Default Aluminium Sheet 7075 or.....

Looking to source some aluminium to make a car chassis. Been advised 7075 in a 2.5mm although getting hold of this seems almost impossible in a small 390mm x 100mm piece.

Advice please, do i really need 7075, need a couple of bends to put into the sheet 25 deg. If not 7075 what grade would you aim to obtain, any tips on where to get it from?

Many thanks.

I've used this for chassis .. needs cutting for the flat bit and would probably require heating to bend it but other than that its very tough which can't be said for some of the ali sheet on ebay !!
