.250 Tread Bright 3003 (Measures .190 w/o the diamonds, .250 with)

We just did a job for a co in Denver that uses this material. It is not common, and we had a month lead time from California for it.

Now we have large drop pieces that might work for projects around the cruiser garage. If anyone is interested, we are looking to get rid of the remnants for just under our cost. I figured there might be folks here who might like to have some of this for their projects.

Cost is $1.50 per pound. That is about .20 less per pound than what we paid for it.

We have two sizes:

17 pieces of a 39” x 48”. This one weighs in at 35, and for Rising Sun folks cost is $52.50 each

17 pieces of a 9”x 105”. This one weighs in at 20 pounds, and for Rising Sun folks cost is $30.00 each

These are all super high polish, .250” diamond plate. I will post pictures if someone really needs to see how these things look. I can do that on Monday.

I will update this thread as inventory dwindles.

Please PM me for inquiries and to buy.

Later.

Can they be formed into tub corners?

Yes. The 48 x 39 are big enough you probably could do two, mirrored on the piece. Just depends on size.

If someone had the geometry figured all out, in digital form, I could cut them out of the piece, yes. I also have the ability to form them into tub corners, but they would be step bent and not rolled. Step bending leaves tooling marks every time a hit is made, and this subject was debated on this forum a while back.

Most people do not like them that way. A place with a big/huge slip roller is what is needed.

can you post a quick pic...even phone pic OK. I have two things in mind for the long, narrow pieces.

I left work without taking a picture. I will post one Monday.

I believe I am corrected on the bending. We do have a powered slip roller that can roll these into the 12" or so radius for the tub corners. Does anyone want to take a shot at making a cardboard template?

My template will be unique to others as the rear of my Cruiser strays from Mr. Toyoda's plans a tad...

Nathaniel,
Not knowing what you can do is it possible to cut the 9x105 pieces down to 3 inch strips? Have a idea to use them for the garage. thanks.
