Aircraft Spruce looks like the most reasonable supplier. I'm getting ready to order my fuselage material. All they have to offer in their catalog is 6063 T351. 6061 T6 is also an option, but having trouble finding it. Not sure what pros and cons to either one? Plans update calls for either one. Looks like the 6061 T6 would be more expensive

They also have an awesome catalog you can order online.

Let me know how it's going.

BTW, in the Spruce catalog under the metals section is a discription page with info about the types of metals.
