Do you have a picture to show how you use the pvc pipe to bend the side wraps?

While possible, with enough work, it could be done. It would be simpler and faster to just use new aluminum. Depending on how wide the sheets are on the donor, it would be best if there where at least 4' wide in order to rivet between two frame members. New 3003 sheets don't really cost that much.

I liked the idea of recycling and there are plenty of long sheets without holes

5052-h32 .032 thick. It's not to hard to find, check steel distributors/supply places. If you're lucky they'll have a sheer, plan the sizes you'll need, minus the curves you'll have to cut, and have them sheer it for you. Cost me $1 per cut and saved a lot of time and work. It can still be tough to bend around the side to the bottom.

Perhaps a stupid question, but does anyone sell prefab (already bent) belly pan sections? Seems like there would be a decent market for such a thing, even if you were just making them as "one offs."
