Default Where can I buy diamond plate aluminum?

Does anyone know of a place that sells sheets of diamond plate aluminum in the Flint area? I called a couple steel places and none of them have it. I need a piece of 1/8" diamond plate cut to a certain size (about 3'x3'). Somone has to have it.

I buy mine from Padnos in lansing. They have scrap pieces and there's a good chance that they'd have one in that size. it's be way cheaper than new too.

Thanks for the suggestions. I finally found a couple places that can order it. about $125.00 for a 3'x3' piece. Too expensive for me so im going to change my design a little and use steel instead.
