2024-T3 aluminum, Sacramento

Where can I purchase a piece of 2024-T3 alclad aircraft aluminum in the Sacramento CA area?

I need to make and polish a 22x20 exterior patch after replacing the original furnace with new Suburban.

Local AS dealer is clueless.

Hello. Go to theVAP - The Vintage Airstream Podcast - Home and click the Ambassador page, and then on the contributors page. Tim has an aluminum source for you there, where many restorers get their aluminum.

Aircraft spruce may not be the cheapest but the will be close. I have dealt with them many times for aircraft parts. They will ship what what you ordered when they say it will be shipped. rare these days.

Have you tried the yellow pages for sacatomato? I have purchased Alu from Cordo alum . they are about a block away from the AS dealer off hwy80. You know where all the trailer dealers are heading into Rio Limba. I've got 2024 and 5052 locally in sac from a few other places try the metal section of the Yellow pages. I'ld like to be more help but I now reside in Lodi and do not have your phone book in hand.

I do not know what type it is but Blue Collar supply on Florin Perkins Rd has a real good supply of aluminum sheets and all kinds of aluminum and lots of other cool stuff. It is kind of like a surplus store,they also have a pretty good supply of stainless nuts and bolts. have fun
