Aluminium Sheets Needed in a hurry!

Hello all,

Right, so apart from my Alfa-fetish, I also have two old buses. One is being restored (incredibly slowly!) and the other is up for sale on Donedeal (I was only ever going to take the engine and gearbox from it). Anyway, I have a couple of people coming to see it in the next few days and it is missing a panel. So, I need to get some light aluminium panelling (4ft by 2ft) and rivet it on. Anybody know somewhere decent that supplies aluminium panels in the Dublin area that might be able to help me out tomorrow?

I promise to explain more about the rusty old CIE bus another day

Simon

No idea of anyone but have you tried any metal fabricators ? They shouldn't have any problems cutting an 8' x 4' sheet to size.


Edit : looks like Mark was able to help

Working on the other radio station bit - will take a bit of time but hopefully not as long as the bus restoration!

Thanks for the PM Mark, have talked to your friend before, will give him a shout.

David, I think there is a fabricators near me somewhere - I can picture them in my head but can't for the life of me remember the location. In Tallaght somewhere is the best I can do

You could try Collins Engineering a try as well, they are primarily an engineering and tool making place but they also so alloy wheel repair and tyres (bit of a mixed bag I know!). They may be able to do something for you...
