Looking good 👍

What grade aluminium did your fabricator use? Something like 6061 or 6082 will have an excellent corrosion resistance without further anodising.

We used a Peraluman plate (AlMg3), because it is more malleable.
For corrosion resistance, but mainly for esthetic reasons, it will be anodized anyway.
