    Anyone know where to buy a 4'x4' sheet of 5052 H32 Aluminum? An aluminum roofs for UTVs with a drip edge is nearly $400. I know I can fabricate a roof, but I would have to buy a 4'X10' sheet locally. The Roof is for a Can-Am Commander.

    You might check on galvanized flashing from a hardware store/Lowes/etc. (it's available in lightweight gauges).

    Just a thought. :drunk2:

    I pretty much want to stay with aluminum. Flashing is not thick enough, but a good idea. I need the aluminum to be 0.080 -0.125 thickness.

    Flashing is available in various gauges, I just assumed you wanted to go with a light weight material.

    Luck in any case. :drunk2:

    Might check with some sign shops they may have a piece laying around from a leftover sign they made.
