Do you know the thickness? Search for “stucco aluminium sheet” on eBay there’s a few thicknesses.

Intrigued!
You sure that size is correct?

My Devon steps 2 x OG were all steel..
One on Catherine and one from Gordon Patterson.

My fabricated one is all steel

Thank you for the link . It is in fact what im using now.
Problem is i have a spaceway side hinged cooker that swings out the cargo door. The autocraft step has a lip to tuck the lino under that stops the cooker from swinging out

I do know that RobE has made just that style of step. He would advise where he bought the alloy from..
I would say yes 0.75 or 0.8mm would be fine.
Surely you would be making the floor edging (not step) across the full width..
Off to steal a picture from his thread..

I have seen this described as hammered finish..
You do see this on eBay..
Kevin Jackson made a cooker case for me from this.....
