The aluminium "should" be 1.5 mm, it is oddly soft though.. but the cracking surface is even more strange.That's pretty poor, I'm assuming it's the lock that did the damage. Is the aluminium really thin? They should have pressed a structural shape into the metal (like a Gerry can) to give it extra strength. If it's any consolation it looks much better painted. 👍
Anyway, it's now painted and reinforced!
Nice to hear you like the looks better now, thanks!
