    Looking for material

    Trying to find sheets of 304 in 22 to 26 gauge with a quilted emboss like what is seen decorating old diners, barber shops and food concession trucks.
    Since I only need a couple of sheets, need to find it locally (freight on a 48" x 120" dimension is prohibitively expensive).
    I'm in Houston. Any ideas?

    I think you can search over internet or get some reference from your friends and family.

    I dunno about that. I think it all depends. I purchased some 22ga, 304, quilted sheet metal from http://www.commercemetals.com/stainl...en-backsplash/ a while back for a kitchen backsplash job, and shipping was $120 or so. Now that was almost local, but they have online shipping quotes, and I checked what it cost out to CA to see if I could get em down. The cost was only $200 or so, which I guess is still somewhat pricey depending on what you can get the metal for locally.

    Have you tried this outfit? Even though they are fabricators, they might be willing to sell you stock.
