Steel - so they could be welded in to the outer wheel housing and inner trunk pan. I wanted everything as structurally sound as possible on my build. I would use aluminum if I wanted that race car look where everything was beaded and rolled aluminum with a full cage of course.

I also used steel for the same reasons. Seems like a better choice for street use.

Steel for me, too. Much more solid when putting the back pieces together with steel.

Remember you're unique...just like everyone else...

Re: Tubs ???

If you are doing a functional street car i dont think aluminum is a rational choice
