What about these weld-on tube ends?

They are used in rally cars to add bracing tubes to existing roll bars. Diam is 40mm.

Now that's a damned good idea Sylvain and the best bit is I can go and collect them as they are only 5 miles away from me.

Agree, took me ages to get a bent bit of CDS tubing from someone at a reasonable rate done correctly.

it's not so much what he manufactured it's the fact he totally ignored me with regards to the materials. I requested 3mm wall thickness and he used 6 mm and it ways a bloody ton, and an aweful lot more work to drill through.

Raise the spring rate on the rear to compensate Arfon

Think I will need air ride to compensate, hey air ride now I bet thats something no-one has tried on a haynes, went to demon tweaks and got the parts, 11 and odd pence don't forget if you look at demon tweaks you have to add vat. Did you know that jjc rally is also demon tweaks but cheaper.

Collected them yesterday, away on holiday from Friday so watch this space for the progress on the roll-bar saga
