    some help please
     
  3. I can't help you with dimensions but I can suggest material. I used 3003 H14 aluminum to fabricate hood panels, seat backs, belly pans and misc parts on my track roadster. I started with .063" but found it difficult to make bends. I did okay though but when I got to the hood top I got piece of .050, same grade and had more success with it.

    I would suggest you buy a copy of Metal Fabricators Handbook by Ron & Sue Fournier. Barnes and Noble carries it usually. There are any number of similar books. Any or all will be helpful for you.

    I used .080 from the drops rack at ALRO steel, have no idea now what the alloy was, and I made 'em to fit between the door, trans hump, and still fit my butt into. ;)
