Are we talking about the polished shiney stuff like truck toolboxes are made out of? Or just plain looking stuff? Or is it all the same? Whatever the case, it would end up painted.

And so the next question would be, is there a usually price difference?Originally posted by Sherpa:

stuff you see pick-up tool boxes made from.
The regular alum diamond plate is the same
flat-finish as regular aluminum sheeting.
Other than those two reasons, well, those are the only two reasons I have. With the idea I was working on, if I used steel it would be HEAVY. I think.Originally posted by Screwzer:
<STRONG>Other than ease of working and weight, why go Aluminum? I believe steel is usually cheaper and you can avoid some nasty corrosion issues with steel/aluminum contact. Steel is stronger too.
Maybe I'm overly concerned about corrosion. Any experiences out there to share?</STRONG>
