.10mm if you are brave and .20 if you want to be safe.

It can be hard to find too but if you google "shim steel" or "stainless shim" you will find it.

I get mine from [link=http://www.repco-tech.co.uk/html/contactus/]Here[/link]

With a twin wall, .127mm will do. I have made very Very Similar many times. Roy
