Aluminum

What grade of aluminum was used for the trailers built in 1960. I have some panels that need to be replaced and would like to get as close to original in that respect. Or at least something that can be brought to the same shine. Thanks for your help.

I believe the older trailers used 2024-T3 Alclad Aluminum. It is a common alloy used on small planes.

2024T3 Alclad Sheet/Strip Aluminum from Aircraft Spruce
