they are probably half the price of what ever place you got the prices from, but they require a $250 minimum order for delivery if you are within their truck delivery area. and delivery is FREE.
also they Chrage $15 a cut and everythign is stock 24 ft long,
you'd probably pay about the same, but have a lot of left over material for some other welding project.

I'd also stick with 1/16th wall aluminum skin .090" is much thicker than needed.

If you don't have any luck with eastern, I can cut down that material and ship it to you UPS, just call 704 726 9788

for a list of other suppliers of AL see this

I paid $2.50/lb for the aluminum rectangular bar and $35 for .020" (3' by 10') (~24guage?) and $65 for .032" (4'by8'). A little more than the the guy quoted above.
