Mutibody sheetmetal: assigning different material gauges?

When using mutibodies within a sheetmetal part, is it possible to assign different gauges to the material? In my part file, three bodies are shown in the cut-list (see image). One body, which is the base, is .190 inch thick aluminum. I would like the other two bodies to be 10 gauge (.102 inch) aluminum. So far, I can only use one gauge table setting for all three bodies unless I override the default. Does anyone know of a technique or setting option where I can assign individual gauge table settings to each sheetmetal body as needed?

 

The reason for not making three separate drawings for each sheetmetal part is that they will be welded together, and I do not like to create welds in an assembly due to the file issues. BTW, I am currently using SolidWorks 2014 Premium.
