Anyone have a source?

    There was a company south of Denver if I remember right that did custom bending primarily for exhaust and advertised in the auto parts section of craigslist. I went thru my bookmarks and notes and couldn't find any info. I think it was a rod shop so maybe try the yellow pages. Sorry I know this doesn't help much.

    Try looking for shops that build tube chassis (Rock Crawlers, Dirt Trackers, Sprints, etc.) Chances are they will have the correct tooling to bend 1.25 Tubing.

    I just found 6 radiator pipes, steel, in my storage for the pickups but they are straight. 1 1/4" x 15" with the little nubs on the end. This is the pipe that was on my 52 F1 but I don't know if they are stock or not.
