Re: Monocoque help, what alloy to use
Not sure this will be of much help - but the last few times I've tried working with 2024-T3 have resulted in extreme disappointment. Particularly disappointing since I had apparently pulled from the wrong bin when I thought I was pulling 6061-T6..
In my opinion - the 2024-T3 is probably just fine for flat or nearly flat panels that require no welding.. Even trying to bend a 24" long panel with a 1" radius took all the mite I could muster and even then, it resisted holding it's shape far more than anything else I've even encountered.
