Default 3003 or 5052 aluminium

3003 or 5052 aluminium for fan shroud. And is .080 heavy enough? I have a friend that wants help in making a radiator fan shroud for his dodge diesel truck. He wants to mount a duel electrical fan in place of the clutch fan. He is bracket racing this truck and he is noticing that the fan is engaging at times he would not want it to. The electric fan will give him the control he wants.
Please, need suggestions on material and thickness. I have little experience with aluminium. I do have a good box break to bend the material.

What say you?
