Remember that strength is in geometry. Look at some of the stuff that Bill Trombley has recently posted. Flanged holes don't just look cool, they add strenght. Lips and beads add stiffness. Backer plates add strength to areas where things are going to be bolted on. A compound curve is vastly more rigid than simple rolls or flat planes.
