Default Looking for alum chassis company

I'm looking for company who can make an alum chassis for VBC D08,
yes I know they have own but.. I would like to try a different company(aftermarket)

May be just bite the bullet and get another "own" alum chassis.. but love to see if any company is willing to make one.. would like to make some changes to the original.

TIA

Open the yellow pages and search for a metal work shop. Enough to find that can mill or watercut a chassis but it is not cheap, for sure if they have to scan the old chassis and draw a new one.

I think that Christian Tabush from Reflex Racing can also do some custom stuff.

Where are you located? I've got a huge range of thicknesses and grades of aircraft aluminium available.

Also have CNC equipment available for use.

Just seen where you are located.

I could ship but no idea on cost. I can take measurements off a pattern using a FARO CMM machine if there are no drawings available.

I have been looking for a after market aluminum vbc d08 chassis also. Bezerk in Australia will not do it as I contacted them and they indicated they only do graphite now.
