"If you can't use it now but can use it some day put it away" - my Dad.

just put it somewhere until you can find a use for it.

Buy yourself a super nice BRAT and wrap it up and store it somewhere. 50 years from now on your birthday, unwrap it, get it running and take it to car shows.

It would make a great glass bottom for a rusty Suby.

Just think you could look through the rust holes and not get wet!:banana:

If it's 1/4" thick and virtually unbreakable, it could be used as floorboards in a boat. Paint over it with a textured paint or scuff it up with a sander to make it non-skid. It won't rot like marine plywood.
