You need to be VERY careful doing that. Many construction supply houses don't carry the correct thicknesses or strengths of material for what we need.

www.metalssupermarket.com <---- several locations in the Chicago burbs and one in Fort Wayne.

www.metalexpress.com <--- location in Villa Park,IL( I use another location of this company)

www.onlinemetals.com <--- mail order tubing.

Do a search for Roxtar Fabrication. He is a Land Rover parts maker in your area. He would be able to point you towards local steel vendors.

Look in the yellow pages under 'steel supply'. Also, welding and machine shops typically will carry a good selection of steel.

And, you can look up 'tubing' to find a tubing supplier... Or 'shafting'. But normally they're under 'steel'.

Anyways, the type of place you want will have racks and racks of steel, aluminum, sheet, plate, etc... And a scrap bin.
