bend a couple tubes for me?
Permalink  
 


Pulled the roll cage out of the corner, and started playing pretend.

 

Competition Engineering didn't quite provide me with what i had hoped. The rear struts (from the main hoop into the rear hatch area) are perfectly straight, which in turn, will look crazy stupid not being paralell with the rear glass. Since they give you so much "extra" pipe on those bars, i'd like to add a bend up near the hoop, allowing them to come out horizontally first, before heading downward, thus making them paralell with the glass.

 

The tubing is 1.75x.125 wall. I don't want no hack crap, a kink, a bulge, or a pie cut and reweld job.

 

I'd probably be ready and have the proper dimensions (angle, and location of the bend) in a couple weeks.

 

Let me know fellas.  beer

An exhaust bender can't handle the wall thickness

Buddy of mine turned a junk cage into a spare tire carrier on his jeep. He had to heat it to get the exhaust bender to bend it.
