i wouldn't go with alumnium or stainless just go with mild steal and paint it black or any color you want or DOM tubing i would recomen 3 1/4 inch DOM tubing length however long you want it but since i make grind rails and sell them i would just go with mild steal easy to weld on and work with then alumnium and stainless
