FYI. If you need 5-Bar (1/8"~2mm) on the west coast.

Just an FYI. It seems hard to get 5-bar at a reasonable rate west of the Mississippi. I've been reading the earlier posting and researching sources and just wanted to add another to the list of optional vendors for 5-bar treadplate. If you need 5-bar by the sheet, IMS (Industrial Metal Supply Co.) in the LA and Phoenix area stocks it for the best sheet price I've seen. I have had some outrageous quotes before, but $175 for a 4'x4' sheet and $257 for 4'x8' doesn't seem that bad. They have it in 16' sheets that they cut for you. Seems pretty good to me, but if anyone knows better, please let me know because I'm going to need quite a bit of it soon. Thanks.- Dave

have you guys found good sources East of the Miss. ? Was thinking Charles, Tony and I could buy a sheet and make some door panels. The only people i have found was Red Rhino for $159 but that would have to be shipped from Fla with questionable results.

Cutsmetal has 2x4 sheets, and I have a quote of $59 shipped to me in NC. 2x4 is slightly bigger than needed. That beats the heck out of $80 + $50ish shipping from DAP for a 4x4 shipped.

The Custmetal is a little thinner than 2mm (it's like 1.8mm) but it'll do.

If it has to come from Fla, check with Charles if by any chance he would not know of an RV driving up for MAR.
