I'll guess the thickest material -- 18 gauge, since it was located inside the body itself.

Good thought Paul, but they aren't 18 gauge:(

I live in Massachusetts and above ground home heating oil tanks are 12 gauge steel by code. If the answer is not 18 gauge I've got to go with 20. Can't be 25 or 30, just can't be!

20 it is fellow "BAY STATE'R"!!:)..... (And our Avantis are only twenty-one cars apart!..They probably waved to each other on production line!:D)
