The skin on mine is 2024-t3. Many bellypand are 3003 and 5052. I bought 3003 for my belly pan and belly wraps. I also have used it for all my exterior patches. It's hold up well. But it does scratch easily.

If you need longer sheets, try I needed a 17' sheet for the exterior of my 1970 project and they were great to work with.
