Belly aluminum

HI
I'm trying to locate a source for belly aluminum for a 1957 Caravanner as well as a flat sheet of aluminum for the exterior. We live in the Northeast and would prefer to travel to the place unless there aren't any companies in this area then we would have to have it shipped.
Thanks for your help!

Try Aircraft Spruce and Airparts, Inc. You can find them on line, and if their retail locations aren't anywhere near you , you can order sheets of aluminum rolled up for a reasonable shipping charge.

Depending on where you really are in the Northeast, you can most likely pick up aluminum suitable for a belly pan locally. Look for 5052 or 3003 alloys.

What Aerowood said. I get 5052 thru a local sheet metal shop....you know, the shop that build AC ducting, etc. My guys don't charge shipping because they have it delivered with regular shipments.
