Tubewerk- the beginning...

So Just got a jd2 bender, 250' pipe so I am going to begin doing some bending. I really have no clue so my plan is to start with a stinger, some form of front wrap around tube bumper, tube flares tied into my sliders and plated unibody, and progress from there. I dont want a retarded big stickin out thing as a stinger, Just wondering what some of you have done. How long, and at what angle?

Welded directly to my detours backbone, I will be tied in to my front tube flares for support and then near the top to my cage as it progresses

Re: Tubewerk- the beginning...

i dont have large open spaces of cement pad, so for my cage i used plywood for a template.

you could allways sell off your bought bumper, and build your own, putting the profits towards tools! im currently saving for a plasma!
whens the cage start?(assuming you dont have one currently)
