Home depot sells strips of steel and alunimium, normally near the door hardware section. You sould also use cardboard and bondo

Race plates I think it was makes carbon fiber plates. They used to have banners on here, but I can't get one to come up now. You can get one of those and cut it to size.

My cousin works for a customer car shop, and the use the cardboard/bondo trick a lot for cheaper jobs. Actually looks pretty good IMO.
