The rearset plates on the winter build-off thread were made locally? They look top notch.

I was thinking on doing some on my own by using poor man's CNC (hacksaw and file) but first I need to source the correct grade aluminum plate...
If you aren't welding on it, 7075 is what I'd pick.

I got some 10mm 5754, though softer than the ones mentioned have held well on my rearsets, and easier to work on with hand tools. If you're interested I can get a shipping quote for you for a piece big enough to make two rearsets.

Or plan ahead and use weldable material. You know, just in case...
Or make spares :)

You do bring up a good point though, would be prudent to account for potential future repairability.

Do note that weldable vs unweldable isn't the only difference in alloys though. 7075 is far, far stronger than 6061 for example.

Aerospace background, difference in alloy well understood.

It's important to consider a) it's a budget build and b) its a track build and c) the extra strength isn't really needed

Those three things suggest a weldable alloy that's easier to work with and later repair is the better choice, for this build.
