Plating help

Long time lurker and had a question regarding plating. I have searched and end up just finding Cold rolled vs hot rolled threads. Haha

Question is, I’ll be plating some Bronco beams and am doubting myself if 1/8th cold rolled is enough vs 3/16 PNO. Reason I went cold rolled is becuase It will be tig’d and I had a full sheet laying around here at work. The beams will be plated on the front, back, top and bottom. Plus some “speed holes” for a weld in the center of the plate. I forgot to add they are now 4” over stock mimicking the factory C channel those beams have. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
