This sounds like good advice - I put on several pieces of .032 and found it to be just right for curves and small pieces (front and rear center panels and rear quarter panel). The longer side piece, however, was tougher and I would use .040 if I did it again for this large flat area. I would have thought that the curves would be tricky - but it is those big flat areas that are difficult.
Thanks for the help - sounds like .032 was standard on the inside.
