Fabrication needed

I would like to build a simple light bar for my front bumper.

Does any one have a length of tubing (could be anywhere from 1.5"-2.0" diameter 6'-8' long) and a tubing bender?

Fabricator will be duely compensated for time an materials.

Re: Fabrication needed

yeah I read this and thought, ummm. Over obligate myself and have more on my plate currently, or wait till I get back from anniv on next tue (leave Fri) and then see how time is looking and see if he still needs it done. But then I remembered I have to drop off both die sets to Skulivan out in ventura on our way out on fri. So I wouldnt be able to bend anything bigger then conduit.

I could do a couple quick bends etc, a little far but if nothing else.

Not really. I made my whole cage out of 1 3/4 and it is pretty stout and I was thinking 2" may be a little overkill for a light bar.

Re: Fabrication needed

Something like this, but maybe not so tall, don' nedd the side bars either. I have two sets of lights to mount, Hella 500 driving and Hella 500 fog.

1.5" would be ideal, but I'm open to diameter. I was hoping that someone had a 6'-8' pice of tubing lying around that could be bent into a light bar hoop thingy.
