    Anyone know where to source aluminum stringers in Canada?

    Looking at using aluminum stringers for my turtledeck and the belly for my l-21. I can't seem to find a place other than univair.

    Univair is the only source I know of unless you make them out of wood. I prefer the aluminum ones from Univair.

    I have seen that too. I have also seen what kids and dogs do to that stuff and don't think it will hold up in the long run.

    I would spend the money and got the stringers from Univair. You know they will last at least 20-30 years. I have seen too many cheap imitations sticking through the side of the fabric over the years.
