just answered this in the "plans" thread, but here goes it again. 14 gauge should be good enough, but id rather use 11 gauge (.120") or 1/8th" (.125"). I know some SFCs are made out of retangular 14gauge, so it might be strong enough, but .125 is hella stronger. Heavier too, but i think the added stregnth is worth the added weight, which shouldnt be much

P.S.....I am looking into the cost of the material to fabricate the boxes, if anyone is interested, I can let them know of the cost of materials and how long it would take our engineering machine shop to make them...I can let anyone know about a final price also...Thanks for everyone's help!
