    I have a LC inspired flatbed tray and canopy project I’m kicking around and will need a source of aluminum materials and CNC cutting and bending of aluminum sheet. I will probably do most of the welding myself but may consider a turn key product if it’s not cost prohibitive. I live in Central Nevada so I’d like to hear some feedback regarding shops that are open to small scale custom work. Thanks in advance!

    Hey! Hit up Dr. Smash Designs. I haven't used him yet, but if he doesn't do aluminum fab, he may know someone who does. He comes highly recommended for fabrication and I'll be getting his help early next year with some stuff.

    Eric (Dr Smash) doesn't do CNC, I don't think he has a brake for bending larger stock either.
    Be prepared to pay a premium for one off work, most shops in Reno want high volume work.
