    Does anyone know of anyone that could bend my 3 tubes? Maybe even supply the stock too?

    2 tubes, each ~36" long, 1.5"Ø O.D., 1 - 80° bend, 3" radius.
    1 tube, ~60" long, 2.0"Ø O.D., 2 - 68° bends, single plane, 6" radius.

    They are for a bumper I designed and am fabricating myself for my Scout II. I just can't bend the 3 tubes.

    I live in Westminster and am willing to pay reasonable $$.

    Either reply here or PM me.

    Thanks!

    You might try D&C in Colorado Springs. I don't know anyone in the Denver area that would. You may also want to post something on the RMB-Denver/Longs Peak e-mail list.

    Thanks Dale.

    I have one lead on a J**P fabricator in Thornton who's reasonable and very good. I just thought I'd try to stay in the IH community first.

    I'll give the RMB North e-mail list a go.

    Well I'm missing something obvious obviously...:hammer:

    I subscribed to the rmb_northmetro list but for the life of me can't figure out where to find the actual e-mail address for sending out a message...

    Got the list of all the members. Is there one "catch-all" address or do I just add all the individual addresses to the e-mail I wish to send?

    Once you are on the list just send an e-mail to the list and it makes the distribution.

    Denver list address is "rmb_northmetro@binderbulletin.net".

    Dave,

    Spidertrax in Hygiene (West of Longmont) will sell you the tube and bend it to your spec's. Note that their specialty is Sami's and Rock buggys, but they're good guys and do IH stuff on occasion. :)

    D and C will do the same, I'm sure.

    I don't know of anyone in the actual Metro area that does anymore. I'm sure there are probably a dozen places that would, but I don't have those contacts.

    HTH,

    Will Marsh

    Thanks everyone.

    The tubes are the final assembly and about 2~3 weeks away at best. As that time draws near I'll get more serious and investigate the leads I have and have been given.
