Linking Sheet Metal Parameters

I have been looking/working on a system to assist me with linking my sheet metal Gauge parameters to my custom properties. The parameter I would like to link is thickness and when you link a thickness in solidworks it shoots out a decimal: ".0747". However I would like it to read 14 Ga.

I have currently set up a design table within the sheet metal part that references the thickness dimension and through "If" statements I am able to produce a value of 14 Ga. which I then link to my custom properties. The issue with this system however is that when I change the gauge of my material, my custom properties does not update unless I update my design table..

Does anyone have an API or a solution to this issue? Thank you
