--------- Chipboard is tacky and likely to deteriorate quicker than the corpse. Consider marine-ply.

---------- Quarter inch lead sheet should fit the bill. Found on churches everywhere. For the professional finish you will need a coke bottle, a glass one - not one of those nasty plastic things. And then pummel the lead into place. Both historians and police will appreciate your efforts.
