    Well, I am almost trail-ready again. I narrowed the tub about 4 inches on both sides and now I want to add some tube. Can anyone help me bend and weld about 6 simple or straight tubes? I'll do the grinding and cutting, you do the skilled stuff /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    I can buy beer and a good dinner? and of course I'll pay you for the wire/gas. I'll bring the tube and the rest.

    You wanna make a trip down to Phx... I can fix you up.

    Only problem is... I don't have a 1.75" die. I only have 1.5". How thick is the tube?

    yes, I can cruise down to Phx. I'm just not sure how 1.75 x .120 wall will look with 1.5? Do you think it will look okay?

    I can if I'm in town. Marv is definitely going to have more skill/experience then I though.
