I do not think the allow matters (My opinion). Use scrap or the cheapest you can find. There is no need to fix the break in the channel. The channel is not continuos and has gaps in many places.

I agree, if you feel the need just put a plate in the bottom of the channel.

I'm thinking I'll clean up the edges where the break occurred and bend a couple of short sections of channel to use as a splice. I have lots of scrap 6061 T-6 left over from building my airplane. Thanks for the advice.

You will notice the break in the C-channel at both rear corners. How should I go about repairing this? Thanks, in advance.
