    I need nerfs for the coupe but have no idea what I want. Rest assured that I'll know it when I see it.

    10-4. The ones on the sides are nerf bars. The ones on the front and rear are bumpers. Gary

    I've always known these as nudge bars, but maybe that more closely defines the small singular items rather than a full width bumper style item.

    They are so much of a hot rod item, but sadly some on occasions just look so industrial and butt ugly on the wrong car. Nerf bars done well really look the part.

    I always like looking at the side bars in front of the rear wheel, I find these the hardest to make look good.
    I guess they say speedway more than hot rod.

    I am working on a pair of front bars for my current project which I will post when they are done.

    Hey Ryan, I was reading this thread to get some ideas for my new ride. It reminded me of one your dad and I did years ago. Do you remember this one?

    Brackets are large, but the plan is to weld in a receiver hitch to tow a vintage camper into the Symco car show. 20170811_160707.jpg

    So im kicking around the idea of making a front nerf bar for my single seater build. My question is how do you roll a piece of 3/4 stock into a circle? I want to build an old school bar that has a top and bottom with a circle in the middle with a letter T inside the circle. image.jpg

  25. I think I would heat it and pull it around a pulley (or similar) of the appropriate size? Use stainless and polish it all when you are done. Cheaper than a chrome shop!

    While on a summer visit to my Grandparents home in Stamford, CT I found a complete nerf tube bumper by the railroad tracks. About 1 in heavy wall tubing and chrome plated, my Father knew what it was but would not let me take it back home. I think that I was about 8 or 9 at the time.

    I'd weld an end of the 3/4 to the inside of a wheel with the diameter you like ant then heat the bar and turn the wheel. Bob

    Hey, what do you guys think of the nerf / chin bar on this 40 pickup?


    I'm really thinking about this for my 41, instead of a bumper.
