi on top of that. I have to say getting plain melamine board looks to be the cheapest route, but I don't know if it's solid melanmine (whiteboard) or melamine on particle board (i.e. cheap bookcase / desk material.) I'd be reluctant to go with cutting a white board if it were particle board or something like that underneath the plastic surface.
