    Well I've been dreaming about it for a long time.....

    and today I finally had enough money saved in the "K5 Piggy Bank"......

    ....to buy myself a new tubing bender and tubing notcher setup! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif



    I went with the Pro-Tools M105 HD Bender and three dies (2", 1.5", and 1")....
    and the Williams Low-Buck Notcher (Punch-style, not hole saw style) with all the dies to cut from 1" - 2.5" tube!

    Shipping on most of this stuff is from Florida, so I won't have anything for at least a week. But you guys might as well start thinking of cool things you want made....

    I'm going to be looking for excuses to use this new "toy" as much as possible....!


    Also, I'm going to need to locate a local source for DOM and HREW tubing... the cheaper the better. If someone has a "connection" for this type of thing (Kid Jethro?, Chaz?, Scott?)....let me know! I'd like to get some materials here before the machine arrives, so I'm ready to "bend stuff" the day it arrives!!!

    Can I get a YEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ?!?!?!?

    Greg...

    Whats up my BEST FRIEND?!

    Yeah... you know i'll throw some money your way for bending some tubes for me. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    Rock sliders and a rear cage, and tubes that tie into the frame are on the list, but it may be a while....
    I let you get really good on everyone else's stuff and then I'll be over. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Ryan,

    Don't forget.....once you get some "properly bent" rear cage bars..... I've also got a nice set of "drop in" subwoofer boxes that are perfect for a 1st Gen!

    my only connections for tube would me marmon/keystone in sacramento or Tube Service in milpitas...i dont know if they are wholesale only or not..but you can give em a call and find out...the number for tube service is 408-946-5500 we havent purchased anything from them in years but i know they are still in busisnes because driveline service still buys from them...i think Tube Service would be your best bet anyway...marmon/keystone is very proud of their tube if ya know what i mean

    Mike,

    PLEASE tell me you're joking...! I sent you an e-mail this morning....that post with the pic was deleted because I ran out of space in the gallery. I can take a new one if you (seriously) want it....no problemo. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    The M105 is on www.pro-tools.com ....specifically here
    The "HD" version is just a thicker steel version of the normal bender....more durable when bending 2" stuff.

    As always, I spent more than I wanted between the bender, dies, and notcher...but I know that I got GOOD STUFF, so it will last forever, and do a quality job.

    Ken,

    Time to get SERIOUS with your sliders! No more pipe....just real TUBING from now on!.....

    Just figure out what you want, and how you want it to look and attach to the truck, and I'm sure we can get it built!
