    Steel thickness for a MR2 stretch. How thick ?

    I have a old mr2 knocking about which needs to be scrapped. Thought before i bin it i may have a little attempt with a 10 inch stretch.
    I have seen a couple of vids on what was used in the stretch ie rocker panel,two pieces of 2x4 steel tube and flat steel.
    My question is how thick should the steel be (in mm) ?
    Has anyone there done this stretch before ?
    Any input would be greatly received
