I bought 16 ft2 from here. The guy i was in communication with was very king. He defined himself as
Human Forklift (formerly known as “Sales”)
in his email signature 🙂 He offered me to cut it to 2 pieces of 8 ft2 to decrease (~ the half) the price of the shipping.
I paid (2020-12-14) 155 CAD for:
- 16 ft2, 18 gauge sheet steel
- cutting by 2 pieces (2 x 8 ft2)
- shipping from Ottawa to Brossard, QC. It came the next day
If you know a better (cheaper) place where we can buy sheet metal, you can share it in the comments.
I almost finished with the welding and i used ~ ¼th of these 16 ft2. It will take place in another project for sure. I will only apply a thin layer of used oil and it will wait.
Thoughts About the Welding
The settings are on the inner side of the door.
The Trabant’s sheet steel is 1 mm, this is ~20 gauge. I weld 18 gauge to the existing 20 gauge.
I switched to 4 C and voila! I will continue in the next post.
God have mercy.
