I want to put cap strips on my Lazair.

Material.
Does the metal need to be aircraft grade?

I have a 8 x 4 sheet of aircraft grade metal for bulkheads in a
plane I planned to build...
BTW I do not want to butcher it for metal.

What metal have owners used for cap strips?

Second, I remember one pilot saying he used screws instead of
pop rivets, any comments on that?
