Default Where can I buy flat T6 aluminum for landing gear?

Any idea where I can buy T6 aluminum to make my own landing gear? The custom built main gear I am looking at would cost $38. I have access to a metal break so bending is no issue but trying to find the material is....any suggestions?

Cheers

Mike

Aircraft Spruce and Specialty is where I buy most of my materials for full scale stuff.

Heres a link to the sheet metal you seek: http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalo...heet_short.php

Check out the whole catalog. They have a lot of useful stuff.
