thanks!
This is an incredibly helpful reference project for me, appreciate you taking the time to share.

what is the gauge and dimension of your steel beams, how far did you space them?

Have you had it down the road?

Just would like some reassurance from someone else who has attached aluminum panels to their build with VHB tape. Did you take precautions so your panels didnít warp? Iím using .050 aluminum and plan on using no rivets or screws just VHB tape to hold it on.
I did. And yes. You need 4 people to apply the panel. Donít try it any other way. 3m primer 94 is a must too.
