    That's California, for those of you not-local :haha:

    Since Greg72 left town, I don't know anybody out here with a bender.

    I'm doing up my roll cage and need a coupla S-bends in either 1.75" or 2" tube ... I'll supply the tube and dimensions, just need it bent.

    Prefer to use a member rather than a shop as (1) I like to support CK5 and (2) I'm cheap. (I will happily throw a little $$ at you to amortize the cost of the tool or bring beer or whatever though!)

    Anyway, I'm in the east bay but can travel some depending on details.

    Thanks!

    I want to see how your project goes as I will be in the market for a six point roll cage for the 76 one of these days.

    LOL. You know how it started, anyway!

    I'm tweaking the cage though ... cut off the rear legs, as they interfered with my rear bar, and I've tied that front cage into the rear bar. I want to tie the 'feet' of the front and middle sections together, runner along the bottom, and then run a coupla bars across the bottom to mount the seats to.

    That's prolly phase 2 though. Nobody local with a bender? Dammit, I don't wanna hafta buy my own yet... :D
