    Looking for places that carry heavy duty expanded metal (steel) as used on trailer ramp gates. Mine from use is getting a bit bent up and it may just be easier to replace the 4x7 sheet then banging it all out and rewelding it. Any ideas on places to look, especially local places which would eliminate shipping fees?

    thanks

    Look up.........dang it, they're in Joppatown. Intercon? They fabricate truck bodies etc.......should be able to hook you up with anything you want.

    Joppatown exit off 95N......go right, make a right at light and entrance is at the top of the hill on the left........drive down the hill into the bottom. Good folks, I've taken several trucks there from past companies I worked for for various things.
