2024T3 Is AlClad. The original skin panels were made of this same material and will do well for corrosion resistance as long the "Al"uminum "Clad" coating isn't removed via scrapes or other such damage. It is not recommended for the belly skins because it is the most likely area to receive regular abuse from simply driving down the road thus damaging the AlClad coating and permitting corrosion to attack the underlayer alloy.
I'll be going with a 6061T6 for our skins in either a .020 or .025 for our belly skins. It is highly corrosion resistand and really strong, it has great shear strength(side load) and it polishes very nicely. Besides its on the bottom and most of it lays flat so its not to difficult to work with in its application.
