    I would like to make some tube parts for F/S chevy's like bumpers and doors. Now I am not trying to sell anything as a vendor, yet, just looking for a test rig to get some measurements on and brain storm with. You would need to drive your rig 12 miles South of Des Moines and you can have what ever we make if you put in some for the steel we used. The tube is 1.75 and that is the only die I have so there are no other options. I would use my truck but there isn't much there to go off of.

    Anyone interested send me a PM

    I am 90% done with my tube work now and I really have a feel for bending now. The tube bed is 99% done and now I have to build the front tube fenders and do some extra bracing and that will be ALL!!!
