a couple questions
just looking at the tubes at the box and tubes for the chassis, to get an idea of prices etc, have a couple questions,
the book calls for 19x19mm box, is this what everyone used, or did you use 20x20mm, coz i cant find 19x19mm anywhere.
the 25mm and 19mm seamless tube for the wishbones, does it have to be seamless and what is the wall thickness on these as i cant seem to find it.
and finally the 5" diameter pipe for the rear upright what is the wall thickness on that.
thanks guys

I got a chassis kit, and it used 20x20mm box section instead! Its fine!

i bought the chassis steel all cut to the right angles and length not including the seamless tube for 230 dilivered from a company call armoto on ebay so i could start building straight away. also got a chassis plate kit 81 from 3ge well worth the money.

I'm using 25mm ERW tube throughout the chassis as I'm putting a V8 in mine and want more strength, I've had to make a few changes where tubes overlap on acute angles but nothing major.

As far as the wishbones are concerned to ensure accuracy and quality, I bought mine from 3ge, and it saves you having to make the jigs too. By the way you get a 10% discount with them for being a member here! See the thread below:
