I would like to know if there is any other material  i can use maybe a composite which is good replacement for 0.3 mm sheet metal which we used last time (it sucked) . It is harder to drill and fold sheet metal so we were planing to use some other material which is of same weight or less of sheet metal and give good finishing as well 


Question :
Can u please suggest me a material which will serve my purpose?
