I was hoping to get it locally rather than have to wait while it is shipped (and pay freight). Guess I can still try some other local aluminum companies. I did check w/one other while waiting for replies here and they indicated they sold 40 thousands and 60 thousands (I'm assuming that would be .040 and .060) in sheets, all else was scrap and not sure about .025 thickness on hand. I was mostly worried about weight (what's a couple of thousands, right??!!), but cost and bendability could be definites to factor.

Yahoo! - I found a local supplier here in Denver area to sell me either the 5052 or the 6061 T6. The 5052 in an 4x8 .032 sheet will run about $30. The 6061 in same about $5. more. Now I just need to make sure I am clear on which to use. Can you tell me (I know there was much technical detailing above) in a few words, which one would you use to repair the area over plumbing in bellypan? Thanks,

I think 5052 would be fine. I say this after looking at the Aircraft Spruce and Specialty catalog. They have a couple of educational pages on aluminum. It says it has good resistance to corrosion and good workability. My 2c.

I'd use the 5052. The main reason is it's (slightly) cheaper. I don't think the technical differences in this application are worth 2 cents.
