  • What type of Aluminum

    Hello, new member here from the Seattle area. I am building my 1st teardrop and when I was thinking about it I thought "I'll put an aluminum skin on it" . Well now when I'm getting ready to buy the aluminum there are all sorts of choices, first alloy 2024, 3003, 5052 etc. Then the Finish, mill finish, Alcad, anodized and what ever I have missed. The quotes i have all got from local sheet metal place are for 5052 with a mill finish, but I heard mill finish will stain and be hard to clean. So my question is what have other people used and why? If you have used mill finish do you like it or not and why. And any other information you'd care to share about aluminum.

    Thank you in advance
