I will go look in the scrap metal section of the dump in the morning. Might take a week or so to ship though.

EXACTLY what I was going to suggest, based on your location. I drive there from the northside when I need material, due to their selection, price, and service.

They'll do you right for a LOT less than HD, Lowes, Sears Hdware, etc.

I have done sooooooo much buisness with these guys. They are really cheep and VERY VERY VERY highly recomended. you can find any type of metal and in anyshape or size here, or find what you want in there scraps. I would look in the scrap first, there scraps are industrial sized and alot cheeper for the same . And they can make cuts for you if you want if you know your measurements already. As far as I know this is the best on the south side. (from clearlake, take 45 north, make a left on beltway heading west, exit telephone road, make a right on telephone heading north, they will be on the left hand side about half a mile or less.)

Kemah Hardware on 146 has all sorts of steel and aluminium bar stock. They should be able to fix you up. Or go see Mr. Dodie at Miller's Machine, he's super racer friendly........
