Ok the 3/16 Aluminum is a pain to cut. So I'm getting a band saw to do the rest of the cutting.
Also I decided to get a Mig Welder to do the welding.
Soon as I get the parts cut, I'll post pics of the parts before and after welding them.

I used a blueprint of the Outer Ankle for practice.
Getting parts sometimes can be a slow process, So then you make it yourself.
I'll be using 3/16 Aluminum for the ankle. I'll cut the pieces myself and get them welded at my local shop. Had a problem getting small amounts of Aluminum and someone posted
this site : www.asapsource.com. I'll just order from them.

When you buy the Aluminum skins, Make sure you save the extra panels.
I made my own Vent from one of the panels.
I know its not as good as a laser cut vent, But it sure saved some money .
To make the deep boxed area, I used some 1 inch Aluminum tubing.
Its not perfect, But it works.
