Get it Chris!
Chris is one of our inherited club members that was banned from the Lone Star group cause he moved to the land of Misery.. He's still trying to get his rig put back together so he can actually wheel..
What's the radius of the die? Chris is needing a shock hoop built. I think his original hoop was 1.25 but 1.5 would work if the radius is tight.. I don't have that small of a die or I'd offer..
Needing a 180+ bend also.. He relocated the springs forward thus his current hoop won't cut it now..
Chris is probaby working a digital feed thought I'd jump in and help the cause..
Thanks for the help Erik.
What he said, I am trying to make a set of shock hoops.
I need to make U shaped hoop and I hear you need a spceial bender to do it.
I need a hoop that is about 12"tall and the weld points to the frame need to be about 8" apart. I have a 60 PS box in the way so I cant use a Ford tower like I had hoped.
I know I have some really thick stuff, .25 wall. I was going to use it for my four link. I don't know if I have enough thinner wall for two shock towers. I'd have to look. The .25 would be way overkill and will not bend 180 degrees very well.
Northern Illinois steel is in Joliet. They might sell 5-6 feet out the door. A welding place should have some 1 1/2. This area is pretty industrial. There should be quite a few places that would have some.
I will find some tube and hopefully pick it up in the morning.
If thats the case what would be good for you? I dont have to be in until 1pm and am done everyday about 8:30pm. Same for the weekend as well.
