Is aluminum just as easy to work with in fetal forming as steel? I am having a hard time finding a local steel supplier that won't charge an arm and a leg for a sheet steel panel and as much as I'd like to get my panels from something else (recycle, scrap, etc.) I'm not sure it is going to be time effective. However, an ex- co worker keeps a supply of aluminum sheet for his race-car and has offered it to me before at a reasonable price. I have no sheet metal experience as of yet. I'm excited to start messing with it though.
