Default Thickness of the seamless steel

I have searched the book but cannot find any reference as to the thickness of the seamless tube use for the wishbones. How thick should they be?

I assume these tube thicknesses apply to both front and rear wishbones?

Also, what wall thickness should the roll hoop be?

Yes front and rear, the roll bar is 3.2mm wall seamless I believe, but I've no way of checking other than cutting it off!

Cheers

Chris

Is this still the reccommend guage of the wishbone tubes? This is what I bought and created mine from but I have read later threads that contradict this?

Just got myself a bit worried.
