Sorry, I used a product brand name that doesn't exist anymore.
The product is basically corrugated plastic cardboard.
Corrugated Plastic Sheets - Glass & Plastic Sheets - Â*The Home Depot
It can be had in thicknesses from 3/16 all the way up to half inch.
The thin stuff will work fine, but the thicker the better.
I will have one sheet against the glass, and one sheet spaced 2 or 3 inches from the other. After filling with pour foam, this will give a nice 2 or 3 inch insulated panel that is made to fit the window.
Other things can be added to increase stiffness of the panels. Like adding 1/2 inch wooden dowels into the foam space before pouring it, ect.
Feel free to ask anymore questions if I missed anything.
