Answer: 
Use green (or blue) board for walls. Use regular (this stuff) for the ceiling. Green board on the ceiling traps moisture and will be problematic.

Answer: 
Probably the best application of this product would be ceilings. Since it is lightweight, it would be easier holding it overhead, but be carefull. It is lightweight, but it may break easily if you are not careful in handling it.

For a 2015 Honda Pilot, you will not be able to do so. The 3rd row cup holder lack one extra inch! It is only 47" wide.
For a 2016 Ford Explorer, the trunk is even narrower by a few inches.
Consider buying (and spending a little more money) on either a 3x5 board, a HD delivery ($60-70), or renting a truck from HD ($20 / 75 minutes)

Hello!! Thank you for your question regarding our Sheetrock Ultralight 4'X8' Panels. A single sheet of 1/2" 4'X8' Sheetrock Ultralight weighs approximately 41lbs, so, carrying it in any SUV or car would be no problem. Actually fitting it into the vehicle will be the tricky part.

No, I would not recommend this material for that purpose. This material, in it's raw form, is chalky and dusty and would not suit that need. It's also meant as a wall and ceiling cladding, not as a structural building material.

Hello teli, thank you for your question regarding our Sheetrock Ultralight Gypsum Panels. Gypsum Panels in general would not make good shelves. They cannot take the wear and tear that something like a plywood shelf could take plus they do not have the same structural properties for supporting weight on them that a piece of plywood would have being used as a flat surface.
