    Aluminium sheet

    I'm thinking about modding the front of my shuttle with a custom aluminium front. Does anyone know where to buy a sheet of aluminium small enough to cover the front of a SN45G

    Thanks all

    Very different aluminium , to get it to match the shuttle you will need to brush it, the best method is to get a wire brush and brush in the same direction evenly across the aluminium making sure not to hold the aluminium with your hands as it will get grease on it. When you've brushed it clear off the dust then spray a coat or two of clear coat to protect the finish

    heres a quick example of the finish with very little time spent on it as its not on view:
