    Default Any sheet metal workers?

    How much would some custom sheets cut for the spaces in the pic below cost roughly?

    E-mailed a few local places but not heard anything back, ideally just a couple mm thick (keep weight down), and mirror finish stainles if possible. if cheaper in Alluminium i'll do that (and chrome vinyl after). trying to keep costs down at min with stuff...

    P.S. thanks for the pic from another of my threads, forgot who's it is

    Cheers...

    lee...stainless is going mad at moment with the aaf.......wreckon for material alone you would be on £35-£50 depending on the gauge, if you can take some dimensions i will have a look tommorw and see what we have altho ali tends to tarnish very quickly

    Yeah thats why i'd vinyl it worse case (but thats expensive too), all idea's at min but i'll take some measurments tomo cheers

    Few places on ebay said they'll do them, but sending templates there and postage back is a bit of a mess about. Still waiting for places to e-mail back tho. just no mid week days off for a bit now or i'd drive round

    2mm stainless will be heavy and it will not form to any curves easily, better off 1.2mm alloy.
