thats awesome!! gonna pick myself up some .60

i found a supplier locally, but it will actually be MORE expensive to pick it up locally than to just order from these guys!! locally its $49 for a 48x72in sheet.

Different thicknesses for different applications honestly. On average I'd say I use .010 - .030 and thicker stuff for bodies or things that will take a beating.

i use .30 on parts with alot of bends and curves,then i double it to make it .60 for strength.
.60 is harder to bend and curve.
