From my earlier posting, I now have partially disassembled my garage
door and scraped and wire-brushed the steel along the bottom edge, and
spray-painted it with Rustoleum something or other. But, the inside
bottom edge of the bottom panel is wasted away in several sections. I
am trying to find 1 x 3/4 x 1/8 inch aluminum angle to use along the
edge. I can find 1 x1 x 1/8 easily at Grainger and other places. But
no one seems to carry 1 x 3/4 x 1/8 in angle, of any length. Anyone
know of places that stock 8' lengths of 1 x 3/4 AL angle material?

Not a standard size and I doubt you'll find it. Best bet would be to
buy the 1 x 1 and either cut it or mill it to size. Aluminum can be
cut with a tablesaw and carbide tipped blade. Bandsaw with a fine
tooth blade works too. Have a neighbor or co-worker that does
Can be done on a milling machine, but not many hobby people have them
and a real machine shop would want $15 to $75 to do a setup.
Bring it over and I'll do it for you in about two minutes.
