Put the tube partially into the central hole you make in the middle and weld both sides,much stronger.

Put at least 10 mm bolts through roll bar mounts and not book nuts and bolts,domed plated 12.9 cap screws look much better.

Just a suggestion and personally I am happier with it.

Westfield use one bolt through the base of the tube !!!!

Yea its slow going but im in no rush.
I was all set it get a good few hours done last weekend then i woke up on friday night and felt like i had poked myself in the eye.
Long story short i got steel in my eye during the week in work and never noticed
And it took the doc half an hour with a needle to scrape the rust out not a pleasent experience.

I got a few hours this afternoon in the shed.
So i started on the rear panel rails and it was something i wasn't particularly looking forward to as i didnt know anyone with the capability of bending the tubes so i had to notch the tubes to get them to bend
I was also worried about trying to get the two of them to match
So i welded the two tubes together temporarily cut the notches and bent the tubes together
This worked quiet well it also ensured that the two bends were perpendicular

If you know a plumber you can bend 22x1.5mm ERW tube in a Rothenburger tube bender quite nicely.

I used my dads electrical conduit bender for my rear tubes.
Then I cut them off and put them in the bin as I ended up with a grp rear tub. (Vmax)
