I see on vans website they do not carry a 1 x 1.25 x. 125 angle. I appears that vans no longer offers this size angle. Does anyone know of an acceptable replacement material for this section? It appears to be the only place on the plane that this dimension material is called for.
Order the AA6-125X1 1/2X2X10 (10" or 30") and fabricate the required piece. This is a structural piece with a radius at the interior vertex. Don't sub it with a piece from the local metal shop.
