    If one was doing a rwd install, custom pan etc. and needed to make a custom oil pickup, would there be anything wrong with using copper or aluminum?
    I realize copper could work harden and have a higher chance of breaking, so that's not my first choice, but aluminum doesn't seem to be a horrible option.
    Steel is still my first choice, the question just crossed my mind and wondering what the fab experts have to say on things.
