Default Scrap aluminium

Does anyone know where I can buy scrap aluminum in the Vancouver area? something like... 2ft by 2ft max sheet. I want to block off the gap between the mb tray and the hd cage of the ATCS840.

On that topic, what is the "best" way to route cables on this case because I have 8 SATA + power and there is a bulge between the sidepanel and the mb tray and it won't close without force, and even then it still bulges.

2 outfits local to me.
Metal Mart , ferrous and non ferrous materials Langley, Surrey, Vancouver BC Canada
METAL SUPERMARKETS - Buy Metal Online - Small Quantity Orders for Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Hot Rolled Steel, Cold Rolled Steel for Delivery or Local Pickup

Your other option is to find a scrap metal dealer, and hope they've got something that works.

Aluminum sheet isn't too cheap, nor too easy to find. If you will be painting it anyway, you could just go with some galvanized mild steel used for ductwork. You will be able to find it for cheap at most hardware stores.
