    If he is using DOM then I would say its a good deal. It is still not a bad deal with HREW.

    1 inch won't cut it. Needs to be at least 1 5/8's or 1 3/4's.

    Preferably 1 3/4's.

    Buy him a die for his bender if you want 1 3/4. He may give you a discount.

    most of the race car shops around here use 1.75" .095 wall HREW. its not stuff i would want to run in my heavy truck.

    ive never priced out a cage, so im not sure on the price. i will build my own.
