just wondering..looking for a place to get some sheet medal panals to get to work on my floor with..
yep, and it's expensive as hell. Try looking in the yellow pages under steel. Usually someone will be willing to sell retail in nearly every town. Also, try scrap yards, they can have good deals. You'll get raped forceably at Lowe's.
just use an old hood... hehe...
Works great... /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Go around to the sheetmetal and air conditioning shops. They will probably have some scraps laying around they'll let you have or sell cheap. We usually end up throwing a lot out because we have too many scraps.
I buy mine from a scrap yard $0.18 a LB most fabricators srap ends. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
The sheet metal used to make HVAC ducting is galvanized. Welding galvanized metal creates very unhealthy fumes. Just something to keep in mind...
Go to Rochester Steel & Surplus on Lyell Ave, they have the best prices on steel in the city. I got a 4'x8' sheet of 16 gage sheet metal from them for $30 a couple months ago when I did my floors. As long as they have what you want in surplus, it's dirt cheap. New steel is kinda expensive but that's the same everywhere. They charge something like $25 to sheer sheet metal though, so take a pickup truck to get a whole sheet and cut it at home.
cool ill check that out...wear abouts in rochester are you? wear do you go wheeling??
