I did not phrase my inquiry too well. I was wondering was panel material was better to cover. Masonite or ABS

ABS would last a lifetime where as Masonite would still be subject to rain/wet issues. You’d have to research what adhesives work best for either depending on the material and type of backing on the vinyl you choose.

They both cover the same, but like tedlovesjeeps71 said. "ABS would last a lifetime where as Masonite would still be subject to rain/wet issues" Also when you drill into Masonite with a regular drill you get blowout. You have to use a Forstner drill and LOTS of dust when you use a router wear a mask. Get some 3M 90 spray adhesive works great. Home depot has it.
