Who MFG inner beans for walls and roofs simliar 1958

So has anyone ever seen a rolled over airstream? Finally got most of the walls off found something awesome a huge kink in the supports mine definitely went on to the passenger side at some point then on it's roof.
So I need some extruded c channel .0125 or 1/8 inch by 1.00" lap bands 22ft . I can bend them.
Also if anyone has a contact number for Alcoa I am going to need a spool of aluminum 10ft wide 3/16 pure aluminum.

Pure Aluminum?
The skin is an alloy with a thin layer of pure aluminum on the surface.

Don't think you'll find "pure aluminum" outside a lab. Like most metals it needs to be alloyed to be useful.

If you're really interested in materials I suggest Carroll Smith's "Engineer to Win"

http://www.carrollsmith.com/books/in...ner2win-detail

If you're interested in rivets and every other fastener it's "Screw to Win" or " "Nuts, Bolts, Fasteners and Plumbing Handbook"

I can't give enough praise to Smith for his straightforward writing and invaluable technical details. If you want to know about Cherry Q rivets and when to use them this is your reference. I guarantee the money spent on his books and time invested in reading them will reap dividends far exceeding your cost.

Cheers,

John

BTW....

The surface of un-coated aluminum alloy will be aluminum oxide.

Rib's

I had the same problem and what I did was to make rib's out of ash strips laminated in the shape of the rib's. Once I see how to send you a Email I can send you photos of what I did. The wood ones are much better than the aluminum ones and no one will see them. John

Airparts

Airparts has an online catalogue, Several years ago they branched out to support the AS market. They carry sheet/rolled aluminum, 4130 steel in various forms and also carry rivets for AS restoration. Give them a look.
