Long shot, but there is a restoration shop in Maine named "Firefly Restorations" - they specialize in fire equipment - phone - 207-763-3828

If anyone knows who, it would be them...

Restoration Supply Company Restoration supply comapany in California sells some pyramid alluminum. Here is the description.

Pyramid Aluminum

We offer the correct pyramid aluminum used on many Pierce-Arrows and

other vehicles, fire trucks, and vintage aircraft. The aluminum is .025 thick,

rall thickness of a stamped sheet is .065, base of the pyramid is .135, and

there are 7 pyramids per inch. The sheets are shipped coiled, and because

they are stamped from half-hard aluminum, they will uncoil and lay flat

without any additional work. Available in 16"x 80" sheets only.

ALU001 $350/sheet
