    I've noticed that Imagestation sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't. Try using http://imageshack.us/ I use them a lot along with my personal site.

    THanks...

    That is a REALLY minimal bumper... definately reduces departure angle.
    Now if I just had a tubing bender..... what wall thinkness is that? .120?

    This might help you a little bit to see how the gas tank skid plate is incorporated into the bumper
    on the MOO Sub. I had some closer pics but they came out too blurry.

    ive been trying to make a plan on how i want to build my bumpers, but what i really need is the materials in front of me so i can start fabbing it up. my question is- where to get the metal? ive tried lowes and home depot but they dont have any tube or plates big enough for me to work with. is there any good discount online retailers for steel? if anyone can help, please post. thanks.

    and dont look homedepod (devil) for steel, look up a local steel suply, even comertial ones will cut stuf to lenght for you, shear plate or what ever you need!
