I used a piece of sheet aluminum. I think I used a thickness between 1/8" and 1/16" in a stiff alloy. The frame of my rack is 1" square tubing. I attached the panel by laying down a bead of flexible caulk, drilled through the floor into the tubing, and used aluminum pop rivets to secure it. I used about 50 rivets. I went with aluminum rivets because I'd rather they corrode before the floor, and they're easy to replace. The caulk is still flexible after 6 years. I think the aluminum was ~$120.
