Are structural profiles (product # BSF-30720, manufactuer=Bosch) from the Small Parts Special Items and Components for FIRST Robotics Competion Catalogue considered to be part of the small parts cost? If so, is it legal to obtain the same structual aluminum profiles from a separate distributer as part of your additional parts?

As long as you are recording the price of those structual aluminum the same as small parts, and make sure you are within the small part budget.

If your extrusions are smaller that 2" X 3" you need
not account for them at all, nor buy them from Small Parts.

Extrusions are on the additional material list –
unlimited!

My interpretation is that unlimited means unlimited
(but 130 lbs is still 130 lbs!)
