They have really think plexi glass. Around a cm I'd say. Check Home Depot.

you could do like the xpods or your could put a couple screws in and glue it with some good glue. i also think they make a bondo that dries clear like plastic you could try that.

Styrene. Available at almost every hobby store, in various thicknesses for sheets and also in shapes such as square tubes and c-channel. It is what I used on my box.

For bonding you want "Gap-filling super glue" because it is much thicker then standard super glue. Then use bondo or plastic model putty for finishing.

to start off, bondo is not an adhesive. it will not hold things together. you want to fill a large area with something like epoxy or fiberglass, and then bondo over the tiny grooves that are left. plexiglass is one of the most widely used supplies in the modding community. you can get it in all sizes, and colors. i can link you to some good vendors if you are interested. finally, if you go with acrylic you can use a type of acrylic bonding agent. it actually melts the two pieces together. link.
