I tried to get a picture of a piece of the steel up against a ruler, but could not get a good shot.

At any rate, I measured the thickness and it is a tad over 2.5mm. According to this table (http://www.mesteel.com/info/carbon/thickness.htm), that puts my box at 12 gauge. It's not 1/8", but it's pretty goddamn thick.

Today is a glorious day.

I finally moved on to cutting the front panel after finishing the cutting I had to do on the inside panel and rear of the box.

The steel used for the front door of this m*therf*cker is SIGNIFICANTLY thinner than the rest of the box. I'm finishing this baby tonight.....
