WTT: tube bending for parts

i'm putting this in classifieds because it's the trading of goods as currency.

I've got a real tubing bender and a 1 3/4" die and soon getting a 1 1/2" die and i'm looking for work. I can do single bends or complete projects.

the reason i'm doing this is i'm looking to trade work for the parts i need to buildd my buggy, cash always works too.

Here are picks of my last project[IMG][/IMG]

so tube bumpers & stinger bars are not an issue? It would work well for exo'n about anything as well huh?

and If I read right, you are setting up to either do the tube bending as a service or sell kits to DIY tube bender?

I just have a few "wishes"
1) that I had the funds to purchase the tubing needed for my interior cage rebuild
2) I had a truck I was certain would run after I redid the cage
3) I had a good warm place to redo the cage during the winter months

If you could assist with any of those three items, I would have you bend up the tube for my cage.

I don't like it!

My wife actually had a shop build it for me back home. The shop didn't build it quite the way I wanted it installed to begin with. So now that the truck is beyond d.d status, I want to build it the way I want it as well as making it stronger.

I want to redo the A pillar bars so that they are not in the way as you get in, the seat mounts are too high and the rear halo is weak due to the way the shop installed it with a center post instead of placing the down tubes in the corners.

I am also contemplating ripping out the dash and building a custom one in order to place the A pillars tighter to the windshield. I might as well do some major "redecorating" the truck ain't moving currently anyway.
