Stainless shorts would be HEAVY. Then again, you'd have to occasionally repair the aluminum.

When u say 16 G, do u mean SWG or AWG? I used some 16 G 1/4 links from the Ring Lord and pulled off a beautifull 6-1 diamond patch. On the other hand, I have woven a patch using rebar tie wire (16 AWG 1/4) and the weave was a little tight. Not to the point of being un-manageable, but it was defenatly at the lower tolerance limit. If u are using AWG, then u may want to go to 9/32 instead. It is still stronger than 5/16, but a little more manageable than 1/4. Just a thought.
