I guess it just depends where you live

My local stockist keeps it on the shelf in handy 2m lengths

If you get really stuck I could post you some up.

I was sneakier than that !! .......... I got several 1.7m lengths from the off-cut bin

If memory serves me right, you'll need about 18 bush tubes ( 16 for the wishbones + 2 for the rear camber adjusters ) Each 35mm long, 1m would be plenty.

I believe there is a spare set of tubes in the workshop wich have been machined to the correct length

Was going to stick them on ebay but never got round to doing it

HI
The tube is the same size as 1"1/4 gas pipe. So you get it from your local pumbers merchant if you cant find it in steel supplier.

I've just looked in the bottomless bucket which holds the 300+ bush tubes, and to my suprise I can see the bottom so if any body wants some I'll wait a week to see how many is wanted then order the steel which will be ERW, just weld the CDS bars to the seams.
The bush tubes will be a 1 each due to the time it takes to cut , BORE and deburr.
