picked up some saws-all blades.

also
picked up some
2" DOM about 24" long, .120 wall
1.5 DOM about 21' long, .120 wall
4" wide strap about 10' long, 1/4" thick
ordered a 11/16"-18 right handed tap as well.
my new pitman arm, the tapper was too big so it is being welded full and retappered tonight.

ive got a sketch with some measurements of the arc i want in the tube, also cut some plates out of the strap that i will use for gusseting the shock/coil hoop.


i think that is about all i need, planning on cutting everything Friday.

1.5" i have no idea... the guy i bought it from doesnt even know.

2" at 24" long was 17.99

DOM is pricey.


I cant seem to find anyone that has a mandrel bender around so looks like i will be waiting another day before i can start. he said he can bend it Saturday... this just messes with my head so much. man im pissed day ruined... lol
